Post-Heart Attack Care for Seniors in Anaheim Hills

cancer careDid you know that one in five heart attacks is silent?  The most common cause of heart attacks is coronary artery disease (CAD), which occurs when arteries can no longer transport enough blood to the heart due to narrowed and hardened blood vessels.  Because heart attacks can be silent, it’s important to know the true condition of your cardiovascular health so you may be aware of the signs if you are having a heart attack.  Otherwise, if you wait too long, you may be doing irreparable damage to your heart muscles.  Many families find it helpful to have a trained live-in caregiver around to look for signs of a heart attack in their elderly loved onesA-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills will step right in for you while you’re away at work.

Anaheim Hills Heart Attack Care

????????????????????????????????????????Heart attacks and Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) are normally associated with seniors, but according to a recent article in Harvard Health Publications (2009), about 10% of heart attacks occur in men as young as 45. Lifestyle habits play a huge influencing role in the occurrence of heart attacks. Smoking half a pack of cigarettes a day increases the chances of heart attack by 50%. An “age”-old problem is becoming a “pediatric” problem, as evidenced by the examination of over 700 deceased teens and young adults in a research study just last year.

As myocardial infarction becomes more common, it’s important to know the symptoms if you are having a heart attack. Look for signs of shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, dizziness, discomfort in other areas of your upper body, and cold sweat. These symptoms persist for more than 30 minutes. After your first heart attack, repeat heart attacks are likely to occur if you don’t change your diet or lifestyle habits.

Life after a heart attack can be made easier with a companion by your side. No doubt, lifestyle habits are hard to break if you are trying to recover from a heart attack, especially after hospitalization. Home care agencies such as A-1 Home Care offer help with daily chores, transportation and personal care. They can be a great team player if you have a medical team of doctors and nurses who are helping you in your cardiac rehabilitation.
