For those with COPD, our Breathe Easy Program includes the multidisciplinary expertise of McLean’s own registered nurses, occupational and physical therapists. In your home, our experts assess needs to help patients: understand Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), strengthen endurance, posture and balance, conserve energy and pace themselves, learn techniques to clear airways, identify nourishing foods for optimal health, prevent serious illness by knowing what symptoms to report and when, communicate effectively with doctors, establish a long-term “Breathe Easy” plan that fits their lifestyle, use oxygen equipment effectively and safely and cope with COPD-related social and emotional stresses.
Any adult with COPD can enroll in Breathe Easy upon learning about the chronic lung condition, when breathing worsens at home or following a hospital stay for lung complications.
Who Pays for the Program?
Payment may vary from insurance to private pay arrangements, depending upon each person’s individual circumstance. We can help you look into insurance coverage depending upon your needs and your physician’s orders.
