Redditch Hale and Hearties Heart Support Group
Redditch Hale and Hearties History
Redditch Hale and Hearties was established around May 1997 as a heart support group (The original name was Redditch Hale and Hearties Coronary Support Group), providing phase 4 exercise classes.
Phase 1 (Acute) is in hospital shortly after your cardiac event;
Phase 2 (sub acute) Hospital outpatient rehab, first few weeks;
Phase 3 (Intensive out patient therapy) the latter stage of your hospital rehab program;
Phase 4 (Independent Ongoing Conditioning) Joining a club which offers a heart patient centered exercise program.
The initial exercise venue was at the Oakenshaw centre in Redditch (Friday afternoon sessions).
Two more venues then opened, another in Redditch at 'Community House' in Easemore road (Wednesday evening exercise session) which is also where we have our bi-monthly meetings, and one at the Bromsgrove scout hut on the Kidderminster road (Friday morning exercise sessions).
