Celebrating World COPD Day
The regular Better Breathing Programme exercise and coffee morning has taken on a celebratory air, with previous speakers invited to join the festivities to mark World COPD Day (15 November 2017).
Pauline Mohi, lead organiser in the exercise and coffee morning sessions, knows just how important getting together is.
“Having these sessions available is really important – I’ve had some people tell me these sessions are their only link to the outside world.
“Some people have improved so much. While I’m talking away they are not thinking about what exercises they are doing – they are engaging and enjoying.”
The Better Breathing Programme is a pulmonary rehabilitation programme offered free in the community. It includes education and exercise sessions designed to equip people with respiratory conditions like COPD to manage their condition.
