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.

How Assisted Supports CHF

Home Health

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.

Hospice Care

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.

Caregiver Services

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.

  • Don’t smoke: Smoking damages the heart and blood vessels, increasing the risk of CHF.
  • Eat a healthy diet: A diet that is low in salt and high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help lower the risk of CHF.
  • Be active: Regular physical activity can help improve heart health and reduce the risk of CHF. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.
  • Watch your cholesterol: Strive for total cholesterol of less than 200mg/dl.
  • Maintain a healthy weight: Target a body mass index (BMI) of 25% or less.
  • Manage underlying conditions: Conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary artery disease can increase the risk of CHF. It is important to manage these conditions through a combination of lifestyle changes and medication.
