Question Want to live longer inspite of reduced heart efficiency

Hi
My uncle has just been told that his heart is only 55% efficient and he will only live for a maximum of 2 years.Please help me in providing information on what diet, exercise, medication, treatment, lifestyle, and other dos and donts he should carry out in his day to day life so that he lives longer and healthy.
He is over 70 years of age and has become very weak now. He uses oxygen cylinder sometimes and gets blackouts at times too.
He has had a bypass ten years ago.

Thanks and god bless.
