VISITING

Hope for recovery. Hope
for a rich, full life.

For more than 50 years, Mended Hearts has been offering the
gift of hope and encouragement to heart patients, their families and
caregivers.

Patients, spouses, family members, friends, medical
professionals, Mended Hearts brings together all of us who are faced
with the realities of heart disease to form a network of caring
individuals. Patients discovering that they have heart disease and will
need surgery or another procedure often feel scared, angry, Sad and
sometimes lost.  They worry that life will never be the same
and that they won’t be able to do things they could do before the
surgery or procedure.

They frequently wonder if they will survive. Regardless of
the circumstances, the thoughts and feelings felt by patients, parents
and caregivers are universal: Did I do something to cause
this?  What will my life or my child’s life be like after
surgery or a heart procedure?

Will I be able to face the outcome — whatever it is? Will my
family and marriage be strong enough to handle this?  Will I
be able to work?  How will I make financial decisions and
understand insurance issues in the middle of this nightmare?

Feelings of helplessness and loss of control are overwhelming
as the patient or a child’ scare is placed in the hands of doctors and
nurses speaking the foreign language of medical terms.
