Why I created "Living With Heart Failure"

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.

Meet Terra Goodrich, RN, PCCN
My name is Terra Goodrich and I am the CEO and founder of Transitional Cardiac Care LLC. I have been a Cardiac specialized Registered Nurse for 6 years. I am also a certified Progressive Cardiac Care Nurse (PCCN). I am a Daisy award winner and I have also received the International Nurses Association award for Nurse Leadership.

When I started working as a Cardiac nurse I grew extremely close to my CHF patients. I quickly realized that there was a lack of resources and education in the outpatient setting that they need to properly manage the disease by themselves at home.

I was tired of watching the light for life dim in every patient I took care of.

I want to bridge the gap not only for patients who now have to adjust their whole life, but also for the medical providers who are overwhelmed with the amount of patients they have to see everyday.


About Transitional Cardiac Care

Transitional Cardiac Care is a home-based cardiac education and monitoring service. After you are discharged following a Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) diagnosis, TCC will closely monitor you for 30 days. In those 30 days we will provide you with all the education, lifestyle management, and symptom management tools you will need to properly manage your diagnosis on a day to day basis so you can regain your independence. 

The program will consist of in home education using a method called "the teach back method”. Daily, through telecommunication we will ask you to report your weight, blood pressures, and any other symptoms you might be feeling, allowing us to properly triage your symptom status and collaborate with your healthcare team for possible need for treatment changes. Our aim is to help the you prevent exacerbation and avoid readmission within 30 days of the previous hospital stay. 

Our mission is to help improve quality of life in congestive heart failure patients by providing proper education, disease management tools, and qualified monitoring. We strive to give the patients back their freedom and not allow the disease to run their life.

This is the first step to taking control of a cardiac diagnosis. It can be extremely confusing to learn how to live with the new lifestyle you have to adapt to in order to take care of yourself properly. A lot of changes will occur, especially if this is a brand new diagnosis for you. 

Water management, new medications, diet, and activity are all going to need to change and that can be overwhelming. Here at TCC we aim to decrease some of those anxieties and YOU the upper hand. You are not alone!

HEAR WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY...
It is with privilege and honor to express my support for the Transitional Cardiac Care program for heart failure patients that are diagnosed in the central valley. 

To date, it would be the first of its kind and would promote a healthier and better lifestyle for those afflicted with this progressive disease. With education and guided support, heart failure patients would have less readmission to the hospital and improved compliance with medication. After all, noncompliance is the primary reason for repeat hospitalizations. While the disease itself is progressive, this nursing care provided would also support them through their condition and elevate their quality of life through daily reminders, guidance and motivation with changes in lifestyle. 

I believe the valley is lacking in having a heart failure program and this can be a start to improve the care with a specialized program. Ms. Terra Goodrich’s quality experiences at Doctor’s Medical Center on the cardiology floors and emergency room will guide her to succeed and follow through to make Transitional Cardiac Care a wonderful resource to the community.
