Treatment Can Improve Quality of Life

Many heart conditions can improve with proper medical care and rehabilitation services. HealthNow Home Healthcare works with physicians to develop a plan that benefits the patient and takes the burden or recovery off of family members. Coronary heart disease is one example of a heart problem that can be treated through lifestyle changes.

Heart failure is when the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body. It is caused by high blood pressure, coronary heart disease or blood vessel blockage. Advanced congestive heart failure can cause serious illness, but there are also periods of stability. Some patients may not recover to previous levels of functioning after their illness.
