Information for Caregivers

Here are 3 things to consider when you’re caring for someone with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD):

Treatment is a team effort

Weighing COPD treatment options with your loved one's doctor, then developing and sticking to a treatment plan takes a team effort. Communication and collaboration between you, your loved one, and the doctor is key.

Make healthy decisions

Encouraging your loved one to make healthy decisions, like quitting smoking or using breathing exercises for COPD, can be another effective way for you to help them manage the disease.

As a caregiver, your health matters too

Your health matters too—your loved one depends on you, so it’s important to take care of yourself, both physically and emotionally.
