High blood pressure cannot be cured, but it can be controlled in most cases. The treatment for high blood pressure must be tailored to the specific needs of the individual, as guided by their doctor. Detecting it is the first step.
Ministry Home Care provides free blood pressure checks every month as follows: the first Tuesday from 10-11a.m. at the Rhine Haus CBRF, 1207 Mason Street; the first and second Mondays, 3-5 p.m., at the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry, 436 N. Brown Street.
No appointment is necessary, and there is no cost.
For more information, call Ministry Home Care at (800) 643-4663.
