Hypertension Stroke Care

Hypertension aka high blood pressure is a very common affliction for the elderly. It is often called a silent killer because you can have it for years without knowing it. In fact, about 50 million Americans have high blood pressure, but about 30 percent of them don't know it.

The best strategy for controlling and preventing high blood pressure is to begin with lifestyle changes. For the elderly this is often coupled with medication to reduce high blood pressure. Complications from medication can include inflamed and sore joints which reduce mobility. Right at Home’s specialty home care services can prepare a customized hypertension program that caters to your needs for striving toward a healthier lifestyle. These services include:

  • Develop a light exercise schedule
  • Coordinate a healthy meal plan

To this point I have recovered nicely. Without their great care I would not have been so fortunate. You are on the top of my list for any further care I might need in the future."
