Specialty programs

In addition to the care we provide all patients with heart and lung conditions, we also offer specialized care with our Keeping Hearts at Home and cardiopulmonary programs. These evidence-based specialty programs are designed to provide expert care, as well as the education, support and encouragement to help you become an expert too. Both programs provide support for patients with a wide range of conditions, including congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiac bypass surgery, hypertension, pneumonia and cardiac disease.

How do they work?

These programs take you from the first steps of stabilizing your condition all the way through to understanding your disease and ultimately helping you reach your individual goals. We confirm your medications, help you navigate medication changes and explain the role each medication plays in managing your condition. We assess the safety of your home and ensure access to adaptive equipment if needed. We also teach you how to monitor your condition and recognize changes that may impact your health sooner rather than later.

Our teams also provide practical everyday solutions to help you manage your condition. This can include a journal to record your daily progress, as well as motivation and guidance to help you make manageable lifestyle changes, like adopting a healthier diet and engaging in more physical activity. Our skilled clinicians may also use a range of innovative technologies to offer more advanced biometric monitoring.

Are our programs for you?

  • Are you over 65?
  • Have you been told you have heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension (high blood pressure) or pneumonia?
  • Have you had a heart attack or heart surgery?
  • Are you currently taking multiple medications to manage your heart or lung condition?
  • Are you experiencing any complications from your condition? 

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, our Keeping Hearts at Home or cardiopulmonary program could be for you.

Frequently asked questions

Home health is designed to help you recover in the comfort of your home through skilled nursing and physical, occupational and speech therapy. Your health care provider can order home health if he or she determines your condition requires you to remain in the home for rehab and recovery from illness, injury or surgery.

While you are receiving skilled care for your condition, Medicare may also cover a limited number of hours for a home health aide to assist you with the activities of daily living.

Home health may be covered 100% by Medicare for those who qualify, and we accept most forms of insurance. Part of the admission process includes verification of insurance. Our team is happy to help answer your financial and insurance questions. You can contact us here.
