Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation helps clients to return to activities post a heart event or cardiac diagnosis and can prevent readmissions in the future.

What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?

Cardiac Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary program that provides education and graded supervised exercise program which follows the guidelines of the Heart Foundation. It helps clients to optimize their heart health, minimize further risk factors, and enhance self-management.

What is involved?

Each client will receive a comprehensive assessment conducted by the Cardiac nurse and an Exercise Physiologist.

Clients can then opt to attend an 8-week individualised and supervised exercise and education program.

At the completion of the 8 weeks the client will receive a review appointment conducted by the Exercise Physiologist.

If the client feels that a group is not for them, options like 1 on 1 sessions are available as well as home exercise programs. These discussions are had with the client at the initial appointment so we can tailor their rehab to get the best outcomes for the client.

The education sessions are presented by the Cardiac nurses, Exercise Physiologists, Dietitians, Podiatrists, Occupational therapists and the mental health team.

During the initial assessment the client’s needs are identified and referrals are made internally to services like Dietetics, Podiatry, diabetes education etc.

Who can use this service?
