Self care means knowing how to keep fit and healthy, how to deal with medicines appropriately, manage self-treatable conditions and when to seek appropriate clinical help.
This year’s Self Care Week takes place from November 14-20.
More needs to be done to support people to better look after their own health. Empowering individuals to self care has many benefits for their short term and
long term health and this is important since people are living longer.
Helping people to look after their own health, and their family’s health also
helps to manage demand on health services.
