Helping you gain more control over your chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) condition and its symptoms.
Community respiratory therapists provide in-home education and assessment to help individuals gain more control over COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Services include home visits by a respiratory therapist, and include coaching and education on your flare up plan with suggestions on improving daily activities. Your doctor will receive the assessment and recommendations once your visit is completed.
BreatheWELL/COPD Services is a Fraser Health-wide service provided to anyone who lives with a diagnosis of COPD within the Fraser Health boundaries. Services require physician or other health care provider referral.
Once your referral has been submitted, you will receive a phone call within 72 hours and an appointment will be arranged for you.
