A healthy lifestyle helps maintain a healthy heart. That is why Community Hospital, in Torrington, has a cardiac rehabilitation program to help patients with heart conditions live healthier lives.
Our goal is to improve each patient’s heart performance through exercise, a healthy diet, stress reduction and education. The cardiac rehabilitation program consists of three phases:
Inpatient Program - Phase I
For surgical patients, cardiac rehabilitation may begin in the hospital with low level, progressive physical activity. Patient and family will learn about heart disease and how to manage the patient’s care after being discharged from the hospital.
Outpatient Program - Phase II
The outpatient program provides self-monitoring skills and tools for a healthy lifestyle. The patient follows monitored exercise sessions three times a week. Patients and their families receive education on diet, exercise and stress management.
Maintenance Program – Phase III
Patients build upon the progress in Phases I and II. This program also can help people at risk of developing heart disease. It includes supervised exercise and ongoing support to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
