    I love all the tips, but especially the section about planning meals better. The tip to avoid food that requires excessive chewing is especially smart. Most people don’t consider little things like that, so it’s wonderful that you’ve shared them.

    Thanks!

    If you are a caregiver yourself, I think that these tips are more than necessary to help patients with COPD. Since it involves difficulty in breathing, the best way to extend help is to practice better communication between the patient and caregiver. In a patient’s POV, relaying your needs and wants can be strenuous; maybe signal movements that require minimal actions will suffice.
