Respiratory Rehabilitation

Preparing for a Virtual Appointment

Our Respiratory Rehabilitation Clinic helps people learn to control their breathing, manage their lung disease and exercise safely. The program consists of education and supervised exercise, and is offered three times per week over ten weeks.

After ten weeks, most of our clients are ready to exercise safely in the community. 

Our program is intended for people with chronic lung disease who have the potential to improve their health and independence through respiratory rehabilitation. Participants must be non-smokers or in the process of smoking cessation. Man on treadmill
