Heart Disease Helpline: Heart Disease Support

Heart Disease Helpline

Heart disease causes more death than any disease in both men and women in the United States. Heart disease is used as an umbrella term to describe a variety of conditions that affect your heart.

Seeking out a heart disease helpline can be essential to managing your or your loved one's condition. However, many find this to be a challenging step to take. But you are not alone and there is plenty of help available. The ExtendaTouch community will enable you to connect with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges. ExtendaTouch is completely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of a positive heart disease community.

How can ExtendaTouch's Heart Disease helpline help me?

The ExtendaTouch community consists of unpaid family caregivers across the entire U.S. ExtendaTouch provides online tools for community members to share information and support; perhaps even current news about:

  • Managing symptoms and side effects
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Therapies and treatments
  • Risk prevention and warning signs

You can feel safe expressing yourself or reading about your most pressing questions about heart disease. ExtendaTouch is anonymous and secure to assist you in meeting other family caregivers to find information and support. ExtendaTouch doesn't provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
