Cardiac rehabilitation begins in the hospital after a heart attack, heart surgery or other heart problem. At San Luis Transitional Care we help you begin light activity to get you stronger. You’ll learn more about your condition and risk factors. We help you become more aware of your body’s response to exercise and help you to return home safely. We also talk to you about changes you can make to help reduce your risk of more heart problems
San Luis Transitional Care’s cardiac rehabilitation focuses on exercise and education.
We work with you to:
- Improve your cardiovascular fitness and endurance, muscle strength and flexibility
- Develop healthy lifestyle habits, including exercise, nutrition and stress management
- Modify behaviors that put you at increased risk for further heart problems
- Provide support as you return to activities of daily living
