COPD, often due to emphysema, is a chronic progressive lung disease that cannot be cured. Symptoms typically worsen over time, with increasing shortness of breath and weakness. Supportive services including in-home, palliative or hospice care can provide expert symptom management and compassion for people living with chronic lung disease, as well as their family.
If you or a loved one have any of these COPD symptoms, let us help you:
- Shortness of breath or labored breathing at rest or with minimal exertion
- Elevated heart rate or irregular heart beat at rest
- Repeated lung infections
- Worsening leg swelling
- Progressive, unintentional weight loss
- Repeated hospitalizations, rehabilitation stays or ER visits
