The HomeBase website is a resource for the development of home-based pulmonary rehabilitation programs.

HomeBase pulmonary rehabilitation is an alternative rehabilitation model that aims to improve uptake and access to these programs. It has been shown to have equivalent outcomes to centre-based programs.
HomeBase rehabilitation has been well received by patients, who reported that the program helped them to establish an exercise routine and manage their disease. People who have undertaken HomeBase rehabilitation valued the convenience of the program and felt supported.
