Building your support network
Breaking old habits and learning new ones can be stressful, but family members and friends can make a dramatic difference in your recovery process. They can give you the emotional support you need to help you adjust to a new, healthier lifestyle. We encourage family involvement and invite interested family members to participate in the patient's education sessions.
You and your family may also benefit from the support of others who have heart disease. There are many local support groups that may be of help. Web links to many of these resources are available on this page.
