While it is touted that age is nothing but a number, it is important for senior adults to get a regular checkup to prevent or manage any health conditions that are associated with aging. These include conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, and cancer.
Hormonal changes can also bring about concerns on weight management, while the natural aging process may also affect memory, eyesight, and hearing. The good news is that with good nutrition, healthy habits, immunization, and an active lifestyle, one can prevent health issues and age more gracefully. Through regular checkups, a doctor can advise seniors on how to take good care of their health and help them stay active in the years to come.
In its mission to offer quality healthcare coupled with convenience, Healthway Medical offers PrimeCheQ, a customized executive checkup for senior citizens. Its complete diagnostics and comprehensive physical evaluation ensure that every aspect of the senior citizen’s health will be assessed through laboratory tests, imaging procedures, eye screening, posture evaluation and other specialist consultations. It also has a geriatric screening, developed especially for older people, to evaluate their functional ability, physical, cognitive and mental and socio-environmental circumstances. Examinations that detect cervical cancer among women (pap smear) and prostate cancer among men (prostate-specific antigen test) are also included.
Healthway Medical promotes excellent patient care experience and convenience to its PrimeCheQ customers. The results of the check-up are available within 24 hours after the completion of the tests. According to Healthway Medical’s Vice President for Sales and Marketing Carmie de Leon, aside from being in line with the clinic’s long-standing commitment in cultivating preventive healthcare and giving people of all ages access to quality health and wellness. “This health assessment consists only of the tests that they need and are suited for their age, which makes it focused and more cost efficient. With its complete diagnostics and comprehensive physical evaluation, our senior patients are assured that every aspect of their health is assessed. In addition, a geriatric review and consultation with specialists are included to make this checkup an exceptional experience.” A proactive lifestyle through preventive healthcare will enable older adults to enjoy their post-retirement activities more.
