Prioritizing Heart Health: Avon Place Celebrates Heart Health Month

February 6, 2024
Celebrate National Heart Health Month with Avon Place! February is dedicated to the importance and awareness of maintaining heart health. Partnering with Concerto Renal Services, we offer on-site dialysis, vital for residents facing kidney and heart diseases, often interconnected. By learning your health history you can lower your heart disease risk by exercising, eating a healthy diet, smoking cessation, and taking medicine as directed. Embrace heart-healthy choices like green tea, rich in antioxidants and compounds with anti-inflammatory properties, potentially reducing fatty deposits on artery walls, rather than high-sugar drinks like soda.

Other ways to improve heart health include:

Taking a Brief Walk

A short walk is a great way to add movement into your day.

Healthy Diets

Nuts such as peanuts, walnuts, and almonds are good for the heart, along with eating fruits and vegetables daily.

Deep Breathing Exercises

Managing stress is important in heart health. Try to take a few minutes out of each day to breathe and think positively. Anger and worry can contribute to high blood pressure and heart disease.

Washing Hands Often

Preventing infection is a great way to protect your heart health.

Health Monitoring

Regularly monitor your blood pressure and cholesterol. Setting small health goals is a way to get started.

At Avon Place, our commitment to our residents' well-being is unwavering. Through partnerships like Concerto Renal Services and initiatives like Heart Health Month, we prioritize our residents' health and empower them to lead heart-healthy lives.
