Heart Month and Home Health

Heart Month falls in February with all of the Valentine’s Day treats, but don’t let the pressure to get the perfect gift raise your blood pressure! While one holiday in February involves sweets and treats, the other recognizes healthy habits to prevent heart disease.


Heart Failure is a condition resulting from the heart’s inability to pump enough blood throughout the body. Treatment involves monitoring and self-care at home. Diet, exercise, and medication are the keys to success.


Home Health cares for many patients facing heart disease and heart failure. Our team has unique expertise to train, support, and help you manage your heart disease at home and keep you from going to the hospital with complications. We work closely with your doctor to create a plan of care to help you self-manage at home.


Our nurses have been trained in the signs and symptoms of heart failure disease processes and exacerbations. They will teach you about the disease process, and when to contact us to provide the best possible in-home care possible.
