This program is for those who have experienced a cardiac event or have cardiac conditions, including but not limited to heart attack, cardiomegaly, stent placement, mitral valve replacement, bypass surgery, or coronary artery disease. Classes involve supervised exercise at the Renaissance Seniors Centre, as well as educational components about living a heart healthy lifestyle. Patients are generally told by their physicians that a cardiac rehabilitation program may be of benefit to them upon discharge from hospital, but they are also able to self refer and be assessed to see if they qualify. Classes are twice weekly, for 16 sessions.
