Congestive Heart Failure Program
Congestive heart failure, or CHF, requires a specially trained clinical team of health care professionals. Windsor understands the challenges of maintaining the regimen needed to remain symptom-free once a patient returns home. We focus on putting realistic home programs into place before the patients goes home so success can be continuously maintained. Some of the features of the Windsor CHF program include:
- Physical and occupational therapy up to 7 days a week
- Daily weight monitoring
- 24/7 nursing care
- Specially prepared 2 gram sodium diet
- Social work and discharge planning
- Patient-centered education to prepare for living at home successfuly
Heart failure patients require a range of intensive medical services, including physical, occupational and speech therapy, nutritional monitoring, emotional support, and physician care. We utilize a physician directed and patient-focused strategy, and assist patients in achieving their highest potential for recovery by designing a treatment plan specific to their clinical needs. Our total care team uses daily communication among the physician, clinical team, patient and patient's family to facilitate successful outcomes.
