Cardiac Mended Hearts
Mended Hearts is a national and community-based non-profit organization that has been offering the gift of hope to heart disease patients, their families and caregivers for 60 years. Recognized for its role in facilitating a positive patient-care experience, Mended Hearts, New Orleans Chapter 373, has partnered with West Jefferson Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehabilitation to offer services to heart patients through visiting programs, support group meetings and educational forums. Our mission is to “inspire hope in heart disease patients and their families.”
Because Mended Hearts is made up of the very kinds of people it serves—heart patients, their families and others impacted by heart disease, its members draw on personal experience as they help others. Mended Hearts support groups help people understand that there can be a rich, rewarding life after heart disease. Members listen, share their experiences, learn from health care professionals and volunteer to talk to other heart patients about what they may face including lifestyle changes, depression, recovery and treatment.
Please join the Westbank Mended Hearts Chapter 373 on the second Monday of the month at 6:00pm for their
monthly social. The social is located at West Jefferson Medical Center Hospital - Hall of History - in the Gretna Classroom
and offers light refreshments, monthly educational lectures and a chance to share your experience with
former heart patients.
