How Does Cardiac Rehabilitation Work?

The days and weeks following a cardiac event can be overwhelming. Our cardiac rehabilitation program at Hendricks Regional Health maps out the road to recovery through a medically supervised education and exercise program. These services are available in Danville, Brownsburg and at the Hendricks Regional Health YMCA in Avon.

A vital tool in your emotional recovery after a cardiac event is the support and camaraderie shared by other patients. As patients exercise together through our Cardiac Rehab program, they share experiences and concerns, and help each other along the path of healing.

With cardiac rehabilitation, we aim to help our patients:

  • Minimize the effects of heart disease
  • Reduce the risk of future health problems
  • Bring your heart back to good health

Our specialized program, which also benefits those with congestive heart failure, includes nutritional guidance, medication management, instructions and guidelines for activity, and education about the disease process.

Cardiac rehabilitation services at Hendricks Regional Health are tailored to the specific patient’s treatment plan. For additional information on the importance of cardiac rehabilitation, take a look at this helpful guide from the American Heart Association.

Free Cardiac Rehab Home Health Visits

Hendricks Regional Health offers free home visits for congestive heart failure patients. This strategy aims to decrease readmissions and allow patients to spend more time at home where they are the most comfortable.

8.5% of patients who do not receive home visits end up readmitting into the hospital, whereas only 1.5% of patients readmit when they receive home visits. Watch our video to learn more about Cardiac Rehab and free home visits at Hendricks Regional Health.
