Heart Disease Prevention for Caregivers
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, killing more than all forms of cancer combined. That’s why VITAS Healthcare has partnered with the American Heart Association to raise awareness of heart disease so caregivers can live healthier, longer lives.
As a caregiver, you spend much of your time caring for those around you, and it's easy to ignore your heart health. When you compromise your health, you compromise the care that you provide to those around you.
Start by Taking Control
Knowledge is power and understanding your family history of heart disease is the first step in understanding your risk.
Lifestyle choices play a major role in heart disease prevention. Make sure you manage your stress levels, develop better eating habits and exercise 20 minutes per day.
You are not alone in your journey to heart health. The American Heart Association is your resource for heart health.
