In home cardiac rehab is personalized and geared for full recovery. If you or someone you love are recovering from a cardiac procedure like an angioplasty and stent placement, you know how important it is to recover in the comfort of your own home. Cardiac rehab is an important part of the heart health recovery puzzle.
Cardiac Rehab in Your Home
Evidence shows that home rehab works wonders, when working with a doctor who has coordinated an overall treatment plan to pave the quickest road to recovery. It is reassuring to families and loved ones to know the patient is in good hands and will quickly transition to resume regular activities in a timely manner.
Cardiac rehab covers a huge spectrum, exercise, food, stress levels and any other lifestyle choices that can disrupt the path to a healthier future. It takes a strong team effort of in-home specialists that will help with specific exercises targeted to make the heart healthier. They will work as a team together to help the patient understand the medication prescribed and how to properly take it. A big plus is that they are in a position to help each individual deal honestly with a stressful health event.
Education that focuses on meds, foods and how to achieve a healthier lifestyle, are an important step to self-care. Because it is important to recover at home, education is a big factor. Together knowledge and self-care often results in fewer hospital visits and a better outcome in the long run. In home caregivers are able to assist in locating community services that would be supportive for future needs. Counseling can help comfort, and guide the patient towards a healthier mental outlook.
In home care also provides skilled nurses who can collect vitals, such as blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels. They can assess the diet and track the speed of recovery.
