As providers of home care in Pennsylvania, we have encountered patients with different types of diseases, some of which are lung conditions.
Lung diseases refer to several diseases that affect the function of the lungs. They may affect your airways, lung tissues, or blood circulation in and out of your lungs. Some patients may require 24-hour care for the following:
- Airway diseases
These diseases affect the airways that carry oxygen and other gases into and out of the lungs. The feeling is like breathing through a straw. Asthma and COPD fall under this category. And these may require senior care in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
- Lung tissue diseases
These diseases affect the lung tissue structure. Scarring or inflammation of the tissue makes the lungs unable to expand fully. Having such a type of disease feels like wearing tight clothing, making deep breathing difficult. Pulmonary fibrosis falls under this type.
- Lung circulation diseases
These diseases affect the lung blood vessels. They are caused by clotting, scarring, or inflammation of the blood vessels, affecting heart function. Pulmonary hypertension is a lung circulation disease.
As a caring home care agency, we are always ready to serve customized nonmedical care for seniors with these health problems. Pleasant Vine Home Care knows how challenging it is for them and their families, so we provide convenience and peace of mind.
