COPD is a group of inflammatory lung diseases, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, that have their cause long-term exposure to cigarette smoke and other environmental irritants. COPD is a progressive condition without a cure. Individuals suffering from COPD have
a greater risk of lung cancer and heart disease than those without, but it is possible to control symptoms and preserve quality of life.
Based on large scale health data, respiratory disease (COPD) is the 4th most common chronic disorder amongst seniors.
In 2018, the CDC stated that COPD was the fourth leading cause of mortality in the US.
For COPD patients, managing additional complex medical conditions is crucial.
They often experience frequent hospitalizations, disease flares, and persistent symptoms. These challenges can arise in between infrequent clinic visits, creating a gap in their care.
Providing COPD care at home goes beyond prescribing inhalers and giving instructions.
In-home COPD care requires a deep understanding of the disease and its fluctuating symptoms. Caregivers closely monitor patients for changes in coughing, shortness of breath, secretions, fever, or chills.
This is where healthcare-at-home organizations and standardized care programs play a crucial role in bridging this gap and improving COPD patient care. However, healthcare-at-home providers face the challenge of addressing COPD patients’ unique needs, including providing durable medical equipment, appropriate medications, and personalized care plans.
Our COPD program brings together a team of skilled in-home clinicians from various disciplines to help patients manage their COPD at home, reducing ER visits and hospital readmissions. We offer specialized COPD home health care programs, which are preferred by both physicians and families as a cost-effective alternative to repetitive inpatient admissions.
COPD management is a collaborative effort. Our team of healthcare professionals, including skilled nurses, therapists, and caregivers, works under the guidance of your pulmonologist.
