In case you didn’t know, there is a new home health care program that targets heart failure patients. At Progressive Home Health Agency, we’re happy to offer services like this one, from our heart to yours! Read on to learn more.
The American Heart Association remains dedicated to educating the public about cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, heart disease is still our nation’s top killer of both men and women. According to the CDC, roughly 85.6 million Americans live with cardiovascular diseases. An estimated 5.7 million suffer from heart failure in particular.
Progressive Home Health now provides a multidisciplinary program initiative in home health which currently involves heart failure patients. Our professional clinicians provide unique educational information and empowerment training to patients and their families. Our goal is to help patients better manage their condition at home, maintain wellness, and ultimately foster independence.
In this unique training process, patients are instructed, encouraged, and inspired to take on several responsibilities. As such, they set personal goals, monitor their weight, blood pressure, and symptoms, and document their progress in a personal journal. This checklist or journal helps patients better communicate with their physician during visits, or when necessary. In addition, patients and family members learn what to do when they see certain symptoms.
Overall, this innovative home health program for heart failure patients is certain to result in improved functional status, fewer hospital readmissions, and decreased physical symptoms. What we are most excited about with this program at Progressive Home Health, is that we’ll get to see patient success. This equates to extended life, a better quality of life, and long-term savings in healthcare costs.
This care program also incorporates advanced protocols for two additional diagnoses –
• AMI or (Acute Myocardial Infarction) and
• CABG, aka (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)
Here at Progressive Home Health, we’re all about helping patients avert major crises that result in hospitalization or loss of life. At the same time, we strive to help patients remain empowered to take the proper steps to manage through any episode with the help of our professional staff. Bringing about better outcomes through saving lives is what this program is all about.
