Cardiac Wellness

Stay heart healthy and manage cardiac conditions.

Benefits

A strong, healthy heart is essential for living a long, active and independent life.

Our Cardiac Wellness program is led by qualified health professionals or Registered Nurses who help you to have any heart concerns assessed and diagnosed as early as possible. The program is based on the latest research and enables you to take control of your heart health.

Designed for older people who have cardiac health conditions or may be at risk of developing these in the future, the program provides you the tools and tips to make the changes needed to keep yourself and your heart well.

Taking steps to keep your heart healthy can never start too soon and by taking part in the Cardiac Wellness program you will benefit from recognising the early signs of heart disease and understanding what you can do in your day-to-day life to keep heart conditions at bay.
