Living with CAD
Your physician has referred you to Interim HealthCare, particularly for our Living with Coronary Artery Disease at Home Program.  You may have just suffered a heart attack, were hospitalized or your doctor may believe that your CAD may be better managed at home – either way, your doctor has asked us to assist you in taking control of your heart disease.  The professionals at Interim HealthCare understand that living with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is an everyday challenge.  Our skilled team of nurses, therapists and social workers are here, ready to work with you and your doctor in order to help take control of your disease and put you on the trajectory toward a healthier life.

Living With Heart Failure 
Around 61 million Americans (approximately one-fourth of the population) has some form of cardiovascular disease, with 6 million cardiovascular related hospitalizations each year.  Our team at Interim commonly works with heart failure, as this is the most common reason for a hospital stay among those with Medicare and is a significant contributor to disability.  Our Living With Heart Failure program offers the necessary resources necessary to improve both financial and clinical outcomes for our patients.
