The Lanark Renfrew Lung Health and Rehabilitation Program (LRLHP) consists of assessment, spirometry (breathing test), education, the development of an action plan and follow-up care for clients with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) or asthma. When someone is referred to the lung health program, they will be seen by a Registered Respiratory Therapist/Certified Respiratory Educator (CRE). The CRE will help you understand and manage your symptoms.

The Lanark Renfrew Lung Health Program also provides an 8-week long exercise exercise rehabilitation program (two days a week). It is an exercise program designed for people with COPD or with cardiac disease. The three components of a the exercise program include: exercise, education and support. Participating in the program is aimed to decrease symptoms and increase ability to function in daily life.
