Helping your senior manage CHF
As loved ones age, chronic diseases become more common. Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a common condition in the elderly in which the heart no longer pumps properly to fully support the body’s needs. CHF can become serious, especially when it goes undiagnosed. According to the National Institute of Health, it is the leading cause of hospitalizations for people over 65 years of age and often causes readmissions.
