Steps to take while at home
It’s important to help your family member or friend stay on track with healthy changes and medicines. Here are a few things you can do over time to help:
- Provide encouragement. It’s important for your family member or friend to stay on track with his or her medicines and lifestyle changes
- Take care of yourself. Your health matters too. Try to pace yourself. Ask for—and accept—help when you need it. Visit the American Heart Association website for more caregiving tips
Be a steady support. Sticking with the plan isn’t easy. But the risk of another heart attack is still very real. Make sure you’re there to help your family member or friend.
