Abstract

Abstract Abstract: Health care providers can work toward the goal of maintaining quality, dignity, and independence in the elderly when they combine resources with the community to promote wellness and help manage chronic problems. The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Wellness Program was undertaken for this purpose. The target participants were elderly individuals and their care partners who met the program qualifications: a diagnosis or symptoms of COPD and residency in a certain independent housing facility. The program was designed to help the participants maximize their independence through knowledge and improved management of their disease process. (Geriatr Nurs 1999;20:200-2)
