COPD Management at Home

COPD Management

We're here to help manage your COPD symptoms

At UnityPoint at Home, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional care and treatment assistance to persons diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD for short. Our staff members are carefully selected and trained to understand the symptoms and management options for COPD through each stage of progression.  

COPD Affects More Than Just Your Lungs

COPD is a progressive respiratory disease that makes it more and more difficult to  breathe over time.  Living with this disease can be challenging - not only for the person diagnosed with COPD, but for the entire family as well.  It's very important to maintain a healthy environment, which could mean major lifestyle changes for everyone involved.  A healthy diet, exercise and quitting smoking are crucial for managing COPD.

Personalized Care... in Your Home, Your Surroundings - The Best Possible Choice for COPD

Persons living with COPD  have various levels of health concerns and challenges, but may not need to be in a hospital or nursing home. Our unique at-home care environment allows those diagnosed with COPD to stay comfortably in their own home, maintaining personal independence while receiving individualized care and assistance from our dedicated staff.

Medical Care for COPD

Under the supervision and direction of your own physician, our chronic care team will assist those living with COPD with medical services, such as:

  • Medication management
  • Breathing treatments
  • Breathing exercises
  • Education & coping support

Getting People Back to Normal Life

One of the biggest challenges for people living with COPD is learning how to adapt their lifestyle to cope with their respiratory concerns.  There are several steps a person can take to help slow the damage to their lungs, and ways they can adapt daily activity when it becomes increasingly difficult.  We can help.

Helping with Daily Activity

  • Bathing and grooming care
  • Light household chores
  • Meal preparation
