Live-in Care for those with Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disease

At IP Homecare we understand the importance to take good care of yourself if you have COPD ( Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disease). Our Living in Carers especially understand the importance to take any prescribed medication, including inhalers, as this can help prevent bad flare-ups. They are also trained in various breathing techniques that some people find helpful for breathlessness and they also understand those living with this condition have difficulty breathing and coughing which can make them feel tired and depressed.

Therefore, we fully believe that home care for those with COPD offers a route that’s not only affordable, but that also provides customers with not only the physical  but the psychological support needed to continue living a rich, fulfilling life.

Home-based Support

At Independent People Homecare  we have been providing home-based support for people living with COPD for over 10 years. Our aim is to provide care and support for those with Chronic Obstructive Disease in in the environment they know best – their own home. By being given the option to stay in your own home with the provision of live-in care you or a loved one will be free to welcome family and friends and be free to continue with their own routine: living as independently as possible; the only difference is that you will be supported around the clock by an experienced, professionally trained home carer.

We appreciate that choosing to work with a home carer is a big decision, and our team are on hand to guide you every step of the way. Our care assessments are FREE and a Care Manager will visit you or your loved one onsite – whether at home or hospital where they will chat about your options and start to put together a personalised care plan. Our team will then find a live in carer who has experience in caring for people with Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disorder and who has similar passions and interests.
