COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and is a long-term chronic condition, often caused by smoking. (Learn more here)

Asthma Waikato provides a support group for anyone suffering from chronic asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema or other long-term respiratory illness. Chronic respiratory illness can become quite debilitating and isolating for sufferers and our group provides people with a place to exercise, gain support from one another and develop life-long friendships.

Asthma Waikato COPD Support Group

The group meets at:

Beerescourt Bowling Club, 68 Maeroa Road, Hamilton on Wednesdays at 1.15pm.

After a greeting at the door, support group attendees enjoy an exercise class for about 45 minutes, facilitated by a fitness instructor. Participants can join in as much or as little as they are able to. Exercises are done to music and are varied, interesting and fun including such equipment as light weights, balls and theraband. A donation is collected at the door to help assist with venue hire and other group costs. After the exercises a time of support, friendship and catch up continues over a hot drink and a biscuit.

You can read some stories from actual group attendees in our blog.
