Caring for someone with COPD can be rewarding. You know that performing your role each day is essential to his or her health and well-being.

But taking on more responsibility, dealing with new challenges, and watching your loved one live with COPD can take a toll on you, too. You need to find ways to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. The better you care for yourself, the more time, attention, and affection you can give to your loved one with COPD.
