Vascular Health Program

What is the Vascular Health program?

For members living with peripheral vascular disease (PVC), this program can identify small and achievable changes to help better manage the condition and reduce the risk of future complications.

How does it work?

This program aims to put you in charge of your health, with the assistance of a personal health coach who will support you over a six-month period.

Together with your health coach, you will identify the small, achievable changes you can make to better manage your condition in the present, as well as reduce your risk of future complications.

Your health coach will also make sure you ‘know your numbers’ and help you understand the various blood tests, measurements and check-ups that are recommended. You will also learn how best to manage your medications and what they mean for you.

In addition, the program can help you

  • increase your quality of life through risk factor modification
  • improve your circulation, which can decrease leg pain symptoms
  • increase your exercise tolerance
  • increase your overall endurance and muscle strength
  • reduce your risks of complications
