Retirement homes - Cardiology


A cardiologist is a doctor with special training and skill in finding, treating and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels. Whether the cardiologist sees you in the office or in the hospital or clinic, he or she will review your medical history and perform a physical examination which may include checking your blood pressure, weight, heart, lungs, and blood vessels.

Cardiology is a sub-specialty of internal medicine. Therefore, a physician who plans to practice cardiology first goes through the internal medicine residency program.

The Division of Cardiology within the Department of Medicine pursues their mission of educating future leaders in cardiovascular medicine, exploring leading edge basic translational, clinical and population research that will redefine the field, and providing exceptional care for patients at risk for or with established cardiovascular disease.

Many of our cardiologists are physician-scientists who conduct clinical and/or laboratory research in addition to treating patients. This close relationship between science and medicine fosters new lines of investigation and speeds the translation of new discoveries to clinical practise.

Cardiologists provide health care to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases and conditions of the heart and cardiovascular system, including the arteries. Because the field of cardiology encompasses so many different types of diseases and procedures, there are many different types of cardiology one may choose to practice depending on his or her interests and skill sets, and the type of work they’d like to do.

The Cardiology Division continues a leading role in cardiovascular research. It is associated closely with the Population Health Research Institute.


Nursing homes

A retirement home – sometimes called an old people's home, although this term can also refer to a nursing home –  is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens.

A nursing home is a place for people who don't need to be in a hospital but can't be cared for at home. Most nursing homes have nursing aides and skilled nurses on hand 24 hours a day. There might be a nurses' station on each floor. Other nursing homes try to be more like home. They try to have a neighborhood feel. Often, they don't have a fixed day-to-day schedule, and kitchens might be open to residents.

Nursing homes offer the most extensive care a person can get outside a hospital. Nursing homes offer help with custodial care - like bathing, getting dressed, and eating - as well as skilled care. Skilled nursing care is given by a registered nurse and includes medical monitoring and treatments.
