Lung Sask offers both support meetings and support groups for people with pulmonary fibrosis/interstitial lung disease, along with their caregivers and family.
The purpose of the online Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group on Facebook is to provide a safe environment to ask questions, share experiences, and offer support to each other. The group is here to help those living with pulmonary fibrosis navigate their journey in a supported way and is available at anytime of the day. The group is monitored by Lung Sask's Certified Respiratory Educators during regular business hours.
Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Meetings
We have partnered up with the Saskatchewan Health Authority's Live Well Pulmonary Fibrosis program to host these support meeting. Prior to the pandemic, meetings were held at the Senior's Health Centre in Market Mall but have now moved online. Support meetings are offered 6-10 times a year online via Zoom and usually consist of an educational presentation and time for questions, answers, and discussion.
Next Meeting Date: February 9, 2023 at 2:30 pm
