National Heart Awareness Month/ A-1 Home Care San Gabriel

Happy Heart Awareness Month! For this week, A-1 Home Care will be focusing on proper heart health practices.
Did you know that heart attack and heart disease is the number one killer of seniors and adults in America?
In the main type of heart disease, a fatty substance called plaque builds up in the arteries that bring oxygen-rich blood to the heart. Over time, this buildup causes the arteries to narrow and harden. When this happens, the heart does not get all the blood it needs to work properly. The result can be chest pain or a heart attack.
Most cases of stroke occur when a blood vessel bringing blood to the brain becomes blocked. The underlying condition for this type of blockage is having fatty deposits lining the vessel walls. These plaques are built up due to consumption of saturated fats and habits such as lack of self care, exercise and smoking.
A-1 Home Care takes pride in arranging compatible and affordable caregivers around Southern California. We have holiday caregivers available for the busy times during Christmas and New Years.
