Keep Your Heart Healthy

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. In Kentucky, 15.5%* of adults age 65+ are affected by heart disease. February is American Heart Month, and Nazareth Home is raising awareness to help prevent heart disease and increase knowledge of its effects.

Making healthy lifestyle choices can help lower your risk of developing heart disease. It is also essential for people currently living with heart disease to control and prevent risk factors. To reduce your risk:

  • Exercise and eat healthy
  • Watch your weight
  • Quit smoking and avoid secondhand smoke
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter throughout February for more tips on keeping a healthy heart.
