Heart Failure

Heart Failure is a common condition among the senior population and those seniors who live in the Bay Area are no different. Heart failure is a chronic disease where the heart muscle does not pump blood as well as it should, struggling to pump blood out of the heart or sometime failing to fill the heart properly with blood. When diagnosed with heart failure many seniors will experience symptoms that can lead to additional challenges that would require some additional in-home assistance. We at Polaris Home Care are committed to helping our clients with heart failure to maintain the highest level of independence and activity within the community.

When diagnosed with heart failure many patients will experience a variety of symptoms that can lead to more health problems and potentially dangerous situations. Some symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath, weakness and fatigue, irregular heartbeat, nausea and chest pain; some of these symptoms can potentially endanger the patient. Adding additional in-home care such as a caregiver from Polaris Home Care can help those living with heart failure to maintain high levels of activity and more importantly, safety.

Polaris Home Care employees undergo rigorous training in a variety of conditions to be able to provide the most appropriate type of care required by each client. For those who have been diagnosed with heart failure, our caregivers can assist those clients with around the clock care. In-home care professionals are able to provide our clients with any and all services they may need as they live with heart failure. The benefit of having a caregiver in the home is that there is someone with the patient every day or at least multiple times a week to monitor and work with the client between doctor visits. Our caregivers understand that their ultimate goal is to keep our clients safe above all else, having the ability to monitor the client within their home in their day to day lives is crucial to being able to minimize hospital readmissions.
