Cardiac rehabilitation is an option for people of all ages and with many forms of heart disease. In particular, you may benefit from cardiac rehabilitation if your medical history includes:

  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart failure
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Chest pain (angina)
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Certain congenital heart diseases
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Angioplasty and stents
  • Heart transplant
  • Heart valve replacements

Don't let older age hold you back from joining a cardiac rehabilitation program. Even if you're older than 65, you're likely to benefit from cardiac rehabilitation.
