Helping Seniors Manage Symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
Diet, lifestyle and/or hereditary issues are all factors in the age-related occurence of coronary artery disease which can slowly develop into congestive heart failure (CHF). Amada Long Beach caregivers have the training and experience to help seniors manage CHF symptoms. They follow each senior client’s personalized care plan, adhering to instructions put forth by the healthcare professional. They can help seniors diagnosed with CHF to keep up on their prescribed medication reminders, prepare food according to dietary guidelines and encourage and support the right level of exercise or activity — all to support senior clients as they manage CHF symptoms.
Supporting Aging Loved Ones Diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
There are many conditions under the COPD umbrella, including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and refractory asthma. Adults and seniors diagnosed with COPD may experience such symptoms as breathlessness, frequent coughing, and severe wheezing. Plus, they often battle chest infections. Being that COPD can greatly impact quality of life, many seniors with COPD can also experience anxiety and depression. While there is no cure, many senior COPD patients receive treatment or participate in physical therapy designed to improve breathing. When a senior you love needs assistance at home with managing COPD symptoms, count on Amada Long Beach to provide a trained caregiver who can support your senior loved one’s efforts.
