Calgary, AB (PRWEB) February 14, 2014 - Home Care Assistance Calgary, 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.
Home Care Assistance is proud to be a leading provider of consumer education in the health and wellness industry; our acclaimed senior wellness book series provides consumers with resources on health aging, family caregiving and post-hospitalization care. Throughout February, consumers can request a complimentary copy of Home Care Assistance's Patient Guide for Cardiac Rehabilitation from any local Home Care Assistance office or download a copy from the company’s website.
"It takes about four to six weeks for the heart to heal following a heart attack," said Mark Brodie, owner of Home Care Assistance Calgary. "Our caregivers are specially trained to care for those who have suffered from a stroke or heart attack and ensure they recover as quickly as possible in the comfort of home."
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 help their loved ones recover at home.
