Living with a health problem like high blood pressure can affect more than just your physical wellbeing. It can also take a toll on your emotions, making you feel anxious, stressed or sometimes a bit low.
Here are some ways to help reduce the burden:
Sometimes a helping hand is all you need to get you off on the right track to controlling high blood pressure. A good place to start may be with the NHS and Social Services – these can provide a number of services to make your life a little easier. For example, it may be possible to arrange home visits from an appropriate healthcare professional. If you need equipment, such as a wheelchair or walking frame, the occupational therapy department of your local Social Services office can sometimes lend items out and help you to adapt your home.
Ask at your GP surgery to find how you can get referred to Social Services providers in your area.
The Blood Pressure Association is an organisation that provides valuable help, information and support to people with high blood pressure. It’s also a useful source of information for those caring for others with high blood pressure, or for friends and relatives. Contacting the Blood Pressure Association may help you to understand and manage your condition better.
