Brockville Cardiovascular Program
Cardiac rehabilitation is an individualized program of exercise, education and counseling designed to help you live a healthier lifestyle and reduce your risk of future heart events and health problems. Cardiac rehabilitation is "the sum of activities required to ensure the individual’s best possible physical, psychological, social, vocational and emotional status so that individuals may, by their own efforts, resume and maintain an optimal quality of life within the context of their family and their community.”
This program is not funded by the government.
Events that support this program:
- Heart & Solstice
- Shoppers Drug Marts’ Growing Women’s Health Campaign
When I joined the Cardiac Rehab program, I was surprised to discover that it was totally community-funded. I believe that the program is a very valuable one for this area, so I wanted to see what I could do to help, and proposed a curling bonspiel to the team and the Foundation. I am glad they said “Yes” and am really looking forward to a successful fundraising event!
