Heart Wise is Maria Parham's 12 week medically supervised Cardiac Rehabilitation (Rehab) program designed to help patients with heart disease recover faster and return to full and productive lives. You can benefit from rehab if you have had a heart attack, angina pectoris, recent coronary artery bypass surgery, recent angioplasty, and/or stent placement. Cardiac Rehab is covered by Medicare and most major medical insurance companies. We will work with you to verify your coverage before starting the program.
The program offers individually prescribed exercises, education and counseling to help participants begin heart healthy living.
The goals of cardiac rehab include:
- Reducing the risk of future heart problems
- Controlling cardiac symptoms
- Stabilizing or reversing the heart disease process
- Improving the quality of life
- Returning the participant to gainful employment when possible
- Increasing exercise tolerance
- Reducing hospitalizations
- Reducing stress
At Heart Wise you will find a fun and supportive atmosphere where our caring staff works to help each patient reach their goals. Our group walks and bikes to their favorite oldies music helping to make exercise fun. Following their cardio workout, participants can work with our staff on resistance training or strength training exercises. Our participants all look forward to coming each week to not only workout, but see their friends and our staff. Many of our program members have seen substantial positive results in their lives that they continue participation through our maintenance program.
If you are interested in joining us, Heart Wise meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7:15 am - 8:45 am. To learn more about our program, see our contact information below.
