Congestive Heart Failure

Considered one of the worst illnesses ever experienced, it is especially tough to watch and take care of someone suffering from this disease. People who suffer from CHF may also develop other serious health problems when it starts to affect the lungs, kidneys, and liver.

People with CHF may require the use of a wheelchair to get around indoors and outdoors. If there is a serious problem with shortness of breath, then the person may require a wheelchair to get around. Some people with severe congestive heart failure may require a transport wheelchair, or a caregiver chair.

This is because they may not be able to propel or maneuver on their own, therefore they need the assistance of a caretaker or caregiver to push them while they are using the chair.
