Support Groups

Chronic disease rehabilitation requires an active partnership. Taking your medicine, staying active, eating healthy and working with your doctor are important. But you will do much better with your rehabilitation program if you have support.

Support can come in a variety of forms. Your family is often a support group. Your spouse, adult children, siblings or other relatives can help you meet the demands of your rehabilitation program on a daily basis. Other support groups include friends, other people with chronic lung disease, people with whom you share a hobby, church groups and clergy, neighbors, volunteer organizations and even a pet! Do not be embarrassed or afraid to ask people for help when you need it.
