Palliative Care

Heart disease is the leading killer for men and women in the United States. Assitance and care will typically fall onto family members and spouses — most of whom are women. Studies show that more than 50% of women in America will care for a family member at some point during their adult lives. Palliative care teams also explore the ways to cope with that stress, working on long-term coping strategies that deal with the hard emotions in life.

Purpose in Life

A recent study explored the role of life purpose in your heart health. Researchers from the University of Michigan¬†found that having a purpose in life may decrease your risk of dying early. It’s also a modifiable risk factor that improves both physical and mental health.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is bridging gaps in health care coverage, offering a virtual solution for patients to communicate with their doctor when distances, location, or access present physical barriers.

Live To Be 100

The nine factors identified in healthy living seem simple to follow on the surface. “Healthy living is a lifestyle. It’s not just exercise and nutrition; it is also support.”
