Kare Plus Supports Urology Awareness Month
Thursday, August 31st, 2023 | Awareness Month
The Urology awareness campaign was originally started by the Urology Foundation with the main aim to raise urology health awareness issues, as well as raise money to fund research and education.
September stands as a significant month dedicated to raising awareness of the urology campaign.
According to the Urology Foundation Statistics, urology diseases have affected up to fifty million individuals globally.
As a leading social and healthcare industry in the UK, we are using this opportunity to raise awareness about urological diseases and conditions by participating in Urology Awareness Month.
Kare Plus provides a wide range of high-quality care services, helping people who are either affected or non-affected by urology diseases to achieve a healthy lifestyle through life-changing health tips.
We also provide diverse care services such as dementia care, residential supported living, home care, elderly care, learning and physical disabilities, live-in care, respite care, rehabilitation support, and spinal injury.
Regarding this pressing issue, Kare Plus will be empowering people on the need to maintain good urinary health conditions throughout September.
