Cardio Program

At Northwest Home Health and Rehabilitation, our care team assists each cardiac patient to return to their optimal state of health. The Care Team may include:

  • Registered Nurses who specialize in Cardiovascular care
  • Physical or Occupational Therapists
  • Medical Social Workers
  • Diet and Nutrition Specialists
  • Home Health Aides

Each visit, the patient receives a comprehensive assessment and education geared to their learning style. Working with the direction of your cardiologist and cardiac surgeon, our knowledgeable team will teach the patient and their family:

  • Diet (Mediterranean, no added salt, low fat, low cholesterol)
  • Cardiac medications
  • Excercise and life style changes

By reducing post op infections and preventing readmissions to the hospital, we help the patient heal in an environment they know.
