Breathehappy Thursday Walk

30 minute walks of varying levels of difficulty suitable for people with lung or heart conditions.  

Sessions are on Thursday afternoons starting at 1pm at Rotary house in Corbett avenue Droitwich.

We meet inside Rotary house and then walk through the garden into the lovely Lido park. Routes are tailored to ANY ability and walk leaders will help build the confidence of those who are anxious.

Walk starts in a community hall and Indoor exercises are performed when the weather is bad.

Refreshments follow the walk.

Do you struggle with breathlessness caused by a chronic health condition for example COPD, bronchiectasis, asthma, heart failure etc?

Does your breathlessness affect your walking?

Does your breathlessness make you and / or your family anxious and / or frightened?

If you answered yes to the above questions and you want to do something to improve your health then this group is for you!  The group is run by a trained specialist respiratory nurse. The walks are geared towards the individual ability of each participant - even if they can only walk a few steps or are taking oxygen! After the walking session there are refreshments and discussion about managing chronic breathlessness. Carers are also extremely welcome.
