Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
This 3 month program will benefit patients with a recent cardiac event with the goal of reducing risk of heart problems and behaviour modification to promote a healthier lifestyle. The education component involves personalized assessments and learning sessions with a chance to ask questions, and an exercise prescription suited to your current fitness level. To be considered for the program, please contact your Family Doctor and express your interest in the program.
Regular Heart Health Services
A Registered Nurse assists patients in understanding the lifestyle factors that affect their heart health and how they can make changes to reduce their risk for cardiovascular disease. One on one visits with the registered nurse allow for patients to gain a better understanding of how they can make heart healthy choices through education, support, and follow up. Patients will have the opportunity to have their blood pressure assessed and cholesterol numbers reviewed. Additional referrals for diabetes, smoking cessation, exercise, stress management, and dietary support, are available as needed.
If you feel this program would be beneficial, please contact your family doctor’s office or the Stratford Family Health Team at 519-271-7172.
