Heart Attack Care in Brea, CA

Caregivers for Heart Attack Survivors

Heart attacks are a leading killer of both men and women in the United States affecting nearly 1 million people each year. Most heart attacks occur in people who are smokers, who are obese, have high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, follow an unhealthy diet, or don’t exercise enough.

After a heart attack, the heart becomes significantly weaker as damaged heart tissue becomes scarred and leads to weaker pumping ability. Complications such as heart failure and arrhythmias can be avoided if your loved one starts to lead a healthy lifestyle that includes taking any prescribed medication, eating a heart-healthy diet, and exercising as much as possible.

At A-1 Home Care Agency, we want to help your Elderly or Senior loved one recover from a heart attack as quickly as possible. We provide experienced and compassionate caregivers for Heart Attack Care in Brea, CA.

As your loved one is still recovering, we can provide assistance with any activities of daily living they might need. Some tasks that we can assist with include medication reminders, cooking healthy meals, mobility assistance, exercise, running errands, transportation into town, and assistance with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, or toileting.

All of our in-home caregivers are available for 24 hour or hourly care and must have at least 2 years of prior caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

Call us at 562-929-8400 OR 949-650-3800 to interview a caregiver in your area today.

WHAT IS A HEART ATTACK:

Heart attacks, also known as Myocardial Infarctions, occur most commonly when the hardened plaque buildup in the wall of a coronary artery ruptures, creating a blood clot that impairs blood flow to the heart that damages or kills parts of the heart muscle of the artery. Old age, lifestyle choices such as smoking, and pre-existing medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure or obesity are high risk factors for heart attack.
