With the start of a new year, comes the opportunity for healthy choices and resolutions to take better care for ourselves and our loved ones. Keeping the heart healthy is one of the keys to a long and healthy life.

Here are 5 tips to help prevent heart disease:
1-Don’t Smoke or Use Tobacco
2-Exercise for 30 Minutes Every Day
3-Eat a Heart-Healthy Diet
4-Maintain a Healthy Weight
5-Get Regular Heart Health Screenings

Our team at Crittenton Home Care has several options for helping you maintain a healthy heart at any age.Through our Cardiac Program, we offer education to both the patient and family members on the essentials of controlling heart disease. Our aides and nurses can assist with assessment and treatment, in-home medication monitoring and consistent communication with your physicians on changes in condition.

Crittenton Hospital Medical Center’s Cardiovascular Program is also a vital part of education, healing and support. The Crittenton team includes nationally recognized cardiac physicians and has been ranked top 10% for Cardiac Hospitals in the United States. For additional information on Heart Health, join Crittenton in February for Dinner with a Doc featuring Dr. Mahjoub as he talks about the Advances in Management of Heart Attack.

Another part of the Crittenton team’s initiative to help with heart health is our Heart Failure Patient Teaching Guide. This guide offers education on both rehabilitation and in-home care after heart failure and is given to patients during their stay at Crittenton Hospital Medical Center. The Heart Failure Guide is another aspect of the continuity of care offered when partnering with Crittenton Home Care for rehabilitation after a hospital stay. To request a copy of the Heart Failure Guide, contact us directly.
