In our youth, we feel invincible. We may feel invincible as we age, too, but the truth is we are not. Actually, it’s more important than ever to pay attention to our health. An annual wellness visit for seniors may not seem like a big deal, but it should be a high priority.
Changes as We Age
Our physical activity changes as well as our diet and nutrition. Diabetes becomes a bigger risk factor and can lead to lifestyle changes. Now is not the time to put our health on the back burner. Unfortunately, while very important, so many do not get an annual wellness visit for seniors.
Not everyone offers the annual wellness visit program set forth by Medicare and Medicaid, and those that do aren’t always in the area’s that need them the most.
Changes on the Horizon
In an effort to do better, some changes have been proposed to help get the under-served population more help. Some ideas include procedures and tests that will be used in other assessment practices to help reduce time spent for the busy staff and connecting to other services and support programs.
