Active Heart at Croí Heart and Stroke Centre

Living with Heart Disease – the road to recovery!

Have you recently been diagnosed with heart disease? Suffered a heart attack or stroke? Had a stent fitted or had bypass or heart valve surgery? If the answer is Yes to any of these questions, then you would benefit from attending a lifestyle and education programme called Active Heart focused on risk factor reduction and modification in the Croi Heart & Stroke Centre, Newcastle, Galway.

Following a new diagnosis of heart disease or after a recent cardiac event you are often left confused and may have lost your confidence and/or be struggling to get back to work or the normal activities of daily living. When you are discharged from hospital it’s difficult to know where to turn to for up to date advice, guidance and information on your condition.

Once you have been diagnosed with heart disease, it’s important to understand your condition and learn what lifestyle and other changes you need to make so as to reduce your risk of a future heart attack or stroke. Croi works towards promoting awareness of how to manage and reduce cardiovascular risk factors so as to reduce the likelihood of future events such as heart attack or stroke.

To book your place on the programme call Croí on (091) 544310
