“He who cures a disease may be the most skillful, but he who prevents it is the safest physician.” -Thomas Fuller

With the rise of different diseases, health awareness is an indispensable program that we can provide nowadays. This is essential to promote knowledge, prevent some diseases, and reduce the number of individuals who have chronic illnesses.

We at Lowenhill Home Care Services will conduct training programs for the whole month of November this year. Our focus will be about the various aspects to consider to have some knowledge on common health issues. The goal of this course is to advance health awareness for every individual and family in our community.

We have listed the diverse health topics based on the awareness themes for this month. The checklist includes the websites that have the specialization on a particular health issue and how you can connect to them.
