Heart Research Month With Love From Right at Home Australia

| News

It was Valentine's Day this month—we hope you all got the love and appreciation you deserve from friends and family. February also marks Heart Research Month and so we would like to share with you some valuable information on how to stay heart healthy now and into the future.  

Heart Research Australia has adopted the slogan, REDFEB 2023, encouraging Australians to wear red this month for someone close to your heart.  

According to Heart Research Australia, heart disease is Australia’s leading cause of death affecting families and communities around the country. Getting involved is as simple as wearing red and donating.  

The Australian Bureau of Statistics states that heart disease is Australia’s leading single cause of death, with 18,590 deaths attributed to heart disease in Australia in 2017, and kills one Australian every 28 minutes. 

Right at Home has extensive experience in prevention and care when it comes to managing heart disease. We customise our homecare programs to meet every client’s specialised needs including: 

  • Develop and/or implement a heart healthy diet (including shopping and meal preparation, if necessary) 
  • Assist with physician-prescribed exercises 
  • Help with the daily activities of living (such as homemaking and hygiene) 
  • Provides medication reminders 

For more information on heart health, download Heart Research Australia’s Educational Booklet.
