Types of Programs

As a member of Mended Hearts, you can begin reaching out to others through one of our programs:

Visiting Program – Reaching out with the support of local hospitals, trained volunteers serve heart patients by listening, sharing their own experiences, answering questions and empathizing with the anxiety and concern of patients and their families. Annually, volunteers make 200,000 visits to patients, family members and caregivers in hospitals, online and by phone.

Group Meetings – We offer regular group meetings where heart patients and families 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. We also invite healthcare professionals to present valuable information and answer questions.

Internet Visiting Program – Heart patients and Mended Hearts members are now linked over the World Wide Web! Trained volunteers communicate with heart patients through the Internet, using this technology to offer support, answer questions and help them locate resources.
