Helping with Activity and Exercise for Heart Failure

Keeping active can help a person with heart failure feel better, decrease symptoms, and improve heart function. But remaining active may be very difficult.

Family and friends can help a person with heart failure become more active and enjoy it more by:

  • Encouraging the person with heart failure to be as active as possible.

  • Taking walks and participating in activities. Exercise and activity are always more fun when they feel like a social event.

Refer to Module 5: Exercise and Activity for specific information on starting and maintaining an activity program
