How Liken Home Care Supports Seniors with COPD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung condition that affects millions of seniors in the United States. A COPD diagnosis can be overwhelming and scary, but having the right support system in place can make all the difference. That's why Liken Home Care is here to help. Our experienced care professionals provide personalized home care services tailored to meet the unique needs of seniors with COPD.
What Is COPD?
COPD is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases like emphysema and chronic bronchitis. It occurs when the lungs become inflamed and narrowed due to long-term exposure to irritants such as tobacco smoke or air pollution particles. This makes it difficult for air to flow in and out of the lungs, resulting in shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, and other symptoms.
