Heart Attack Care in Whittier, CA
Kindhearted Caregivers that Specialize in Heart Failure
When blood supply to any part of the heart muscle is interrupted, Myocardial Infarction, better known as heart attack, occurs because heart cells are damaged or destroyed. Individuals who experience heart attack may feel the gradual onset of symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, light-headedness, and in extreme cases, sudden death, however many Elderly individuals may experience no chest pain or symptoms at all.
After a heart attack, the survivor must take proactive measures to prevent a second heart attack from occurring. Heart attacks are oftentimes the product of previous medical conditions or lifestyle choices such as Diabetes, Hypertension, heart disease, obesity, and lack of exercise. The heart muscle may be permanently damaged, making it weaker and making the heart conduct electrical impulses slower, bringing on the risk of even more complications such as lethal ventricular fibrillation.
If your Elderly or Senior loved one has had a heart attack and you’re worried about their day to day well-being, A-1 Home Care can help by providing a compassionate caregiver for Heart Attack Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.
