February is National Heart Disease Awareness Month
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.
Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices.
We can use this month to raise awareness about heart disease and how people can prevent it — both at home and in the community.
Here are just a few ideas:
  • Encourage families to make small changes, like using spices to season their food instead of salt.
  • Motivate teachers and administrators to make physical activity a part of the school day. This can help students start good habits early.
  • Ask doctors and nurses to be leaders in their communities by speaking out about ways to prevent heart disease.
Please show your support and wear red on National Wear Red day, Friday February 5th, 2016.

  1. Swingbed (skilled nursing services)
    Swing bed services are to help inpatients as they transition from acute care for an illness or surgery to returning home. Often assistance is needed during recovery before you are able to care for yourself at home. Each patient's needs are evaluated, and a care plan is put into place. The care team consisting of the Provider, nurses, therapists, social worker, the patient's family, and of course the patient. The care team determines goals and plans to reach those goals. Swing bed services are paid by Medicare, Medicaid, and many private commercial insurances.
