Advanced Healthcare Solutions Promotes February as Heart Disease Awareness Month
Advanced Healthcare Solutions, a consortium of 46 skilled nursing facilities in Texas, recognizes that heart disease, commonly referred to as Coronary Artery Disease, afflicts millions of elderly residents in nursing homes everywhere.
A National Survey from the Center for Disease Control showed that greater than 42 percent of all nursing homes residents have previously been diagnosed with heart disease. Senior citizens are particularly susceptible to stroke and heart attacks, so it is imperative for them to learn how to control the major risk factors of heart disease with proper nutrition, weight management, and regular exercise or a general healthy lifestyle.
The staff at Advanced Healthcare Solutions are particularly careful to maintain the right living balance to help combat heart disease including delicious yet nutritious meals prepared in-house for all residents, regular cardiovascular exercise for all residents and creating a friendly, non-stressful living environment.
Awareness of risk factors and symptoms as well as early detection is the most common way to combat heart disease, but for too many elderly, heart disease is already a very real and scary part of their lives. The American Heart Association has published great information on understanding and managing heart disease on their website www.heart.org.
