Heart Disease, Congestive Heart Failure

A patient  with heart disease may be eligible for hospice care if he or she has one or more of these:

  • Trouble breathing at rest, even without exertion
  • Difficulty carrying out daily tasks (because of water-retention, difficulty breathing, or generalized weakness)
  • Taking multiple medications for high blood pressure and water retention but they are not working well
  • Trouble with heart rhythm (has or does not have a pacemaker and/or internal defibrillator)
(Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)

I want to make a difference for those living with serious illness & loss in Montgomery County.
