Pulmonary rehabilitation is a far-reaching treatment incorporating exercise, education and behavioural intervention to help those with chronic lung disease. Pulmonary rehabilitation helps people suffering from Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disorder (COPD), long COVID, post-intubation symptoms and much more to enjoy an improved quality of life and function.
Types of Care Offering Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Pulmonary rehabilitation may incorporate minor, moderate or intensive activity programmes. Programmes include training, health education, breathing techniques, nutritional guidance, and smoking cessation support to name a few.
Acute care is a branch of secondary healthcare where a patient receives active but short-term treatment for a severe injury or episode of illness, an urgent medical condition, or during recovery from surgery.
Sub-acute care is care provided in a hospital environment – typically after an acute hospital or Intensive Care Unit stay. Sub-acute care and rehabilitation facilities differ from intensive care environments in that they are led by allied discipline clinicians supported by medical generalists focusing on rehabilitation.
Outpatient healthcare services are medical care services provided to people after they’ve returned to their home environment. At Faircape Health, we pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence in providing outpatient healthcare services in a world class setting with state-of-the-art equipment on a consultation basis.
Our long term care services provide ongoing care and support to those no longer living independently. This type of care is highly individualised and emphasises the inherent worth of the individual and the centrality of human values.
At Faircape Health, we provide specialised, compassionate care for people nearing the end of their life, or in the advanced stage of a terminal illness. End-of-life care involves a range of possible decisions, including patients’ rights and choice of medical interventions.
Clinical evidence shows that treatment outcomes are best when treatment is administered by an MDT incorporating a variety of practitioners. At Faircape Health, we bring together healthcare professionals from different fields to collaborate on treatment plans for optimal clinical outcomes in the sub-acute and outpatient care settings. Primary and allied healthcare practitioners combine their specialities to administer the most comprehensive treatment plans available.
Our pulmonary rehabilitation treatment regimens do not focus exclusively on disease, but rather on optimising wellness, and function. Following an initial complex assessment, the treating physiotherapist will develop a custom-tailored treatment plan to improve quality of life, exercise tolerance and overall physical functioning for optimal outcomes.
