Getting the Support you need
Having a heart attack can affect the whole family. Families are able to attend the Unit and see how their relatives are recovering and to talk to others who have gone through similar problems. Carers can also be assessed and given an exercise programme to support patients whilst they are on their own programme.
On a regular basis at the Unit, community dietitians give talks to patients and their partners who wish to take advice on healthy eating, medication, relaxation, exercise and general advice.
We also have a Heart Support Group which you can join which regularly puts on talks, activities and events for you to enjoy.
