INTRODUCING: A FREE Video Guide From Cardiac Nurse Expert, Terra Goodrich, RN, PCCN
Hello, I am Terra Goodrich the CEO of Transitional Cardiac Care. I am a cardiac specialized nurse with a certification in progressive cardiovascular care nursing.
Before I became a nurse my grandfather was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF). I watched him and my grandma struggle to keep him healthy. I truly felt like they never really understood the disease. That was not from not wanting to understand, but from a lack of education and resources.
I watched him go in and out of the hospital, and he never really felt “good”. He never lived an “independent life” again. He could eat one meal, that he didn’t realize was full of salt, and as a result spend 4-5 days in the hospital recovering. I watched his “light” for life go out. It was devastating to watch, and at the time I didn’t know how to help.
So… I became a nurse. I specialized in cardiac nursing for 6 years. I took care of many congestive heart failure patients, and they soon became my “family”.
I watched so many “lights” fade and their hope for healing disintegrate. They would be in a room surrounded by loved ones and all they feel is ALONE. The reality that the memories they could make with their families is no longer an option became a forethought. Immense amounts of stress was added to their HEART from the massive hospital bills that were piling up.
They were bombarded by the side effects they were receiving from all the new medications they were prescribed. They were left feeling extremely uneducated about their disease. The ACCEPTED the overwhelming fact that they were DYING. They LOST HOPE and QUALITY of LIFE.
Thus, Transitional Cardiac Care was born and the Living with Heart Failure program came to light.
