Novel intensive self-management education and exercise program of four weeks
Behavioral: Exercise adherence
The exercise program includes endurance and strength training and warm-up and cool-down strategies. Emphasis is placed upon implementing and adhering to the exercise program at home following intervention completion.
Behavioral: Self-management- prevention of illness
Instruction is provided regarding key elements of managing heart failure and COPD with emphasis upon individual adaptations to prevent exacerbations, unscheduled provider visits, and hospital admissions as well as promotion of daily activity.
Behavioral: Self-management of illness
This component of the intervention stresses the use of an action plan that is implemented to c-manage bouts of mild illness and to identify symptoms of more serious illness, including appropriate actions.
No Intervention: Usual care
Usual care- cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation exercise program of 8 weeks duration
- Function Capability [ Time Frame: 6 months ]6MWT-Six Minute Walk Test
- Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 6 months ]SF-36 PCS. Scale range 0-100, higher scores reflect higher quality of life. PCS=Physical Composite Score. These are not change scores.
