In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's not uncommon for individuals to overlook their health. Whether due to busy schedules or hesitancy to confront potential health issues, many would still postpone or avoid seeing a doctor. According to a survey conducted by a private intelligence agency in the Philippines from August 1 to 10, 2023, regarding the frequency of health checkups, it was found that 33% of respondents indicated that they seek medical attention "Only when feeling unwell," while over 15% responded with "Rarely" or "Never." As a friend or family member, you play an important role in encouraging your loved ones to prioritize their well-being.
With telehealth, making healthcare accessible and convenient is easier than ever. For example, anyone with a smartphone can simply download the free Doctor Anywhere app from the Google Play Store or App Store to consult a primary care doctor or specialists like dermatologists, pediatricians, and ob-gyns. So, here are other simple yet effective strategies to persuade your friends or family members to see a doctor anytime, anywhere!
1. Express your concerns with empathy
Start the conversation by expressing genuine concern for their well-being. Instead of lecturing or being confrontational, compassionately communicate your worries and make it clear that your concern comes from a place of love and care.
2. Share the facts!
Knowledge is empowering, and providing them with information and facts from trusted sources can motivate them to adopt a proactive approach to their well-being. For instance, sharing our blog articles can connect them with reliable health resources from Doctor Anywhere doctors and specialists. This way, they can make informed decisions instead of relying on uncertain information from a general internet search.
3. Show how telehealth makes healthcare convenient
One significant advantage of telehealth is its convenience. Demonstrate how easy it is to consult with a healthcare professional from the comfort of their own home. Stress the accessibility of virtual appointments, enabling them to prioritize their health without disrupting their busy schedules. And if you have personally used telehealth services, share your experience! Real-life success stories can alleviate any reservations they may have about telehealth and encourage them to give it a try.
4. Offer support throughout the process
Taking the first step toward prioritizing health can be intimidating. Offer your support by assisting with signing up for an account, appointment scheduling, or even participating in virtual appointments together. Knowing they have someone by their side can alleviate anxiety and make the process more manageable.
Encouraging your friends and family to prioritize their health is a meaningful effort with a lasting impact on their well-being. By approaching conversations with empathy, providing information, and offering support, you can be a key motivator in helping your loved ones take proactive steps toward better health.
