Health & Wellness at the Workplace
Cardiometabolic and cardiovascular diseases such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, heart attack and stroke are the leading cause of death and disability in India and across the world today. Lifestyle risk factors, such as inadequate exercise, unhealthy diet, chronic psychosocial stress and abuse of tobacco and alcohol, are so rampant in the developing countries that these ailments are looming as major threats to health. No longer a disease of the elderly alone, there is an alarming trend of young men and women in the midst of an exciting career path falling prey to these killer diseases.
As prevention and rehabilitation through intensive lifestyle modification is the cornerstone in the fight against this growing epidemic, Cardiac Wellness Institute has designed a health and wellness program that is conducted for employees at their workplace. Various healthcare professionals like Physician, Physiotherapist, Dietitian, Counseling Psychologist and Yoga Instructor will provide sessions at regular intervals with an aim to positively impact the health-related behaviour and thereby reduce the physical and mental risk-factors amongst employees. The program is customized to meet the requirements of individuals and organisations.
Only by being aware of the causes of heart disease,their warning signs and the complications that can arise, people get the motivation and confidence to take preventive measures. We at Cardiac Wellness Institute strive to spread awareness about cardiovascular diseases by various means such as newspaper write-ups, television interviews, blog articles and social media.
We actively engage in awareness programs at educational institutions, corporate companies and government and non-governmental organizations. During the 60-90 minutes program, a large number of audience are educated, using audiovisual presentations, about the basics of preventing heart diseases. The interative Question & Answer session at the end of the program is extremely valuable to the audience as they get first hand scientific explanations and answers to all their health related queries.

Health education and counseling
We offer group education sessions focused on the causes and management of cardiovascular diseases followed by individual counseling aimed at addressing specific issues faced by the participants. Students, caretakers, family members of heart patients, and paramedics are some groups of people who feel enlightened and empowered by this unique service of ours. We also focus on prevention of sudden cardiac death due to genetic diseases of the heart.
Heart-Lung disease support groups
We cater to the emotional and psychological needs of patients with heart diseases by providing them group interaction sessions. There is abundant scientific evidence to show that people tend to share their emotions and experiences with others who are in a similar situation. Not only does this enable them to overcome feelings of stress, depression and loneliness, but it also helps them understand the importance of behavior change and the concept of lifelong healthy choices when in a group.
