YMCA Healthy Heart is a community-based cardiac prevention, rehabilitation and maintenance program, in partnership with the Fraser Health Authority and local health agencies. Since 1976, the YMCA Healthy Heart Program (formerly known as the YMCA CARE Program) has been providing a structured program for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. It is designed to help cardiovascular patients and those at risk of developing heart disease live longer and improve the quality of their lives.
We can help patients identify and reduce their risk through an individually designed program including:
- Patient education
- Individualized exercise prescription and testing
- Medically supervised exercise classes
- Nutrition counseling with Registered Dietitian
- Assistance in lipid management
- Weight management
- Assistance in diabetic management
- Resources for stress management and smoking cessation
