Home Care Assistance Recognizes Heart Month

Scottsdale senior care company provides educational resources to help individuals plan for an effective recovery at home following congestive heart failure, heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular condition.

Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) February 20, 2014

Home Care Assistance of Scottsdale, a leading provider of in-home care, is raising awareness about heart disease and stroke- prevention in observance of Heart Month. Heart Disease is a leading cause of death and a major cause of disability. In fact, there is a heart-related fatality in America every minute.

“Our Scottsdale office is excited to offer this important information to the community,” said Ted Holmgren, General Manager and Co-Owner of Home Care Assistance of Scottsdale. “We would like for everyone to be proactive about heart health, and to also understand their options if they are ever affected by a cardiac or vascular event.”

Home Care Assistance is proud to be a leading provider of health and wellness education for the Scottsdale community. The company’s acclaimed senior wellness book series provides consumers with information on healthy aging, family caregiving and post-hospitalization care. Throughout February, consumers can request a complimentary copy of Home Care Assistance's Patient Guide for Cardiac Rehabilitation from the Scottsdale office.

“Recovery from a cardiac event is a physically and emotionally draining experience for patients and their families,” said Lily Sarafan, President of Home Care Assistance. “Our guide helps patients take the important steps to support recovery and rehabilitation while providing families with peace of mind and resources they can draw on in the community."

Approximately 20% of patients who are discharged from a hospital following congestive heart failure or heart attack are readmitted within 30 days. Many of these readmissions are caused by insufficient support in the home and a lack of information about post-hospitalization recovery. By providing patients with the resources they need to make appropriate care decisions, Home Care Assistance is changing how families across North America help their loved ones recover at home.
