Help for patients with Lung Disease

Lung disease comes with a debilitating shortness of breath and a dependence on oxygen. Frequent hospitalizations are common; we can help prevent re-hospitalization through support in a facility or in the comfort of the patient’s own home. In collaboration with you, our hospice nurse and medical director will address issues such as pain, shortness of breath, poor nutrition and confusion, while trying to prevent some of the more traumatic complications of lung disease.

Patients who are experiencing the following may be eligible:

  • Shortness of breath, especially with activity

  • Feel like they can’t breathe

  • Excess sputum production

  • Fatigue

  • Decreased appetite

  • Wheezing

  • Chest pain

  • Depression

  • Dyspnea that often causes anxiety, two of the most distressing symptoms

We understand that with symptoms such as these, you may be experiencing an increase in phone calls and re-hospitalizations. Let us help you by partnering in the care of a patient with advanced lung disease.
