Family members are important to the HeartSmart program. Family participation and support plays an incredibly important role in your recovery and continued good health. Your partner or spouse can exercise with you or simply provide encouragement and support.
Family members can encourage you to finish the HeartSmart program, join you in a healthier diet and remind you to take your medication. They can also monitor your mood and wellbeing. Involving your family can increase your likelihood of achieving your goals.
