How Can I Support My loved One?Open Document
Someone close to you has just had a heart attack, stroke or heart procedure. To help you handle your feelings, it's good to be aware of them and to share them with people you trust. Talk with members of your family, friends, people where you worship and healthcare providers. You and your loved one may also benefit from joining a support group for patients and their families. A heart attack, stroke or heart operation affects the whole family — not just the patient.
