Cardiac Rehabilitation Services

Cardiac rehabilitation is a team effort, with a special bond created between the patient and rehabilitation therapist. At home, the patient's family and friends support the team effort. Outside of the home, the Ministry Heart Care connection extends to all the health care providers on the patient's education, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation team.

Ministry Heart Care makes available various phases of cardiac rehabilitation close to home. Whether you receive care on an inpatient or outpatient basis, through a heart disease prevention program or following a heart treatment procedure, professional, compassionate care is the standard. The goal? To return you back to your life - equipped with better health and better knowledge.

The following rehabilitation programs are offered throughout the Ministry Heart Care system:

  • Phase I: Inpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation
  • Phase II: Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation
  • Phase III: Exercise Maintenance and Education
  • Phase IV: Outpatient Self-Maintenance
  • Behavior Modification Programs
  • Exercise and Fitness Programs
  • Occupational Therapy

Please check with the Ministry Health Care location near you for specific availability.

 

Care Management & Chronic Care Services

Taking care of your heart requires not only your commitment but also that of your heart care professionals. Ministry Heart Care provides ongoing case management and services for individuals with chronic conditions.

Heart disease risk is often tied to or affected by related health conditions, such as high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes. Local Ministry Health Care facilities have programs addressing those contributing factors. In addition, if short- or long-term care is required as a result of a heart procedure, some sites offer special units for patients who need additional recuperation or rehabilitation before returning home.

Support Groups

Ministry Heart Care's team of professionals provides one-on-one consultations and services with patients. However, once the program of care has begun, or even after the treatment phase is complete, patients may find extra support in meeting with people just like them.

Support groups provide a community atmosphere in which members share experiences, find solutions to questions, and bond with others. A variety of groups are offered at select Ministry sites or through community partners - and are led by experienced professionals.

For more information on each support group, meeting times, and upcoming activities, please visit each Ministry Health Care location's website.
