Heart Support Groups
You may benefit from sharing your experiences, support, and knowledge with other people living with heart disease.
ICD Support Group
The ICD support group is for patients with implantable defibrillators and their families. The group meets monthly, the second week Wednesday of the month at various times. Call (937) 208-4442 to confirm the meeting.
In addition to helping heart patients adapt to a new lifestyle after surgery or a cardiac event, our cardiac rehab program [Link to Cardiac Rehab page] gives patients psychological and educational support. The program offers ongoing education about topics such as diet, medications, new cardiac technology, and coping skills for dealing with a new cardiac diagnosis. The group of longtime patients, some of whom may be attending for many years, becomes like a family, supporting each other, planning outings, and forming lifelong friendships.
