Experienced Care for Heart Attack Survivors
Having a heart attack and surviving is kind of like a warning sign that means dramatic lifestyle changes at home as a survivor need to be taken in order to prevent a second and not so forgiving heart attack. Heart attacks, also known as Myocardinal Infarction, occur when blood flow to a part of the heart muscle is deprived. There are five types of Heart Attack, but the most common occurs when plaque that has been building up in a coronary artery for a long time finally ruptures, which creates blood clotting and restricted blood flow to the heart.
Complications as a Heart Attack survivor may include aneurysm or rupture of the myocardium, mitral regurgitation, atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, heart failure, or a second heart attack.
If your Elderly or Senior loved one is back at home from the hospital after experiencing a heart attack, the caregivers at A-1 Home Care can help. We provide Heart Attack Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis. Our caregivers can assist with various personal care tasks, daily errands, healthy nutrition, exercise, and ensuring your loved one takes adheres to any medication therapy prescribed by the doctor such as Antiplatelet drug therapy, beta blocker therapy, or ACE Inhibitor therapy.
All of our Heart Attack caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
