Have you recently had a heart-related event? Have you been told that you are at risk of heart disease? Or do you want to reduce your risk of heart disease in the future? If so, then Cardiac rehabilitation might be for you!
After you are discharged from the hospital
Cardiac rehabilitation is a combination exercise and education program for all people who have had a recent cardiac event or anyone who is at a heightened risk of heart disease. The 10-week program is run by our Exercise Physiologist, is tailored to your needs and will see you attend the clinic twice per week for a total of 20 sessions. Each session consists of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise that is a combination of both aerobic and resistance training
What are the benefits of attending?
Cardiac rehabilitation can help increase your knowledge about heart health, improve your self-management and reduce the risk of further complications. There is an education component that accompanies the exercise that will help increase your understanding of heart disease.
How do I join?
Before being granted entry into the program, you are required to attend a 45-minute initial health assessment with our Exercise Physiologist to assess your readiness for the service
Do I need a referral?
Yes, you will need a referral from your GP. This referral must include your reason for referral, current and past medical history and any information related to your condition
