It is difficult to live an active, independent life if you are struggling to breathe. It doesn't have to be that way.
At MultiCare Allenmore Hospital, we have designed an eight-week Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program for people with chronic respiratory diseases. An individualized program of education, exercise, and conditioning is provided to each participant by our experienced, multidisciplinary team. This team consists of Respiratory Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Nutrition Services, and a Pulmonary Nurse.
We believe family and close companions can be extremely important in achieving independence, and for this reason the rehabilitation team encourages family attendance.
Your participation requires a physician referral. The rehabilitation program at Allenmore includes not only treatment and education from our expert staff, but also the support and understanding of others, including a Maintenance Program and an Educational Support Group.
