As these conditions progress, seniors may experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, and reduced mobility, making it challenging for them to perform daily tasks and maintain independence.

With the right support and care, seniors with heart conditions can manage their symptoms effectively and enjoy a higher quality.
