Lifestyle Changes and Supportive Services
While some aspects of heart disease are hereditary, many conditions are preventable with lifestyle modification. Lifestyle changes can be initiated as an important element of the treatment plan for patients at risk for or diagnosed with heart disease. Women's Heart NY offers an integrative approach to patient care, providing various opportunities to help support their efforts to live a healthier lifestyle.
Diet and Nutritional Services
Nutritional Counseling: The Womenís Heart NY program provides one-on-one dietary counseling appointments with a certified registered dietitian to discuss healthy diet choices for your medical condition. Nutritional services are largely covered out of the program's generous outside funding. A nominal fee of $10 is requested, but waived if necessary.
Lectures: Periodic lectures focusing on heart-healthy eating and healthy cooking demonstrations are offered throughout the year.
The human body was built to stay healthy through stimulation and healthful stress; that means a regular regimen of exercise and movement. It is never too late, with the proper medical monitoring, to start exercising and help prevent or control heart disease. Womenís Heart NY provides our patients with various opportunities to begin a regular exercise routine.
Cardiac Rehabilitation: After a heart attack or heart surgery, a controlled, monitored rehabilitation program is an important part of care. Cardiac rehabilitation isnít only about exercise; it also includes education, counseling and learning about reducing your risk factors.
Workshops: Monthly lecture-demonstrations focusing on exercise are offered the third Saturday of every month. Women's Heart NY patients have access to exercise education at the Continuum Center for Health and Healing for a small program fee. Patients learn how to safely and efficiently use a fitness facility. Please visit our events page for details.
Women's Heart NY patients receive a discount at the McBurney YMCA. Please contact the program coordinator for details.
