The definition of this type of care has changed within the past several years. It used to be considered as having a routine examination or procedure performed even through there were no particular problems present.
Wellness Care today is totally different and means “optimum health”. This care begins with the patient taking responsibility for their own health. Each person has unique needs in order to experience optimal well-being, some need to correct diet and weight issues while others need to become more physically fit and exercise more. Some people have diseases which are present in their family genetics such as heart disease, diabetes or ageing disorders and other people want to prevent or retard the ageing process as much as possible.
