When you have chronic lung disease, exercise is an important part of your treatment. You may wonder how you can exercise without becoming short of breath. The answer is, you can’t. But this isn’t necessarily bad. Shortness of breath is a sign that you’re pushing yourself. And pushing yourself now means you’ll be able to do more in the future. The steps on this sheet will help you get started.

"I pre-booked by stay prior to my surgery at Yale. I have a beautiful clean private room at The Pines at Bristol. The therapy is wonderful and made sure I had all the tools I needed to get me going from beginning to end. Therapy is 7 days a week and everything that was promised to me when I pre-booked was true."
I had such a great stay and the rehab went so well after my first knee surgery, that when I needed my other knee worked on, I decided to come back to The Pines at Bristol. Everyone here is extremely friendly in all departments. The therapy and nursing was so great that I was in and out within a week. I would recommend The Pines at Bristol to anyone needing a rehab stay.
My grandma, Dorothy Gagne', Room 209, was a patient at The Pines from June 2013 until Sept 10, 2013 when she passed away. I wanted to take a moment to thank the staff on the second floor for everything they did for her while she was there especially during her final hours. From the care they provided to her to the compassion they showed our family when she quietly passed away is something that I will never forget. So, to the nurses, aides and all those from the hospice staff, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My grandma meant the world to me and I take great comfort in knowing that she was in your caring hands during the last few months of her life.
"Words cannot explain how lovely my stay has been. The staff is so friendly and professional and I would recommend The Pines at Bristol Center for Health and Rehabilitation to anyone wanting to get back on their feet and home. The highly skilled team met my individual needs with all the amenities and services that made me comfortable."
"I was told by family that The Pines at Bristol Center for Health and Rehabilitation was the best rehabilitation facility in Bristol and they were right. Everyone is always so pleasant and has a smile or just a ‘good morning’ for you. Whenever I needed assistance, I put the nurse call light on and the response was quick."
"I came to The Pines at Bristol before, as part of their Passport Rehabilitation Program. I pre-booked my stay with them - and now I am here again on my second "pre-book." I take notes every day on what I do and who helps me. After looking over my notes, I see how many wonderful thoughts I had during my stay and how many great folks partook in caring for me and my needs. There are too many people to even mention here, but thanks to the CNAs, nurses and therapy team, especially! I will tell my friends this is the place to come if they ever need help. I will come back too. You have a super team. God Bless all of them.
