Alamance Regional’s Congestive Heart Failure Clinic helps patients learn to manage congestive heart failure, improve the quality of life and reduce the risk of future health complications.
Our program focuses on proper nutrition, exercise, medication and daily weight monitoring. The clinic serves newly diagnosed heart failure patients as well as those who have had heart failure for a number of years. Valet parking is now available for patients of the Congestive Heart Failure Clinic and volunteers are available to escort patients.
The clinic works to optimize the use of medical treatments proven to benefit clients with heart failure. As a participant in the program, the patient learns:
- Causes of congestive heart failure
- Importance of daily weights
- Medication use
- Benefits of a low sodium diet
