Allegan General Hospital Introducing Better Breathers Club
Allegan General Hospital (AGH) is starting a Better Breathers Club in connection with the American Lung Association. The Better Breathers Club provides the opportunity for individuals with COPD or other chronic lung diseases to learn how to better cope with the disease and receive support from others who share in the same struggles.
Participants will learn from healthcare professionals how to manage their condition, take part in discussions, practice new skills and tips to live life to the fullest. The Better Breathers Club features educational presentations each month on a wide range of relevant topics.
The club is a free support group that meets on the hospital campus in the Jenner Building (545 Jenner Drive, Allegan) the third Wednesday of every month at 1 p.m. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 16. Upcoming topics include laughing matters, breathing techniques, oxygen therapy and medications. To learn more about AGH’s Better Breathers Club or to RSVP, please call 269-686-4386.
