Family, friends and carers
Heart Valve Voice want to ensure all patients, and their families, have access to resources that can help them manage heart valve disease, fully benefit from treatment and return to a good quality of life as quickly as possible.
We have extensive information & resources for patients, but have also developed some very useful for their families, friends and carers too. If you are supporting someone with heart valve disease, take a look through our resources to find out what you can do to aid your loved ones recovery and help them return to a normal life as quickly as possible.
Families often need as much support as the individual with valve disease, especially dealing with a long-standing health condition and prior to planning surgery. - Christina Bannister, Nurse Case Manager for Cardiac Surgery, Southampton General.
