Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is designed for people who have chronic lung disease. Its primary goal is to enable people to achieve and maintain their maximum level of independence. Although most pulmonary rehab participants have COPD, people with other types of lung disease may benefit as well. People of all ages can benefit. In addition to lung disease, the pulmonary rehab program has added a Post-COVID program for those who are still suffering from side effects of COVID.
Our program may improve quality of life by reducing shortness of breath, increasing exercise tolerance, promoting a sense of well-being, and decreasing the number of hospitalizations.
The program is designed to meet personal goals and needs of individual participants. Sessions are twice a week and run approximately 1 hour. If you’re interested, please contact your provider to see if you would qualify for these services.
