Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 600,000 Americans each year. For this reason, Gold Crest Care Center is devoting the month of February to raising awareness of heart health for all of their friends and neighbors in the community.

About 1 in 3 U.S. adults have high blood pressure, which increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, the leading causes of death in the United States. Blood pressure is the force of blood against your artery walls as it circulates through your body. Blood pressure normally rises and falls throughout the day, but it can cause health problems if it stays high for a long time. High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it often has no warning signs or symptoms, and many people don't realize they have it. That's why it's important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. The test is completely painless and can ultimately save your life.

There's a common misconception that people with  high blood pressure, also called hypertension, will experience symptoms such as nervousness, sweating, difficulty sleeping or facial flushing. The truth is that HBP is largely a symptomless condition. If you ignore your blood pressure because you think symptoms will alert you to the problem, you are taking a dangerous chance with your life. Everybody needs to know their blood pressure numbers, and everyone needs to prevent high blood pressure from developing.

"Our goal at Gold Crest has always been to improve the health of our patients, residents, along with the extended Bronx community at large. We hope to protect the hearts of all of our neighbors, and we have been welcoming all those that came for a free screening and hope that many more will do the same," stated Mark Salamon, Administrator at Gold Crest.

Gold Crest Care Center is located at 2316 Bruner Ave in the Bronx. They will be providing free blood pressure checks daily through the end of February from 2:00 pm5:00 pm.
