Heart Disease 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.

"Recently I was in need of assistance going to St Mary’s Emergency Hospital. I made the right decision and called Right at Home. Based on my experience last September, immediately I was placed in the capable, competent, and caring hands of Charles. From start to finish some six hours, Charlie was constantly at my side, anticipating every need, and accommodating in every instance. I know could not have managed without him. I am more grateful than I am able to express. His calm, steady and knowledgeable presence was necessary and made my situation a pleasant experience as it could be. Charles is an “Old World Gentleman “ the type of person so very rare to see in today’s society. Such a person needs to be celebrated and I write this letter as a testimonial to him and Right at Home."

"I can’t say enough for the folks at Right at Home when I needed the services it provided most. They were the only agency to indicate immediate availability in providing care when my husband left the hospital and needed in-home care right away. I could not have managed without Michael, Greg and William for the two weeks they provided care for my husband and assistance to me. Each of them, in their own way, established a bond and trust relationship with my husband. Even though their time with him was unfortunately short. "...." "I would recommend this agency without equivocation to anyone seeking peace of mind and assistance with their loved ones who are not able to care for themselves."

"It is local. I met with several managers and franchise owners, and they were the most approachable. I like that it is small, which makes it personal. They have been good at following up with me. They have listened to what we have needed. The office has been able to do everything required of them. I appreciate that they listen."
