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 the first Tuesday of every month from 10 to 11 a.m., at the Rhine Haus CBRF, 1207 Mason St. in Rhinelander.
No appointment is necessary, and there is no cost.
For more information, call Ministry Home Care at 800-643-4663.
