Mended Hearts

Adjusting to a serious health problem often takes time. You may experience depression or anxiety. Cardiac rehabilitation provides support, not only from staff members, but also from other patients. You will learn that you aren't alone. Some patients join Mended Hearts, a support group offered at Lake Regional.

Mended Hearts is a nationwide support group that has been in existence since 1951. The group partners with hospitals, clinics and rehabilitation centers to help people affected by heart disease.

Mended Hearts makes education a top priority when it comes to patient care and well-being. The group sponsors regular monthly support group meetings where medical professionals share their knowledge with the audience.

The Lake Regional Mended Hearts Support Group meets the second Thursday of each month at 12:30 p.m. in the hospital's Cardiac Rehab department on the second floor.

For more information, call Jennifer Newman, R.N., CEN, cPT, a nurse educator in Cardiopulmonary Rehab, at 573-302-2282.
