More than 70 million individuals in the U.S. are currently providing home care to a loved one, and this task is far from easy. It can be especially difficult if it is discovered that a relative is suffering from an illness such as Alzheimer's or heart disease. According to Caring.com, even though this is difficult news to hear, it is important that caregivers ask the right questions.
If a loved one is diagnosed with heart failure, it may be helpful to find out if it was possible to prevent this because it will help an individual understand the condition. Caregivers need to ask what is coming next, what danger signs need to be looked out for and what types of treatment the loved one, may need.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., and individuals can be diagnosed regardless of their family history.
