Heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure or CHF, is a serious condition in which the heart cannot pump sufficient blood and oxygen to meet the body’s needs. Various factors, including high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and diabetes, can cause it. As a result, people with CHF may experience shortness of breath, fatigue, and swelling in the legs and ankles, and they may be at an increased risk of hospitalization and death.
Assisted Home Health Nurses will instruct and educate newly diagnosed CHF patients and their families on signs, changes in condition, and self-management. Assisted nurses can help physicians by identifying red flags and reducing hospital readmissions.
End-stage CHF patients often make frequent trips to the hospital for breathing difficulty and fatigue. Many of these visits could be avoided with the help of Assisted Hospice Care. Our Hospice team provides an added level of support for cardiac patients to control CHF symptoms at home.
Patients with CHF often need help with daily tasks such as getting dressed, preparing food, and other activities of daily living. Assisted Caregiver Services can step in to ease the burden of daily tasks for patients and their families.
