High Blood Pressure Management


High Blood Pressure (or hypertension) is a condition that requires the heart to work harder than normal. Higher pressure exerted on the blood vessels causes damage to the vessels over time. This damage can go undetected for a long period of time, because there are often no symptoms associated with hypertension. For this reason, it is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly even if you have no symptoms.

High blood pressure increases the risk for stroke, heart attacks and kidney disease.

Our registered nurses will work with individuals diagnosed with high blood pressure to:

  • Increase knowledge about the disease
  • Identify and manage co-morbid conditions that contribute to high blood pressure
  • Reinforce the importance of both medication and lifestyle for optimal blood pressure control
  • Develop personal goals and strategies to manage high blood pressure

All of our condition management programs are personalized to meet your needs and schedule. You’ll work with a wellness coach who will meet with you one-on-one. Worried about making it to in-person appointments? Don’t be! Our nurses can work with you by phone, or with our easy-to-use telehealth software – secure web-based video conferencing you can access on your smartphone, tablet or any computer with a web-cam. Together, you and your coach will build strategies and goals to help you manage your health condition.
