Living Well with Heart Failure 

If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with heart failure, you may be wondering what this means for you and your family. You are not alone as more than 90,000 Canadians are diagnosed with heart failure each year.

These short 2-minute videos will tell you what you need to know about living well with heart failure. You will learn about common heart failure symptoms, medications that will help you live longer and better, how your health care team can help, and other self-management strategies.

Download the CHFS Patient Diary below to keep track of your symptoms and medications, and share it with your health care team at your next appointment.

Visit the CHFS YouTube channel for videos available in French, Mandarin and Punjabi.
