American Stroke Awareness Month

This May is National Stroke Awareness month and our Genesis Health Care team is encouraging patients to take steps to lower their risk of having a stroke.

A few steps that you can take to help prevent stroke are:

  • Managing your diabetes
  • Exercising regularly & managing your weight
  • Lowering your blood pressure
  • Quiting smoking
  • Eating healthy and keeping active
  • Taking your prescribed blood pressure medicines

With these steps along with advice from your doctor, you can work toward living a healthier life! Learn more by visiting https://www.mindyourrisks.nih.gov/
