Welcome to the Helderberg Cardiac Support Group

Site last updated on 11th October 2019

The Helderberg Cardiac Support Group is a non-profit making group, run and supported by volunteers that have come through the process of heart surgery, or are waiting for the treatment for many different types of cardiac disease.

The object of the Cardiac Support Group is to boost morale of both patient and their family by providing support, guidance and advice, thropugh professional speakers, so that together, they can face the future with confidence and understanding.

The group meets every second month on a Wednesday evening in the Training and Development Room at the Vergelegen Medi-Clinic, meetings start at 5.30pm and generally run through to around 7.00pm.

Special events include a seminar which, apart from the educational value, allows the group an opportunity to socialise with others who share similar conditions.

The Aims

Establish and maintain contact with patients who have heart problems, and their families.

Offer mutual support and help.

Provide ongoing advice and guidance from professional speakers.

Arrange support meetings and social events.

Support cardiac pre-op and rehabilitation programmes to the benefit of cardiac patients.

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.
