Home Care Assistance Raises Awareness Around Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention in Observance of Heart Month

With a mission to change the way the world ages, Home Care Assistance, a provider of non-medical in-home care, shares educational resources to help individuals plan for an effective recovery at home following congestive heart failure, heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular condition.

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2015 - Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home care, is raising awareness around heart disease and stroke prevention in observance of Heart Month. Heart Disease is a leading cause of death and a major cause of disability. In fact, there is a heart-related fatality in America every minute. In Canada, heart disease and stroke are the leading cause of death for women and account for 33% of mortalities overall.

Approximately 20% of patients who are discharged from a hospital following congestive heart failure or heart attack are readmitted within 30 days. Many of these readmissions are caused by insufficient support in the home and a lack of information about post-hospitalization recovery. By providing patients with the resources they need to make appropriate care decisions, Home Care Assistance is changing how families across North America and Australia help their loved ones recover at home.

"Recovery from a cardiac event is a physically and emotionally draining experience for patients and their families," said Lily Sarafan, President of Home Care Assistance. "Our guide helps patients take the important steps to support recovery and rehabilitation while providing families with peace of mind and resources they can draw on in the community."

Home Care Assistance is proud to be a leading provider of education in the health and wellness industry; the company’s widely acclaimed senior wellness book series provides consumers with resources on healthly aging, dementia care, brain health and post-hospitalization care. Throughout February, individuals can request a complimentary copy of Home Care Assistance’s Patient Guides for Cardiac Rehabilitation and Post-Stroke Care from any local Home Care Assistance office or download a copy from the company’s website.
