Outpatient Respiratory Care Clinic

A rehabilitation program can help someone with the disease to become more educated on their illness, nutrition and coping skills. They learn to become more physically active and more fit, They also learn new ways to reduce shortness of breath. Rehabilitation can help you take control of the disease so it has less control over you.

  • Optimize your quality of life,
  • Reduce the intensity of symptoms,
  • Restore the highest possible level of functioning and sense of well being, and
  • Prevent or reduce hospitalizations.
