Why refer a patient to us?
Patients leave hospital after an exacerbation and receiving acute pulmonary rehabilitation however only a few go on to participate in adequate long-term rehabilitation at home or in their local community.
This results in decreased energy, strength, stamina and quality of life… and leads to further exacerbations. It becomes a cycle. Some local pulmonary rehabilitation is offered, but more often in a clinical environment, which itself brings on anxiety and breathlessness for individuals with COPD.
OneLife Health are a specialist group of Clinical Exercise Physiologists and Kinesiologists with experience in the community helping those with chronic disease.
We are knowledgeable in COPD rehabilitation and offer a program that combines simple and effective movements, breathing, relaxation and behaviour change techniques to COPD patients to allow them to live life well.
If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.
