COPD / PULMONARY / RESPIRATORY DISEASE AND THE ELDERLY

ELDERLY AND COPD

COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is caused by multiple lung diseases that block air flow. The most common two being bronchitis and emphysema.

COPD requires a medical diagnosis but common symptoms are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Fatigue
  • A feeling of pressure in the chest 
  • Either a dry cough or with phlegm

COPD makes completing daily tasks for elderly and seniors very difficult and they may require help with personal care, bathing, grooming, and household chores.

PULMONARY AND RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS

Other common respiratory and Pulmonary conditions that affect seniors and elderly are respiratory infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis and bronchial asthma.

This is why our elderly and seniors are most vulnerable to the coronavirus.  

Medical centers, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, convalescent homes, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and assisted living communities are still taking precautions to keep our vulnerable seniors and elderly safe from all respiratory and pulmonary diseases but it is still safer for them to remain at home if recovering from any surgery or illness.
