Heart Failure Bridging Program

  • This is an exercise and lifestyle modification program for heart failure patients staffed by qualified health care professionals. They help you design a personalized exercise program and provide education based on your needs and goals.

    The program includes a one-on-one consultation with a therapist for review of patient medical history, medications and diet. The visits also include a quick look of heart rhythm, blood pressure check, and evaluation of weight and symptoms. This program serves as a bridge between hospital discharge and the start of Phase 2 Cardiac Rehab, for those patients that are eligible for Phase 2.

    Assistive devices are available to support mobility.

    Advantages of the program:

    • Improves endurance in daily activities
    • Helps in maintaining independence
    • Reduces emergency room visits and hospitalizations
    • Individual education from dietician and pharmacist
    • Group interaction promotes friendships and social support
