In brief: Education
A big part is education and learning how to live with heart failure.
Dietary changes, medication education, symptoms to watch for. It may involve helping you to get active again as well. Each program is different but they typically will give you an overview on the first day.

In brief: Aerobic exercise
Treatment of congestive heart failure in general involves medications, proper diet, and exercise to increase stamina.
The diet generally should be salt restricted and with adequate nutritional value, the exercise should be mostly aerobic and the medications are really dependent on the underlying disease leading to heart failure and the type of heart failure.
