Whether you or a loved one is recovering from cardiac surgery, living with heart failure, or has chronic high blood pressure, there comes a time when additional care is needed to continue maintaining a healthy and safe lifestyle with cardiac conditions.
The trained team at Nursing Plus of Broward is here to relieve additional stress you and your loved ones might be going through, which commonly impacts seniors with cardiac conditions. Stress is a significant factor in both causing and complicating Heart Disease. Our skilled team is able to help reduce some of this stress by assisting with medication and disease management, assisting with a healthy exercise and rehabilitation program, and assisting with activities of daily living, such as personal hygiene.
Cardiac Conditions affect the structures or functions of the heart. Many Cardiac Conditions require skilled medical assistance and what better way to receive care than in the comfort of your own home?
The following are heart conditions that include diseased vessels, structural problems, and blood clots:
Lifestyle choices, family predispositions, a congenital cardiac condition, or even aging can all influence the experiences of seniors with cardiac conditions. Our Skilled Nurses can ameliorate cardiac challenges with educating on your Cardiac Disease and a heart-healthy diet, providing exercise instruction, stress management and coordinated medical care program. Attentive care and monitoring in addition to educational instruction is essential in attaining a better quality of life for seniors with cardiac conditions.
Post-operative care for most heart surgeries is essential for a successful recovery as well as relapse and infection prevention. Our Skilled Nursing professionals bring the necessary hospital-level care to you and your loved ones in their home. These surgeries include:
Our Skilled Nurses can assist with medication management in the comfort of your or your loved one’s home. To live a healthy and safe lifestyle, our Skilled Nurses can administer and monitor medications to prevent any medication-related health risks.
Our Skilled Nurses can instruct on a wide array of medications specific to each Cardiac Condition which may include:
Our Physical and Occupational Therapists are available to help you or your loved one build both heart and overall strength with exercises and training. In addition, our Therapists will be able to assess your or your loved ones environment and offer suggestions that they feel will positively impact their safety and well being. Engaging in physical activities has a palliative effect on cardiac health and has a beneficial effect in maintaining your ability to do things and remain safely in your home.
Heart Failure is a chronic condition that occurs when the heart is not able to pump enough blood to keep the blood flow circulating throughout the body. The constant delivery of nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to the rest of your body, and the removal of the carbon dioxide-laden blood to be filtered by the lungs needs steady continuous blood flow. When the heart cannot maintain the necessary blood flow level, the body’s systems suffers.
For the heart to function properly, all its parts have to function properly, from the veins that feed the blood supply to the heart, to the arteries that take it away, to its valves that need to open and shut properly, to its chambers that need enough strength and elasticity to pump and keep the blood flowing.
What can begin as a minor health problem can later lead to a significant problem – Heart Failure. Our experienced and compassionate nurses can assist with an assessment of risk factors and also introduce you and your loved one to new healthy lifestyle changes.
Living with Heart Failure is a frequent challenge for our seniors, and we, at Nursing Plus of Broward, have the experience and commitment to help you and your loved one meet that challenge.
As we get older, our hearts are more vulnerable to the many risk factors that can impact our heart health. An attentive and professional approach of our Skilled Nursing and Therapy staff can help prevent or ameliorate the risk of complications from concurrent medical conditions, accustomed lifestyle choices, and unanticipated acute events. Also, our Home Health Aide providers can be a part of you and your loved one’s extended care community by being an additional health monitor, while helping with daily living needs.
Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a common condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high, causing more health problems, such as cardiac diseases.
There are two types of hypertension:
Seniors are at greater risk for Hypertension due to the gradual buildup of plaque in the arteries which narrows them, making it harder for blood to flow through and increasing blood pressure over time.
Since hypertension is the primary cause of Heart Disease, including Stroke, Heart Failure, and Aneurysm, it is a condition that should be treated with a multifaceted approach. Our Skilled Nursing and Physical and Occupational Therapists, are available to work with you and your family to design a customized treatment plan that will improve overall health and quality of life.
We want to ensure we are helping in every way possible, providing peace of mind and effective care services in the comfort of you and your loved ones home.
