During National Heart Month, it's important to prioritize our heart health and take proactive measures to prevent potential health issues. At Assured Senior Living Solutions, we believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy and happy life, which is why we are proud to introduce our Director of Nursing Services, Kristin Turnage, RN, of Assured Nursing Solutions. Kristin has a special message for our local Clovis and Fresno senior communities*, reminding us of the significance of monitoring our blood pressure and taking care of our hearts.
The month of February is filled with ideas of love and romance. While you are looking for ways to share your love, remember to take care of your HEART. A good place to begin is to know your blood pressure. What is YOUR normal? Do you run high? Do you run low? Is your blood pressure trending high or trending low? A practical way to monitor your blood pressure is to get an automatic cuff at Amazon or Walmart. Write down the day and time, and what your blood pressure is reading. If you have any questions or concerns, you can make an appointment with your doctor and bring your blood pressure log with you.
Stress, salt intake, anxiety, weight gain, and medications can affect your blood pressure. To help you get a jumpstart on your heart health, Assured Nursing Solutions is available this month to come to your community to offer complimentary blood pressure checks. Individuals can walk in or set up a time to come to our office in Clovis on Fridays between 12-1 pm. Call us at 559-283-5522 to schedule a time with our RN. We are here to support you in your health and wellness journey.
