Aging doesn't only mean deterioration in physical appearance. It also means that your whole body, including internal organs, is aging. As time passes, they weaken and lose many functions, possibly needing home care Vancouver sooner. That weakness also happens with the heart. It becomes stiff as you age. The blood vessels may also get affected, and that means you might get higher risks to conditions such as the following:
Coronary Artery Disease
This condition happens when the arteries narrow due to fat deposits and block the passage of blood.
Congestive Heart Failure
This problem occurs when the heart cannot pump anymore and retains fluids, which leads to shortness of breath.
Ischemic attacks or stroke
This attack happens when there is blood flow disruption to the brain. This is also one of the leading causes of death.
Hypertension or hypotension
The elderly might have high blood pressure due to lifestyle choices, obesity, and other factors. But they could also experience hypotension due to multiple medications such as diuretics, beta-blockers, and some antidepressants. These are not considered cardiac diseases but are prevalent in people with heart conditions.
