Cardiac Rehab at Home

The road to recovery following a cardiac event can take time. Our goal is to support you along the way.

Research has shown cardiac rehab reduces the risk of further cardiac events and hospital readmission. Our program is designed to provide support, education and guidance on exercise, nutrition and emotional well-being.

Cardiac rehab is designed to help you get back to your previous activities and we will personalize your therapy plan to help achieve your personal goals. We look forward to working with you!

At your follow up appointment you will be given an exercise prescription. Prior to that visit please review your packet and complete the physical fitness assessment, patient health questionnaire and goal sheet.
