Use these tips and resources to help you better manage the effects of advanced heart disease.
Heart disease can be tough on your body and drain your energy. Your symptoms can make it hard for you to do things you want to do—and your family and other caregivers may not know how to help.
If you are being served by either Agrace Supportive Care or Agrace Hospice Care and have any cardiac disease that affects your quality of life, Agrace can help you better manage and cope with your troubling symptoms. Our specialty Advanced Cardiac Care program offers an extra layer of support for you and your caregivers.
Heart disease is a chronic illness that cannot be cured, but you can find relief if your medications are well-managed, you try some lifestyle changes and you learn more about your disease. Agrace can help by offering you targeted care for your heart-related symptoms while you are enrolled in our services.
Our Advanced Cardiac Care (ACC) program is a collaboration with the American Heart Association (AHA) and the National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI). Agrace Hospice Care is one of the first hospices in the country to join this effort and is certified in Palliative/Hospice Heart Failure by the AHA. The program is also available to patients of Agrace Supportive Care.
