Welcome to Chapter 62, Mended Hearts of San Diego
Mended Hearts, a national nonprofit organization, has been offering the gift of hope to heart disease patients, their families and caregivers for more than 60 years. Recognized for its role in facilitating a positive patient-care experience, Mended Hearts partners with hospitals and offers services to heart patients through visiting programs, support group meetings and educational forums. Our mission is to "inspire hope in heart disease patients and their families."
Because Mended Hearts is made up of the very kinds of people it serves---heart patients, their families, and others impacted by heart disease, its members draw on personal experience as they help others. Mended Hearts support groups help people understand that there can be a rich, rewarding life after heart disease. Members listen, share their experiences, learn from healthcare professionals and volunteer to talk to other heart patients about what they may face including lifestyle changes, depression, recovery and treatment.
Chapter 62 was chartered in 1970 as one of the first Mended Heart chapters west of the Mississippi. The chapter has experienced steady growth in membership and conducts an extensive visiting program. Accredited Visitors are now seeing patients in eight hospitals in the San Diego area. A satellite group is active in Carlsbad/Oceanside.
In October 2016 - Chapter 62 celebrates its 46th anniversary.
