In Home Care and Support for Patients with Chronic Lung Disease
COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease affects 24 million people in the U.S., or 6 percent of the population. It is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Caring for a loved one suffering from COPD who is often short of breath and anxious can be taxing, overwhelming, and sometimes even scary.
Homewatch is your long term care partner in easing the stress caused by these unpredictable changes seen in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Our caregivers keep an eye on your loved one day-to-day and are trained to report any changes. We provide assistance to your loved one adjusting to a new lifestyle with an oxygen tank, assist with social outings and daily errands, including attending a pulmonary rehabilitation program classes and/ or support group. All of these activities and more can help to alleviate family caregiver burnout.
