Your heart is an important organ in your body, and it can be damaged and affected by many things. As you get older, the chances of experiencing heart problems can increase, and there may come a time when your doctor recommends for you to have a stress test. If you have never done this before, you may wonder what to expect from this and what it is for. Here are some important things you should know as you prepare to get this.
You may have a relative or friend who chooses to continue living at home while receiving home health services. If your loved one is an elderly individual, it may be best to have that person first evaluated by a primary care physician or to have a social worker assess the at-home residence to make sure that this is a safe choice. Once safety is assured, then there are a number of other vital issues that will have to be addressed and settled before you start searching for a home health care provider.
