About Cardiac Rehabilitation


Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically supervised programme of exercise and information sessions, which are proven to improve the health and well being of people who have suffered the effects of heart problems.

 

Cardiac rehab is a vital part of the recovery from heart problems. More people are surviving the effects of heart disease but the quality of life experienced by these people often depends upon whether they attended a cardiac rehabilitation programme following a cardiac event. Heartsure offers people the opportunity to re-build confidence, gain an understanding of what has happened and what can be done in the future to reduce the risk of it happening again.
