Hospital VisitorThe foundation of Mended Hearts is its hospital visiting program. Visitors, with the support of hospitals, serve heart patients. As a visitor, you are there to listen and share your own experiences, empathizing with the anxiety and concern of patients and their families. To become a visitor you must:
  1. Be a heart patient or the family member of a heart a patient
  2. You must become a Mended Hearts member
  3. Complete the MHI accreditation training
Mended Hearts trained and accredited visitors continue to report that visiting heart patients, families and caregivers is one of the most rewarding experiences they have been involved in.
Chapter Support Leader Chapter leaders facilitate meetings which provide an educational environment for heart patients to communicate with others who are coping with heart disease. Chapter leaders are also responsible for the daily functions of the chapter. To become a chapter support leader you must become a Mended Hearts member.
Health Information Leader If you are a healthcare professional, you can volunteer to attend group meetings to provide valuable information and answer questions that members and patients may have. As a health information leader, you will need to have a strong interest in helping heart patients increase their knowledge of heart disease and develop a healthier lifestyle.
Newsletter Editor Members receive a monthly newsletter on all activities that have taken place and upcoming events. As the editor you will review, format and type the monthly newsletter. Anyone interested in helping chapters keep their members informed can be an editor.
