Goal of Men’s Health Month

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.

Client Testimonials

"Everybody at Aspire was outstanding and we love each and every one of them. Melissa with Aspire even spent time with my friend while she was in the hospital. No words can express how much they love her and her loving them.”


"All of you at Aspire have been so good to me that words can’t express what it means to be under your care. It is a comfort and a blessing that helps our nights and days to be peaceful and pleasant. Thank you so much for your cheerfulness and encouragement.”


"All the Aspire nurses on our Hospice Team, led by Michelle, gave my husband exceptional care. They were a great comfort to both of us and were ever ready to bring whatever medication and medical supplies we needed. They had to brave the snowy, rainy winter weather and deplorable condition of our dirt roads. I commend them all on their professionalism, dedication and their quick responses to my emergency calls. I really don’t know how I could have managed without them. God bless them all.”


"Susan was the Aspire LPN who took care of our mother. She always treated our mother with love and respect and always took time to make our mother feel like she was Susan’s only patient. Carolyn was mother’s aide, and she treated her with the same love, respect, and dignity. We love and appreciate each of our mother’s caregivers and are grateful for the help we received from Aspire.”


"Thank you to Aspire for everything you have done. Your kindness and concern is great. This is the best home health I have ever used. Thanks for taking your time with me."
