Heart Health

February was American Hearth Month. We have found some resources that can help seniors keep a healthy heart. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a page dedicated to Heart Month. It outlines the symptoms and provides many resources that can help prevent a heart attack.

The next resource we found contains tips on how to reduce the risk of heart disease as well as a video that outline a heart-healthy diet. Senior Care Corner outlines 10 ways to outsmart heart disease. Sutter Health has a number of tips including treatment options for a heart attack. You may be surprised to see that taking aspirin has been found to reduce fatality by about 25% in heart attack victims.
