Heart Failure Disease Management
Welcome to Stead Heart & Vascular Center’s Heart Failure Program at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. A trusted source for heart failure services.
In partnership with your physician, we trust this program will give you support and information to help you with your heart failure recovery.
Since heart failure, like diabetes or arthritis, is a chronic disease, our goal is to manage the disease and its symptoms. Although some days are more difficult than others, remaining successful in controlling the disease means not being overwhelmed or discouraged by day-to-day changes. The best way is to notice these changes in signs and symptoms and to address them.
Many people with heart failure lead normal, active lives. They do so because they have learned to take good care of themselves. Our Heart Failure Patient Education Program is designed to help you learn to live successfully with heart failure. We want you to learn about your body, the disease and methods of treatment. You can take control over heart failure by carefully following proper medication advice and healthy lifestyle changes. If you do, you may be able to lead an active and satisfying life.
Our program provides detailed information, group lectures and peer interaction for individuals with heart failure and will help you to:
- Understand your treatment plan
- Learn how to actively work with your doctor or nurse so you can feel better
- Learn how to overcome common stumbling blocks in following your treatment plan of your life
We have a wide variety of resources and information all designed for you. Our Heart Failure Education and Awareness group learns about the many simple aspects of heart failure that are easily controlled. Working together we can better meet your needs and manage your heart failure. Our goal is for you to be comfortable in your daily activities and enjoy life.
