Living better with heart failure
When the heart grows weaker, it can limit the activities we are able to do. CARE4CARDIO® gives you confidence in managing the disease and helps prevent your condition from deteriorating.
Experienced healthcare professionals provide you with support by phone. You check your weight daily and answer questions about your symptoms on the device that you're given as part of the programme. That way, early warning signals can be detected, thus helping prevent your condition from deteriorating and allowing you to take measures at an early stage.
Look on the Swiss Heart Foundation website (in German) to see whether you have symptoms of heart failure.
To sign up, complete the consent form (PDF in German) and send it to Health Care Systems GmbH (HCSG).
The ability to detect changes in your symptoms at an early stage gives you assurance and helps keep you out of hospital. What's more, the one-to-one conversations help you gain a better understanding of the disease and thus stabilise your condition.
