Just for family and friends
This section is written for you, the family and friends of a heart patient.
Family and friends are affected by the changing health of one they love. Heart problems for one member of a family become problems and significant change for all.
It is hard to get used to the idea that something has permanently changed in your life. Nothing will be the same again. You have lived through a crisis, and now you must begin to build a new life with new habits.
As the heart patient learns new patterns of eating, exercise and regularly managing medicine, you must learn new habits such as cooking according to new guidelines, arranging for regular exercise, picking up and giving medicines, and more.
