Patient feedback:

Pulmonary Rehabilitation Alderman Tye Scout Hut, Norton, Stourbridge

I attended Pulmonary Rehabilitation twice weekly from 24th November 2023 – 10th January, followed by a weekly Maintenance session for 6 weeks.

Although it had been suggested to me in the past, I had been reluctant thinking I would feel obliged to participate in activities I found too challenging & wouldn’t be able to do.

It turned out I actually enjoyed the sessions even when they were demanding & have certainly noticed the benefits. I am able to stretch & bend easier & am able to do more tasks at home without so many rests in between. There was always a warm up, stretching exercises, aerobics, simple activities on step, exercise bike, walking laps, cool down.

Then a relaxation element & useful information on managing & living with lung conditions. Reassuringly hand sanitiser was used at the start of each session and  oxygen levels tested

This is all down to the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team, who from the start were welcoming & encouraging so I didn’t feel in a competition or a failure. Their enthusiasm was a great motivation and the tasks were set out clearly with realistic goals. When my limit was reached, I wasn’t pushed beyond what was felt safe for me. The other people at the sessions were also putting their best effort in however they were feeling & treating it all with good humour. Overall the sessions did not feel pressurised & there was opportunity for rests & quick chats.

Thank you Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team for creating a friendly atmosphere to help people benefit.
