As we age, our hearts become more vulnerable to various health conditions. It is essential for seniors to prioritize their cardiovascular health. At Bell Avenue Nursing Center, we understand the importance of a healthy heart, and we want to share some tips on how seniors can take care of their cardiovascular health.

Regular exercise is crucial in maintaining a healthy heart. It can be as simple as going for a walk around the nursing home or participating in a chair exercise activity. Exercise not only strengthens the heart but also helps to control blood pressure and cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of heart disease.

A balanced diet too, is essential for heart health. Seniors must aim to eat a variety of nutrient-rich foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. At Bell Avenue Nursing Center, our dieticians work with each resident to create a personalized meal plan that meets their unique nutritional needs.

Regular check-ups with a healthcare provider are crucial in monitoring and managing cardiovascular health. Regular blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose screenings.

Our experienced healthcare team works with residents on exercise, diet, and regular check-ups to ensure their heart health is maintained. We believe that cardiovascular health is a crucial aspect of overall wellness for seniors.
