The Better Breathers Club offer the opportunity to learn ways to better cope with COPD while getting the support of others who share in your struggles. These support groups give you the tools you need to live the best quality of life you can.
Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly and feature educational presentations on a wide range of relevant topics, including:
- Medical tests
- Supplemental oxygen
- Home healthcare
- Lung transplants
- Air pollution
- How COPD affects the lungs
- Breathing techniques
- Talking with your physician
- Medications and other treatment option
If you feel alone and isolated, these support groups can help. It feels good to talk with others who understand, which has a positive impact on your health.
Taking care of your emotional health is a key part of managing your COPD or other lung disease. Better Breathers Clubs can offer you a place to share your thoughts with others who know what you are going through. Family members and caregivers are also welcome to join.
