FutureCare Cherrywood has partnered with the American Lung Association to provide monthly Better Breathers Club meetings for the community. Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month, 2-3pm at FutureCare Cherrywood in Reisterstown, MD. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 20th, 2-3pm.
Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly for one to two hours to provide support, education and socialization to people with COPD or another chronic lung disease, their family members and their caregivers. A facilitator coordinates and oversees the meetings, brings in featured speakers, and collects information and feedback from the participants. Members themselves can provide ideas for meeting topics, organize communication networks, and even help plan special events. An American Lung Association staff person provides ongoing support to the group.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, affects 1 in 5 adults over the age of 45. That means you or someone you know could have COPD and not even know it. Millions do.
