Hypertension Stroke

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.

"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)."
