There are millions of Americans caring for someone with heart disease, including many in our local community. A lot of attention is often paid to reducing stress in a heart disease patient; however, it is often overlooked that a caregiver’s stress can cause his or her own blood pressure to rise. To keep a caregiver’s stress levels and blood pressure under control, it is important to keep a positive attitude and accept that some events are beyond one’s control. Family caregivers should not be afraid to set limits appropriately and say no to requests that would cause excessive stress.
That’s why we take pride in offering the best care to our clients in the comfort of their own homes. In addition to providing assistance with meal preparation, transportation to doctors’ visits, appointments, and with activities of daily living (ADLs), our caregivers can provide one-on-one assistance to:
- Increase client compliance with dietary or lifestyle changes
- Supervise prescribed exercise and physical therapy activities
All our accredited caregivers have been trained in both First Aid and CPR. Call us today at 907-274-5620, or email us for more information about our services in Anchorage or to schedule a free in-home assessment.
