What is PACE?

The Pace program is helping local people with heart and lung conditions to improve their health and wellbeing.

The PACE program offers one on one assessments, education sessions, exercise classes and individualised home based exercise plans.  PACE is conducted by and supervised by professionals.

Programs like PACE are implemented worldwide by skilled health professionals. These programs are well recognised by doctors such as respiratory specialists and cardiologists as detailed research has shown that by completing the programs, participants can significantly improve their quality of life.
