Online Cardiac Rehabilitation at BHN
Did you know that only approximately 25% of people who would benefit from cardiac rehabilitation are actually referred?!? thats a lot of people who are unable to live their lives to their full potential! Seeing as most of us are social distancing, Bayside Health Nook are proud to offer an alternative model of rehabilitation following a cardiac event or known heart disease. We achieve this through online guided, supervised group based physical activity, health education, counselling, behaviour modification strategies and support for self-management. We use simple, readily available technology to monitor your performance for safety and progress management. Some of the aims of cardiac rehabilitation are to maximise the clients physical, psychological and social functioning to enable people with cardiac disease to lead fulfilling lives with confidence. The major secondary aim is to reduce future cardiac events by encouraging healthy behavioural and lifestyle changes. These programs are available to anyone, irrespective of your geographical location, so if you are interested in joining one of our programs, please get in touch, or speak to your GP or cardiac specialist. You will need a clearance to participate, and a full readiness assessment will be completed prior to commencement of the program.
