Preventive care helps you stay on top of your health and wellness. About 60% of Americans have one or more chronic conditions, but many of those are preventable through consistent routine health care.
Preventive care at Healthcare at the Grove gives you control over your health and enhances your whole-body health, wellness, and happiness.
Preventive care includes individually tailored medical care for every person and situation. Some aspects of preventive care include:
General health care includes screenings for common chronic conditions like Type 2 diabetes and routine immunizations. Screening recommendations differ with age and sex.
Women’s preventive care includes Pap smears (cervical cancer screening) and pelvic exams. In addition, the team provides referrals for mammograms, colonoscopies, bone density scans, and other screenings based on your age and health needs.
Men’s health care includes referrals for colonoscopies and other necessary tests.
Pediatric health care includes school physicals, sports physicals, and general screenings based on your child’s age and medical history.
Health needs change as you age. Geriatric preventive care includes situation-specific screenings as well as advance care planning to direct your future health care.
Occupational health care helps employers protect their employees by diagnosing and preventing illnesses that affect their work and lives as a whole. This type of care includes health screenings, drug testing, immunizations, infectious disease screenings (tuberculosis and hepatitis), wellness education, and injury prevention.
Healthcare at the Grove also offers other types of preventive care, aiming to provide truly comprehensive care for your family and the community as a whole.
The team generally recommends wellness visits once a year. Preventive care appointments are separate from acute and chronic illness care.
If you have a chronic illness, you need to monitor your health closely. Remote patient monitoring (RPM) gives you tools, like a home blood pressure cuff, to keep track of your health at home. The medical equipment transmits your readings directly to the Healthcare at the Grove team so they can help you with problems that arise.
