Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation at Cobble Hill Health Center is designed to meet the physical, emotional, and educational needs of people recovering from a cardiac condition. The ultimate goal of cardiac rehab is to return the resident to an active, healthier life through exercise and lifestyle changes.

What to Expect

A personal exercise program will be developed based on the resident’s medical needs, abilities, and goals. The exercise classes are fun, safely challenging and well-structured. A rehabilitation therapist will closely monitor the resident’s vital signs while exercising using a treadmill, upper and lower body ergosizers, stair-climbing exercise machine and free weights.

Educational and lifestyle management classes are offered on an ongoing basis in:

  • Heart health
  • Healthy eating
  • Cardiac medications
  • Blood pressure management
  • Strength training
  • Stress relief

Get the Most out of Cardiac Rehab

Work with the healthcare team to design a personalized plan to reduce cardiac risks and meet that resident’s needs.

Ask questions. Report changes in feelings (emotional) or physical symptoms to doctors, nurses, rehab therapists and social workers.
