Boca Raton Regional Hospital Forms Mended Hearts Chapter

BOCA RATON, FL – April 11, 2017 – Boca Raton Regional Hospital is pleased to announce the formation of a Mended Hearts™ chapter in Boca Raton.

Mended Hearts is a national organization that has been offering the gift of hope to heart disease patients, their families and caregivers for 65 years. Recognized for its role in facilitating a positive patient-care experience, the organization partners with 460 plus hospitals and rehabilitation clinics and offers services to heart patients through visiting programs, support group meetings and educational forums.

Their mission is to inspire hope and improve the quality of life for heart patients and their families through ongoing peer-to-peer support.

Mended Hearts is made up of the kind of people it serves — heart patients, their families and others impacted by heart disease, allowing its members to draw on personal experience as they help others. Its support groups help people understand that there can be a rich, rewarding life after heart disease. Members listen, share their experiences, learn from healthcare professionals and volunteer to talk to other heart patients about what they may face including lifestyle changes, depression, recovery and treatment. Mended Hearts volunteers make visits to patients, family members and caregivers in hospitals, online and by phone.

If you are interested in joining the support group or you would like to help others affected by heart disease, email Mended Hearts of Boca Raton is supported by the charitable intentions of Dr. Allan & Eileen Kaplan.
