Providing Encouragement, Education and Support
After undergoing heart surgery or other heart procedures, you face a variety of challenges and changes to your lifestyle, and are likely to have many questions regarding your post-surgical or post-procedure care. To assist you in this process, MidMichigan Health’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Department has created a Healing Hearts Support Group geared towards individuals who have had coronary bypass surgery or angioplasty. The group meets monthly and aims to provide encouragement, education and support, in addition to serving as a way for patients to meet others who have experienced similar health care situations.
During Healing Hearts meetings, experts will be available to field questions in the areas of:
- Cardiovascular Medicine
- Medication Management
- Cardiac Rehabilitation
- Emotional and Psychosocial Needs
- And much more
Upcoming meetings will feature topics will include:
- Healthy Holiday Eating Habits
- How to Manage Stress
- Exercising Safely
Future meetings will be designed to meet the group’s needs and to address their challenges on the road to recovery.
