We’re open, but Covid-19 safety protocol applies. View our Covid-19 protocols.



Leading a healthy lifestyle takes goal setting and motivation. After having a heart attack, it can be difficult for an Elderly or Senior loved one to find the motivation to stay healthy – especially under the circumstances of living at home alone.

A heart attack, also known as myocardial infarction most commonly occurs when plaque in a coronary artery hardens and ruptures, causing immediate blood clotting of the area and blockage of blood to a part of the heart muscle. This deprival of oxygen-rich blood causes permanent damage to the heart that must be treated immediately.

When healthy heart tissue becomes scar tissue, the heart’s ability to pump blood is lessened. Complications such as irregular heartbeats, angina, and pre-existing coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol require medications that must be taken. Lifestyle changes that benefit overall health such as eating a healthy diet, exercising, and quitting smoking must come into play.

At A-1 Home Care, we understand what an undertaking it would be for an Elderly or Senior loved one to completely change their lifestyle on their
own. We provide experienced and compassionate caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home health aides who specialize in Heart Attack Care.

Our in-home caregivers can provide assistance with medication compliance, heart-healthy meal preparation, exercise, transportation to doctor appointments or rehabilitation sessions, and anything else they may need.

Having someone who can not only provide care, but be a source of companionship and support could make all the difference when it comes to motivating your loved one to strive for a healthy heart.


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.


We match your loved one with a compassionate and experienced Heart Attack Caregiver, Nurse Aide, Companion, Personal Care Attendant or Home Health Aide.

Having a professional care provider will speed your beloved family member’s recovery time after a heart attack and reduce the chances of a second.
