Cardiac Home Care Services
In-home part-time and live-in support for heart attack and cardiac surgery recovery, congestive heart failure (CHF), and other chronic cardiac diseases.
If a parent or other loved one is recovering at home from heart attack or cardiac surgery or living with congestive heart failure (CHF) or other chronic heart disease, Senior Nannies can connect you with prescreened, reliable cardiac home caregivers who understand the special challenges posed by heart disease. Our cardiac home caregivers have the training and experience to and provide the appropriate assistance in the comfort and familiarity of your spouse, parent or loved one’s own household. More information about heart disease can be found by visiting the American Heart Association website.
Personal home care services that caregivers referred by Senior Nannies commonly provide for individuals who are recovering from cardiac-related surgery or illness and those whose activity is restricted by chronic heart conditions include:
- • Personal care assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as hygiene, bathing and grooming; dressing;
transferring, positioning, and mobility/walking; using the toilet/incontinence; eating
- • Personal care assistance with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as meal planning, cooking, light
housekeeping, laundry, pet and plant care, transportation, errands,shopping, doctor and other appointments
- • Companionship – encouragement, interpersonal cognitive stimulation, facilitation of physical activity, and
intervention for loneliness and depression
Cardiac personal home care services can be provided on a part-time basis—typically 4 to 6 hours a day—in shifts, overnight, and on a full-time, live-in basis. For more information on non-medical in-home personal care, visit the Home Care Services section of this website.
If medically necessary skilled nursing care for a loved one with cardiac health concerns is required, Senior Nannies also refers skilled licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) who have experience with the special needs of individuals with cardiac health concerns to provide the appropriate in-home health care.
