Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Jennings is proudly participating in American Heart Month. As part of our commitment to healthy heart recovery, our HelpingHearts program provides skilled nursing and rehabilitation specifically for individuals living with CHF.

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:

  • Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.
  • Manage stress.
