Expos and Blood Pressure

Hunter Disability Expo is coming up and we are offering blood pressure checks

Hey there, fellow caregivers! Our crew is looking forward to seeing you at the #HunterDisabilityExpo on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th May! Come and say Hi at Booth 75 and get a blood pressure check while you are at it 👩‍⚕️. Jocelyn and Brooke will be (wo)manning the booth and are ready to talk all things Care and Supports, Complex Assessments and Care Plans, Healthcare Worker Training and more! But back to blood pressure…

Why is a blood pressure check a good idea? Think of it as a preventative thing, here are a few good reasons 🙂

Early Detection of Issues: High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, often has no noticeable symptoms in the early stages. Regular checks allow healthcare providers to identify potential problems early before they develop into more serious conditions.

Reduced Risk of Complications: Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to a range of dangerous health complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney damage and vision loss. Monitoring and managing your blood pressure can significantly reduce these risks.

Informing Treatment Plans: If your blood pressure readings indicate a problem, your doctor can work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan, whether that involves lifestyle changes, medication or a combination of approaches.

Baseline Measurements: Knowing your normal, healthy blood pressure range provides an important baseline. This allows you to spot any changes or concerning trends over time, which can signal the need for further investigation.

Overall, making blood pressure checks a routine part of your healthcare regimen is a simple but vital step in maintaining your wellbeing. It’s a small investment of time that can provide valuable insights into your cardiovascular health

So I referenced the correlation between blood pressure and expos. It’s alot of organisation to get there, team man hours and working out how to get the best return on investment, all while providing valuable information to Participants and Key Partners. It can get stressful! If you find yourself in Newcastle in May 2024, reach out and say Hi at the Hunter Disability Expo!

If you or a support team member needs some training or supports, reach out to our team.

Kind regards,
