The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is designed for individuals with chronic lung diseases, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis and pulmonary fibrosis. The program includes supervised exercise classes and education sessions.
Participants generally attend the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program for 12 weeks.
Sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m., and last from 1 to 2 hours. Participants are advised to attend both sessions each week.
All sessions are conducted at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital.
Participants must be referred to the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program by their Family Physician or Specialist.
To help cover some of the costs for education materials, supplies, etc., participants are asked to pay a fee of $50. The fee is waived for those who do not feel they can afford it.
