Living with a long term chest condition

Staying fit and healthy is an important aspect of managing your health and wellbeing. If you have a long term chest condition like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Bronchiectasis or Pulmonary Fibrosis it may be more challenging or you may feel apprehensive about exercising due to your shortness of breath. However, it is just as important, if not more so, to remain as active as possible as this can help improve your quality of life and allow you to live better with your lung condition.

Winter Respiratory Programme

In partnership with NHS Grampian, Live Life Aberdeenshire has developed a programme specifically aimed at people with a lung condition whose ability to be active is affected by breathing difficulties including those with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Bronchiectasis or Pulmonary Fibrosis.

How does the programme work?

Live Life Aberdeenshire offers participants one to one support to help you build up your activity levels.  We will provide information and the opportunity to attend a virtual class online with one of our experienced instructors.  We are there to help build up your confidence and talk through any concerns you may have.
