Who We Are
Are you looking for a good cardiac rehab experience that offers heart-healthy information online and in monthly meetings?
Have you been advised by your medical team that you could benefit from a cardiac support group with other men and women who are recovering from a heart-related incident?
Healthy Hearts Peterborough could be just what you’re looking for.
Our members share a common interest in maintaining heart-healthy lifestyles. Many have participated in a cardiac rehabilitation program. Some members are actively working at avoiding future heart difficulties by learning about and practicing heart-healthy activities, enjoying proper and satisfying nutrition while learning more about cardiovascular disease.
We exist to help each other and our family members stay on track with heart-healthy lifestyles.
Our group is not run by or sanctioned by any hospital or rehabilitation facility. While our group may be supported by a hospital, rehabilitation facility or health care agency from time to time, our activities are not managed by those agencies.
We may share educational information, but we do not offer medical advice other than sharing accredited, publicly available information on heart health topics.
If you are looking for medical attention for heart health related issues, our group is not the right starting point. If you are seeking medical advice about a health condition, please consult with your health care team. Your team can direct you to a suitable rehab program. Our members have all sought previous medical attention for cardiovascular related issues. They are now focused on staying on track with the educational and emotional support of our group.
Here’s What We Do
Our purpose is to provide each other with peer support to stay on track with heart-healthy lifestyle choices. We accomplish this through the following activities:
- Help each other remain motivated
- Continue our learning about heart health
- Promote and practice heart-healthy nutrition
- Learn about common feelings experienced when in cardiac rehab
- Share our successful experiences with other members
- Encouraging families and friends to support our rehab activities
