Why Cardiac Rehab?

As you plan for your recovery from heart surgery or hospitalization:

  • Is someone available to help you at home 24/7 as you heal?
  • Will you be capable of daily activities such as dressing, cooking and bathing on your own?
  • Will you be strong enough to return to your regular lifestyle right away?
  • Will you be able to maintain a specific exercise program at home?

If there’s any concern about the mobility and strength required to accomplish these tasks post-surgery or post-hospitalization, cardiac rehab is the right choice as you recover.
