Checklist for keeping healthy as you age
Women 65+ years of age
At Welia Health, we view aging as a privilege and believe that advancing in age does not have to mean sacrificing health and vitality.
Optimal health begins with nutrition, exercise and annual well-visits. Welia Health’s Women’s Health providers offer expertise and guidance to help you maintain health and well-being at this stage of your life. They also recognize the importance of proactively addressing age-related issues such as prolapse, incontinence, osteoporosis, heart disease, arthritis or mental health concerns. From routine maintenance to advanced care, Welia providers want to support you with your health goals and help you age wonderfully.
For women with Medicare Part B insurance coverage, your no-cost annual wellness visit is an important step to help you focus on managing your overall health and preventing disease while providing a valuable opportunity to talk to your provider about your wellness. Breast and pelvic exams are covered every other year.
Ask your provider about the following during your annual exam.
