Please note that the Helderberg Cardiac Support Group is not a medically qualified body. We do not give medical advice, offer a professional service or recommend any form of treatment. We are a group of heart patients who aim to offer mutual support, help and encouragement to other heart patients.

How We Help

The most disturbing aspect of heart desease is the uncertanty regarding symtoms and worry as to the future.

The greatest benefit to be obtained is to meet other people, apparently fit and leading a relatively full life and to find that they have experienced similar problems.

The intention is to provide support in the hospital and after the patient leaves hospital and to continue this through the recovery period.

Patients are encouraged to join the Support Group so they can receive ongoing advice and guidance, through professional speakers, leading to a greater understanding, increased confidence and a fuller life.

Some of our members feel that being involved with the Support Group has been the biggest single step to psychological recovery.

The Support Group is run by a committee with teams responsible for social, fund raising and welfare activities.
