My 85 year old mother lives in Nevada. I live in Denver,

Customer Question

My 85 year old mother lives in Nevada. I live in Denver, Colorado. When she comes to Denver, she gets sick and can't breathe, so she won't visit anymore.
I want her to be able to visit me, and possibly move here.
Is there anything we can do so she will be able to breathe in this altitude and not be afraid to come here. She feels like she is suffocating.

There must be something limiting her

Does she have COPD or heart disease?

does she use oxygen when she goes there?
