When Breathing Well...
Means Living Well
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is comprised primarily of two related diseases:
chronic bronchitis and emphysema. In both diseases, the flow of air through the airways and out of the lungs is chronically obstructed. The obstruction generally is permanent and progressive over time.
United Home Care believes people with COPD can lead active and fulfilling lives. By diagnosing the disease early, treating symptoms, reducing the risk of complications and educating patients and families, our COPD program, inSPIRE, helps people take charge of their breathing and regain or maintain control of their lives by becoming actively involved in the management of their disease.
United Home Care is committed to teaching patients with COPD the skills they need to manage their disease at home. Our staff is dedicated to improving the patients’ quality of life and preventing repeated hospitalizations due to COPD exacerbation. Our inSPIRE program involves the coordination of nursing and occupational therapy visits with COPD patients in their home.
