Pulmonary Fibrosis Caregiver Communities

The support of others can make dealing with a pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis just a little bit easier. There are several ways PF caregivers can connect with others.

Caring for Pulmonary Fibrosis Online Support Community

Connecting with others in your shoes is an invaluable source of support and practical help. The Lung Association has free online support communities on Inspire called Caring for Pulmonary Fibrosis and Living with Pulmonary Fibrosis. Sign up today to join a virtual support community.

Better Breathers Club

Better Breathers Clubs are in-person support groups that teach you ways to cope with lung disease and provide pulmonary fibrosis support from others who share in your struggles. Caregivers are welcome at these groups, with or without your loved one. These support groups give you the tools you need to live the best quality of life possible.

Other Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Groups

  • Contact your local Lung Association and ask your healthcare team about any other PF support groups in your area. 
  • The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation offers a connection to local, online and telephone-based support groups and communities for patients and caregivers.
