New group aims to heal hearts

A new group, formed by those who've experienced a cardiac event, hopes to heal hearts in Waukesha County.

It's a newly recognized Mended Hearts chapter, the second ever chapter in Wisconsin. They've announced that their first meeting will be this Sunday.

The Jan. 13 meeting will be at Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital in the Fowler Lake Room from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.

Calvin Langmade, a local psychologist, is the guest speaker for the evening. He will lead discussion focusing on the depression and anxiety that often accompanies major cardiac events. Langmade, who has been diagnosed with a coronary heart disease, will offer strategies and tips for coping with stress. 

The event is free and open to the public. Anyone with heart problems, or their loved ones and caretakers, are invited. 

The Waukesha Mended Hearts Chapter #384 plans on hosting support groups once a month on the second Sunday. The group was created largely in part by City of Oconomowoc  mGlenn Welnak, who has also experienced cardiac rehab.

"It's huge to have support from people who know what you're going through," said Cheryl Claude, Lead RN in Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation at Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital.
