A Therapeutic Program To Support And Improve Lung Function
This program is separate from our Older Adult Day Program. The Breathe Well Live Well Program is a therapeutic program to support and improve lung function. The Program is designed to help you gain knowledge of your lung disease, manage your breathing challenges, and improve your exercise tolerance. In turn, this will help you achieve your optimal ability to carry out activities of daily living, regain independence and improve your overall quality of life.
- The Breathe Well Live Well Program takes place on Tuesdays from 1 pm to 3 pm at the Perth Enrichment Program location.
- We have enjoyed offering the Breathe Well Live Well Program in Smiths Falls this past Fall and are hoping to be able to run a 6 week program again in February. Call the office for details.
- Cost for the program is $15.00 per day which includes a light snack.
Who Is The Program Geared Towards?
Those who would benefit from this program are those whose lives are affected by impaired lung function due to: COPD, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Chronic Bronchitis, lung transplant, emphysema or chronic asthma.
