Mended Hearts Group Meetings
Stephens Memorial Hospitals Vital Connections Mended Hearts Group Meetings are held the third Tuesday of the month. The group meets regularly for heart patients and families to receive support in coping with the strong emotions that often accompany diagnosis, treatment or surgery for heart disease. Learning to understand and express their shock, disbelief, anger or frustration is an important step in the patients' recovery process, and the supportive environment of group meetings provides a forum for these discussions. An invited healthcare professional guest speaks monthly to present valuable information and answer questions.
Always looking to grow our family, Mended Hearts welcomes you to join our cause. You'll be able to make a difference in a patient's recovery and outlook on life, as well as interact with other members through local chapter meetings, volunteer opportunities and special events.
Our Mended Hearts Satellite Chapter at STEPHENS MEMORIAL HOSPITAL in Norway,will meet again on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 6:00 PM at 193 Main Street, Ripley Building, Harper Conference Room. The speaker will be Dennise Whitley, American Heart Association representative talking on heart health for the cardiac patient and playing some BINGO.
