Wellness Center therapy gymWyandot Memorial offers a multitude of health and wellness services through the Population Health and Wellness Department in our Wellness Center.

Some services include Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, our diabetic self-management services, Living With Diabetes program, various support groups, the Matter of Balance program, and wellness gym membership services and SilverSneaker partnership.

Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Cardiac or Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a physician-ordered, medically-supervised program of exercise, emotional and social support with lifestyle modifications to help the heart and lungs regain strength. Rehabilitation reduces the risks of cardiovascular disease, improves pulmonary function and decreases mortality while providing a safe environment.

Our cardiac and pulmonary team rehabilitation team include our medical director, a registered nurse and an exercise physiologist. All staff members are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and work together to determine blood pressure, interpret EKG monitoring and to further advance each patient. Continuous EKG monitoring is available based on your ordered diagnosis and insurance coverage. This program lasts approximately 12 weeks as advised by the ordering physician.

Diabetic Education

The mission of the Diabetic Team at this facility is to partner with the diabetic patient, physician and patient’s family to provide quality and comprehensive diabetes self-management education and tools. This will include empowering the patient to better manage his or her disease, improve their quality of life and prevent complications of diabetes.

The goals of the Diabetic Team are to provide knowledge and skill training, help individuals identify barriers to treatment, teach problem solving and coping skills to achieve self-management, and behavior change as needed. Diabetic Team members include the patient and family, primary care practitioner, diabetic teaching nurse, pharmacist, dietician, and exercise physiologist.

The diabetic teaching nurse works with each unique individual to identify his or her needs related to diabetes self-management. Education needs, behavioral goals and follow-up plans are established after a review of the physician’s health assessment, completion of a nurse assessment and review of a complete foot exam.

  • Living with Diabetes offers diabetic self-management education training and support. Living with Diabetes is a 6-hour physician-ordered, multidisciplinary educational course with yearlong follow-up by the diabetic teaching nurse. After the full year, Medicare patients are eligible for two hours of continued nursing education per year if order by the physician.
  • Individual education is offered for patients with special needs such as vision problems, hearing deficits, physical limitations, cognitive impairment, and language limitations.
