Leading-Edge Short Term Respiratory Care
Experienced, Licensed and Registered respiratory care Practitioners on staff
Short-term treatment plans work continuously to wean residents down to safe levels of oxygen with the intention of discharging them safely in the comfort of their home. We have expertise in successfully capping and decannulating tracheostomy residents.
Longer-term residents — those receiving medical treatment for 30 days or longer due to a chronic illness or medical condition — are provided the same clinical expertise and attention from staff.
We work closely with families, educating them to ensure that when their loved ones return home, family members are prepared and confident in helping with their treatment.
Our team specializes in caring for acute and chronic respiratory conditions, such as:
- (COPD) Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- (CHF) Congestive Heart Failure
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
- Pulmonary Hypertension
- Chronic Bronchitis
- Pneumonia Care following Hospital Discharge.
