Where Your Heart Matters

Taking cardiac rehab seriously at Life Care Center of Ocala

An amazing 115,200 times. That’s how many times the average adult heart beats per day.

But when a cardiac condition threatens those normal heartbeats, the right recovery program can make all the difference.

We celebrate Valentine’s Day this month, but February is about more than cupids and chocolates. It also marks National Heart Month and is the perfect time to remember that taking care of your health—and your heart—is the best way to enjoy life with those you love.

So when life includes the challenge of recovering from a cardiac event, it only makes sense to seek out the best care so you—or your loved one—can have the most positive outcome.

The Rapid Recovery Units at Life Care Center of Ocala are committed to providing all necessary rehabilitation procedures to ensure a smooth transition of care each step of the way.

“We’re capable of managing patients who have had open heart surgery to include coronary artery bypass and valve replacements. We take pride in our level of expertise and commitment when implementing clinical interventions, such as managing patients’ LifeVest® or evaluating cardiac rhythms utilizing telemetry heart monitors. We aim for holistic heart health and the best possible outcome. We can admit patients directly from the hospital, and we offer both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation with 24-hour skilled care for the safest transition home,” explains Desiree Holder, nurse, director of business development with Life Care Center of Ocala.

The experienced providers at Life Care Center of Ocala partner with the patients’ own physicians for high-quality collaboration of care throughout the recovery process. Highly trained nursing and therapy personnel work with patients according to their individual needs. Their efforts include reducing heart disease risk factors, improving quality of life, outlook and emotional stability, and helping patients have greater understanding and ability to better manage their condition.

Recovery doesn’t take a day off, and the skilled team at Life Care Center of Ocala knows this. That’s why therapy services are offered seven days a week and, more importantly, are customized to each patient. There is even dietician support for heart-healthy lifestyle changes.
