Mended Hearts Support Group Returns to Grants Pass 

Asante Three Rivers Medical Center is pleased to announce its local chapter of Mended Hearts is restarting. The first meeting will be on Wednesday, Jan. 17 from 3-4 p.m. in the Cardiac Rehab Department gym at 520 SW Ramsey Ave., Ste 103 (on the Asante Three Rivers campus).

“We are so pleased to offer Mended Hearts again,” said Kristina Snyder, supervisor of cardiac rehabilitation at Asante Three Rivers. “Rehabilitation can help people heal physically. Mended Hearts helps them heal emotionally.”

Heart disease, heart attacks, heart surgery — these are life-changing challenges many people in our community face every day. When a person suffers a heart event or needs cardiac surgery, it’s easy to become fearful and stressed. That’s where Mended Hearts comes in.

Mended Hearts is a national and community non-profit volunteer organization composed of heart health survivors who offer support and camaraderie to people undergoing acute heart issues. They come alongside patients and families to share hope, education and encouragement. Their support is especially meaningful because volunteers speak from a personal perspective, having been through their own heart attack or heart surgery.

New heart patients find comfort in meeting “veteran” heart patients who have lived to tell the tale and can encourage them—from experience—that life after heart trauma is filled with hope.

Volunteers visit heart patients before and after surgery and throughout their rehabilitation. They help ease anxiety, offer resources, and answer questions about the journey toward recovery.

Mended Hearts will meet monthly on the third Wednesday from 3-4 p.m. For more information on how you can get involved, call (541) 472-7850 or go to
