Cardiac Rehab Prevention Programs

Helping you stay healthy

The best approach to cardiac health is to never develop a problem at all. These prevention-oriented programs can help you and your loved ones focus on wellness, not sickness.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) support group

This program helps patients and families adjust to life after ICD surgery, to help familiarize you with living with your ICD, and to answer any questions you may have.

Preventive exercise programs

Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation at Unity offers a special Preventive Exercise Program (P.E.P.) , a self-pay program can help you control or prevent chronic conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, fibromyalgia and weight issues. You’ll exercise under the guidance of highly trained nurses and exercise physiologists in a state-of-the-art facility, and learn how to identify and respond to risk factors that can affect your long-term health.

Exercise promotes well-being and longevity, and its benefits include:

  • Improving fitness/health
  • Strengthening muscles
  • Lowering blood sugar
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Promoting weight loss
  • Reducing body fat
  • Increasing metabolism
  • Helping with stress management

Personal training

Unity also offers a personal  training option. Your consultation will include a discussion of your brief medical history, girth measurements or body composition and weight, exercise goals and tailored exercise programming. This is a one-on-one consultation that allows for personalized attention. To take advantage of this special exercise program or to learn more, call 585.368.4374.

Senior exercise programs

Seniors have special exercise needs when it comes to exercise, and two local health insurance providers have developed programs specifically designed for older adults. These programs grant complementary access to Unity’s Cardiac Rehabilitation facility during normal business hours. Please contact your insurer to see if you are eligible for these programs.
