It’s been a long battle of health issues for our family in the last few years. My husband was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF) six years ago.
My grandfather just turned 97 years old and has trouble getting up out of bed and walking around the house sometimes. My grandmother passed away last year and I’m worried he’s not getting the care he needs.
I was recently diagnosed with MS and still able to do everything I was doing before my diagnosis. Do I really need to pursue palliative care for MS right now?
My uncle is living with congestive heart failure (CHF). Though he doesn’t complain often, I know how difficult it can be for him at times. I also know that, due to his stubborn nature, he won’t go out of his way to ask this himself. So, I thought I would take the initiative to find out myself: What are – if any – some easy lifestyle changes or “heart hacks” that can help him live with CHF?
