Cardiac Rehabilitation

Community Care Center takes cardiac rehab to the next level by providing short term, comprehensive care to facilitate a resident’s quick return home.

Our professionally supervised program is specifically designed for residents who are unable to return home immediately after cardiac surgery and who need medical supervision and intensive rehab to ease their transition back into the community.

What is Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac rehabilitation (cardiac rehab) is a professionally supervised program to help people recover from heart attacks, heart surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures such as stenting and angioplasty. Cardiac rehab programs usually provide education and counseling services to help heart patients increase physical fitness, reduce cardiac symptoms, improve health and reduce the risk of future heart problems, including heart attack.

Who can benefit from Cardiac Reha?

Patients recovering from:

  • Heart attack
  • Heart condition, such as coronary artery disease (CAD), angina or heart failure
  • Heart procedure or surgery, including coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), including coronary angioplasty (balloon angioplasty) and stenting, valve replacement, or a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)

Programs often include: 

  • A medical evaluation to figure out your needs and limitations. The medical staff uses this information to tailor a rehabilitation program for you and help you set goals.
  • A physical activity program tailored to your needs. During training your heart rate and blood pressure are monitored during physical activity. You will work with a physical therapist, or other healthcare professional. You learn how to check your heart rate and your level (intensity) of activity. Later, as your condition permits you work up to more intense aerobic activity on a treadmill or exercise bike.
  • Counseling and education to help you understand your condition and how to manage it. You may work with a dietitian to create a healthy eating plan. If you smoke, you may get counseling on how to stop. Counseling may also help you cope with depression, anger and stress during your recovery.
  • Support and training to help you return to work or your normal activities and to help you learn to manage your heart condition.
  • Regular physical activity helps your heart and the rest of your body get stronger and work better. Physical activity improves your energy level and lifts your spirits. It also reduces your chances of future heart problems, including heart attack.
  • Counseling and education can help you quit smoking, eat right, lose weight, and lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Counseling may also help you learn to manage stress and to feel better about your health.
  • You have the advice and close supervision of healthcare professionals to help you improve your health and lower your risk of future problems. These professionals can also communicate with your primary care doctor or cardiologist.
