What Does it Mean for Your Loved One with Heart Disease to Adopt a Healthier Lifestyle?



Homecare in Mesa AZFor your loved one, a diagnosis of heart disease often means that she has to make some changes to how she goes through her day. Some of those changes might be demanding of her, but that doesn't mean they aren't possible.

Quit Smoking or Using Tobacco

One of the biggest changes that your loved one might need to make is to quit smoking or using other products involving tobacco. This can be really difficult, especially if your loved one has been a smoker for a long time. Talk to your loved one's doctor about what your loved one can do to make quitting easier on her.

Pay Attention to Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, and Cholesterol

Blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol are three really important factors in helping your loved one to manage her heart disease. Talk to your loved one's doctor about what the optimal levels are for each of these tests. If your loved one has issues with any of these health measurements, her doctor may have a specific treatment plan in mind for her.

Make Some Dietary Changes

Your loved one's diet is incredibly important because what she puts into her body is what fuels it. If your loved one is eating a lot of processed foods with too much salt and sugar, it's going to be difficult to keep metrics such as her blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar under control. Make menus, shop wisely, and get some extra help from people like home care providers to make meal preparation much easier for both you and your loved one.

Get More Physical Activity

After getting her doctor's okay, your loved one would benefit greatly from starting to exercise regularly. Your loved one doesn't need to exercise to the point of exhaustion every day, but consistent movement each day can help to strengthen her heart and her lungs. Check in with her doctor periodically to make sure that she's still okay to exercise.

Many of these changes sound easier on paper than they are for your loved one to put into practice. Make sure you let your loved one know that even small changes can help.

Mike Endredy, Owner
Mike has been involved with home care for the last 11 years as the owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of the East Valley (Phoenix AZ). 
Mike was brought to the home care industry like many folks through a need to care for my father near the end of his life. 
"Although my mother was the primary caregiver there was not a service to use that can offer relief for my mother and from 2,000 miles away I was not able to provide the care personally he needed.  It was however, a few years after my father's passing that I personally decided to change careers, leaving a career in engineering.  I have never looked back.  Making a difference in people's lives changes you more profoundly than anything and I love that experience.  In the eleven years of making a difference my exceptional team of caregivers and staff have made a difference through providing over 2 million hours worth of care.  This journey is just beginning.  Making a difference in somebody's life or a family members life is why I do what I do.  The hurdles, the heartbreak and the pain that comes makes me stronger and more determined to help another. " - Mike Endredy
