Part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care
Includes Complimentary CEUs
If your client has COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), you know the discomfort he or she may be experiencing. COPD is one of the most common lung diseases—a condition that can adversely affect an older adult’s ability to breathe. Within the United States, more than 24 million people—or 6.3 percent of the U.S. population—suffer from this disease, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Canadian Lung Association says 3 million Canadians may have COPD. In this web seminar, Molly Carpenter provides tips for helping individuals manage COPD symptoms.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Describe the common symptoms of COPD;
- List possible complications of COPD; and,
- List ways a family caregiver can support a loved one with COPD.
