Alberta Lung is dedicated to the care and support of all Albertans in the areas of lung disease and lung health. The following additional resources are available to lung disease patients and their caregivers:
Better Breathers Club – Support Group
This group is for those living with a chronic lung disease to help them breathe easier, as well as for their caregivers to find support. Learn better ways to cope with conditions such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and asthma while getting the support of others in similar situations.
We offer weekly virtual seminars, activities, or discussions on a variety of topics relating to lung health, including
- breath checks
- mental health check-in
- relaxed breathing techniques
- using inhaled medications
- Tai Chi
- C-PAP maintenance and fittings
- breathing during activity
- plants for clean air
- and more!
We also offer tips and best practices for managing your lung condition. If you have a topic you’d like to learn more about, please let us know. We are here for you!
The group is administered by Certified Respiratory Educators from Alberta Lung.
