Heart Attack Care
Elderly Care for Those Who Have Suffered Myocardial Infarctions
Heart attacks, also known as Myocardial Infarctions, occur most commonly when the hardened plaque buildup in the wall of a coronary artery ruptures, creating a blood clot that impairs blood flow to the heart that damages or kills parts of the heart muscle of the artery. Old age, lifestyle choices such as smoking, and pre-existing medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure or obesity are high risk factors for heart attack.
When someone you love has had a heart attack, the risk of a second heart attack is greater because myocardial scarring of the heart muscle makes the heart permanently weaker. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle, stopping bad habits and taking prescribed long term medication can decrease risk.
A-1 Home Care Agency is a non-medical homecare agency that specializes in compassionate Heart Attack Care for Elderly and Senior survivors. We can provide in-home care on a 24-Hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis and assist with tasks such as monitoring your loved one’s blood sugar or blood pressure before and after meals, assisting with daily exercise, and taking prescribed medications such as Aspirin, Metoprolol, or Spironolactone.
