Caring for People with Congestive Heart Failure: Jersey Shore Adult Day Health Care Center Can Help Your Loved Ones Deal with the Symptoms of the Disease
Congestive heart failure is a type of heart disease where the heart’s ability to pump blood begins to fail. Symptoms of hypertension include fatigue, shortness of breath, and swelling. Treatment for congestive heart failure can vary, and some treatment approaches may be ruled out in seniors or those with other serious health conditions.
Helping people with congestive heart failure depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the disease and the treatment approach taken. A complicating factor is that patients with underlying heart disease may be at higher risk of congestive heart failure, which can be exacerbated by some common medications used to treat heart disease.
What is the right approach to helping someone with congestive heart failure? There is no one-size-fits-all approach to this disease. Instead, because each patient’s prognosis is very individualized, it is important that treatment modalities focus on patient-centered care developed with a healthcare team.
At Jersey Shore Adult Health Care Center, we can work with a healthcare team to develop the right approach to caring for a patient with congestive heart failure. A comprehensive plan is important because, as the severity of congestive heart failure increases, so do the limitations on activity and other important lifestyle modifications.
