Heart disease kills an estimated 630,000 Americans each year. It’s the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its affects, Heart ‘n Home Hospice & Palliative Care is proudly raising heart awareness.
In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to a heart attack. You can greatly reduce your risk for CAD through lifestyle changes and in some cases, medication.
If you or a loved one needs extra support and are dealing with end-of-life cardiac disease, please contact Heart ‘n Home today at 1-800-HOSPICE. We can help with patient/caregiver ability to manage illness at home; confidence of patient/caregiver to manage symptoms; specific cardiac plan of care that manages symptoms and reduces episodes of crisis; and reducing emergency room and hospital visits.
National Heart Month helps remind us all to be heart healthy in everything we do.
