Homecare Assistance & Heart Attacks in Milwaukee, WI

See how homecare assistance services can benefit your loved one after they have suffered a heart attack

Surviving a heart attack is a feat in and of itself; but living well afterwards is another challenge entirely. Comfort Keepers will ensure you don’t just survive following a heart attack, you’ll thrive.

Homecare assistance services for seniors with heart disease

Heart attacks occur when the heart doesn’t receive enough blood and stops working. Heart attacks are traumatic both physically and emotionally. Returning home from the hospital without homecare assistance is challenging for the body and mind to handle. Individuals who have had a heart attack often struggle to adjust to a newly found shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, and the increased risk of another heart attack.

Each of these conditions presents a new set of challenges, but you don’t need to face them alone with the help of a Comfort Keeper who understands the complications of myocardial infarction.

NOTE: If you suspect a loved one is having a heart attack get to a hospital immediately.

Comfort Keepers are specifically trained to provide specialized homecare assistance services in the event of heart attacks or other unique illnesses and conditions.

Heart Attack Facts

A heart attack occurs when an artery leading to the heart becomes blocked, starving the heart of blood and oxygen. Heart cells can die when they do not receive enough oxygen. Time is critical when having a heart attack; a staggering 95% of all heart attack victims (even those who have had several heart attacks) survive if they make it to a hospital on time.

Damaged or clogged arteries increase the risk of heart attacks. While doctors are unsure what exactly damages arteries, factors like high blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking have shown to be a contributing factor.

Men are more likely to have a heart attack than women, and lifestyle (poor diet, lack of exercise, and high stress) has shown to increase the risk of heart attacks. Heart attack victims, and those at risk for heart attacks, should take aspirin. Aspirin helps stop blood from clotting, lowering the risk of clogged arteries.

Thriving After a Heart Attack With Homecare Assistance

Heart attack victims often struggle to adjust to the new normal once they return home from the hospital. Individuals often have trouble trying to quit smoking, adjusting to a new diet, staying active, or even moving around the house. Staying healthy is hard, especially when you don’t have help.

Comfort Keepers homecare assistance can help you adjust to your new life, ensuring you will thrive and live the best life possible. Whether you need help staying active, following a new diet, or basic self-care you can rely on our trained in-home caregivers. Comfort Keepers can prepare healthy meals for your new diet, help you stay fit, or assist with activities of daily living like bathing.

Your Life Isn’t Over

You survived a heart attack, this doesn’t mean your life is over. You don’t need to give up what you love or lose the quality of your life. A new lifestyle might seem challenging, but you don’t need to do it alone. You can trust a Comfort Keeper to prepare healthy meals, provide medication reminders, and help you stay active. Most importantly, a Comfort Keeper gives you the peace of mind knowing if another heart attack strikes, you or your loved one won’t be alone.
