One of the first things that CHF sufferers and their families in the St. Louis area need to know is that the term “congestive heart failure” suggests that the heart has stopped working but that is not entirely accurate. As a chronic disease condition, CHF refers to the heart not being able to pump with enough efficiency to meet the body’s needs. With certain lifestyle changes and proper treatment, seniors with CHF can lead active lives for many years and the care team at Amada St. Louis is here to offer personalized options for long-term CHF care for senior CHF clients in Clayton, Ladue, Kirkwood, Town & Country, Webster Groves, and surrounding St. Louis communities.
A senior loved one living with CHF may experience fatigue, breathlessness, fluid and water retention (oedema), pain and other symptoms. With their training and experience, Amada caregivers can offer support in helping senior CHF clients manage their symptoms while communicating to them about their care preferences.
