Heart Disease Prevention Care

In-Home Care Services Specialized for Seniors with Heart Conditions

Arteriosclerosis or “hardening of the arteries” occurs when the inside walls of an artery become thicker and less elastic. The thickening reduces the area available for blood flow. Although arteriosclerosis reveals few symptoms at first, as plaque grows, it narrows the artery and in some cases blocks it entirely. This can lead to angina and heart attacks.

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is often encountered in the elder care field. It occurs when the heart cannot pump out enough blood to meet the needs of the body. All forms of heart disease may eventually lead to CHF. CHF is the most common cause of death for people over the age of 65. Approximately 75% of our clients are over the age of 65, making this disease very important in the senior health care arena.

"My dad is a current client and he has the best time with his caregiver. Trina and her staff make my dad feel as if he is in their family. They help him do everything he can't do for himself. They cook, clean, shop, help him with personal care and provide companionship to him every day. I feel at ease knowing he is not alone. Call them if you need care for yourself or a loved one, you'll be glad you did!"

"Mary Jane was very good with Robert. He always waited for her when it was her day and time. He would listen to her directions for his care. I wish I'd known of your services sooner. Thank you again. I would recommend you services to anyone."

"Right at Home has a wonderful service. When my mother-in law needed assistance with her apartment, laundry, and every moving, the care that your aides provided was invaluable. Due to hectic work and daycare schedules, we were not always available to help. It was nice knowing that her needs were met. Then our visits could be just that, visits (without all the housework)."
