Think having a family doctor just means a familiar face when you’re feeling unwell? Think again.

Research shows those with a family doctor don’t just receive better care, but live longer with better health, ultimately reducing hospital admissions and visits to the emergency room.

Studies even show the better the relationship with your family doctor, the better the health outcomes.

Here are some other benefits of having a family doctor:

  • preventative care and disease management
  • more support to achieve your personal health goals
  • access to a team of health professionals, free programs and services through Alberta PCNs

As temperatures rise over the summer, it is crucial for your health and well-being to stay hydrated. Here are some tips to keep refreshed and hydrated for the rest of summer:

💧 Keep it in reach: Make water your go-to beverage when you’re out or carry your favorite reusable water bottle with you to stay hydrated on the go.

🥥 Try coconut water: Quench your thirst with coconut water! Packed with natural electrolytes, coconut water is a great alternative to sugary sports drinks.

🍉Eat water-rich foods: Snack on juicy watermelon, cucumbers, or strawberries. Foods with a naturally high-water content will help boost your hydration levels.

Beat the heat! ☀ Make sure to exercise caution during the hot summer months to avoid heatstroke and other heat-related illnesses. If you notice feelings of confusion, profuse sweating, trouble breathing or skin that is red, hot and dry – you may be experiencing heat exhaustion or heatstroke.

When recognized in the early stages, mild heat exhaustion can be treated at home.

Take action:
🌡 Stop activity

🌡 Get out of direct sunlight

🌡 Drink water, juice or rehydration liquids

🌡 Cool down by applying cool compresses

🌡 Rest until you feel better
