Heart failure is a condition resulting from the heart’s inability to pump enough blood throughout the body. Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is one type of heart failure which occurs when fluid builds up in the extremities, lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract and other organs, causing the blood to become “congested”.
It is only natural for someone who has or is experiencing symptoms of heart failure to have some anxiety about it. Many working to manage heart failure symptoms find it difficult to adhere to the treatment plan provided to them. Such plans will no doubt include certain diet, exercise and medication regimens that are not only the keys to success but can decrease the need for hospitalization and lower the risk of death.
Among the many benefits of referring the heart failure patient to Servicing Seniors are improved patient education, increased adherence to treatment plan, earlier intervention due to sign and symptom management, fall risk identification and reduction, reduced need for ER or urgent visits, and support/encouragement to help relieve the patient’s anxiety.
Most seniors can live independent lives for quite some time with just minor assistance. Family and friends cannot always be there to help with daily tasks, but Serving Seniors can help fill the need for transportation, errands, housekeeping, and more. Just a few hours a week can enhance your senior’s independence, happiness and overall quality of life.
Joan assists concerned families seeking a trained caregiver who will treat their loved ones with dignity, respect and compassion. Serving Seniors provides the highest level in-home non-medical care and companionship. Families and seniors can be assured of friendly, personalized service from dedicated, compassionate caregivers.
