Strong Offers Heart Failure Support Group

October 05, 1998

The Strong Heart support group joins patients suffering congestive heart failure together with families and caregivers in an informal setting which can promote physical and emotional health. Through this support group, participants build a clearer understanding of their condition, receive peer support in managing the illness, receive answers to questions about medications, diet and exercise, and improve their interaction with health providers.

The Strong Heart support group meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. in Conference Rooms A & B at Strong Memorial Hospital. Upcoming dates include:

November 5, 1998 Winter exercise – learn low impact exercises to keep fit and trim during cold winter days.

December 3, 1998 Dietitian and Gourmet Cook – learn to cook low fat, low salt snacks which can be served at holiday parties.
