Top 5 Simple Ways to Improve Your Loved One's Asthma

Lung Association offers no-cost home assessment for families burdened by asthma
Asthma can strike anyone, at any time and at any age. That’s why it’s vital to avoid asthma triggers at home. Below are the “Top 5” steps you can take to keep your family member’s asthma under control.
  1. Schedule a virtual home visit with the Lung Association
  2. Create an asthma management plan with your healthcare provider
  3. Assess and monitor your common asthma symptoms
  4. Set up a personalized medication plan to treat your asthma
  5. Identify your asthma triggers and learn ways to avoid them
More information on all of these steps can be found at Lung.org/home-visits or at Lung.org/asthma.

The first place to start making changes is at home, and the American Lung Association can help you.

Under the Lung Association’s free virtual program, a trained staff member will virtually walk through your home and suggest ways you can reduce your exposure to asthma triggers. During the hour-long assessment you will learn about management, signs, and symptoms of asthma plus effective medications.

The Lung Association will also give participants materials to reduce their exposure to triggers such as pillow covers, green cleaning supplies, vacuums, HEPA air cleaners and much more.

This program is available to all Chicago-area residents at no-cost and if you would like to speak to a Lung Association representative about it, please contact Janye Killelea at [email protected] or (312) 940-7624 for requests.
