The Temple Heart & Vascular Institute’s free Heart Failure Support Group offers patients the chance to share their experiences with others and learn more about their disease. Many who attend are comforted by the knowledge that they're not alone. Family members are also encouraged to attend meetings so they can learn how to cope with heart failure.
This month's support group will have a special focus on:
- Managing fluid intake in the heat
- Keeping track of your sodium
- Things to consider if you’re going to travel
