Counseling and stress reduction can be important parts of good heart
health and your cardiac rehab program. Professional counselors and peers
involved in the program can provide you with emotional support while you make
these necessary lifestyle changes.
Getting back to work after a heart problem (such as a heart attack or
heart surgery) is an important goal for most people. Most people are able to
return to their current job, although some people will need to change the type
of work they do. A job counselor can help you get ready to return to work at
your current job or help you find training needed to change jobs.
