What can i do to help my heart health?
Did you know most of the things which contribute to the pogression of cardiovascular disease are preventable or able to be modified. These are referred to as risk factors and are important to address to reduce or stop the progression on cardiovascular diseases.
Why are prevention and rehabilitation programs important?
Your Cardiologist and GP will help you management some of your risk factors though medications.  It is well recongised the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease is also reliant upon you changing common lifestyle and behaviours which are recognised to individually reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and play an important complimentary role along side your  medications.  These include regular exercise and physical activity, modifing diet, and managing stress, anxiety and sleep.

" The team helped me through the post heart attack (anxiety) period, and I have found the confidence that I NOW have because I learnt so much from the education sessions, the exercise sessions and the many chats that they most generously have with us (the patients), when ever we need some reassurance. I know my situation was complicated by arthritic pains, but I also know that one of the biggest obstacles is confidently getting back to everyday life again. The program is set up perfectly to get us back on track!!! The entire staff are lovely, and so helpful "
