In the United States, heart disease is the leading cause of death for women, according to Harvard Health Publications. Because women are less likely than men to seek medical attention for cardiac symptoms, they should be more attentive and knowledgeable of signs, such as dizziness, nausea, cold sweat, fatigue, and prolonged pain in the abdomen. There are a number of risk factors that you might recognize. Use of tobacco products, lack of physical exercise, consumption of foods high in cholesterol, family history of heart disease and obesity are all factors in a cardiac attack. If you have an elderly loved one at home with a history of heart disease, it is best to have a live-in caregiver present while you’re away at work, so you can prevent permanent damage as much as possible in the event of a heart attack.
Live-In Companion Care Can Change Everything
When you’re always at work, it’s hard to monitor day-to-day changes in your elderly loved one’s health changes. For one, you may not have received formal medical training if you have never worked in the health care field. Secondly, you may be too tired to notice anything when you come home from work because you have other things occupying your mind. A-1 Home Care will take a load off your shoulders by providing assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, bathing, grooming, medication reminders, and exercise. Live-in and live-out in-home care services are available in Burbank and all over LA County.
