Heart Care Mentors
The Heart Care Mentors are volunteers from the Isle of Wight
Heart Care Club working together with the NHS to help cardiac
patients and their carers through encouragement and support
in their journey toward recovery and rehabilitation.
Their aim is to support those who, through a heart event, may
feel anxious and vulnerable.
Carers of Cardiac patients may also have special needs as
they are perhaps suddenly and unexpectedly required to take
on a role for which they may feel unprepared.
Heart Care Mentors aim to promote positive recovery by
encouraging clients to adopt a healthy lifestyle and to provide
opportunities for social contact and supervised exercise.
