A MORE COMPASSIONATE SOLUTION AND BETTER CLINICAL OUTCOMES
Treatment and Management
Our therapists work diligently to treat the underlying causes of your condition while improving the work of breathing with supplemental oxygen.
The therapist will develop a short-term treatment plan to continue to wean residents down to safe levels of oxygen so they can be discharged safely to the comfort of their own homes. We have expertise in successfully capping and decannulating tracheostomy residents.
Long-Term residents who have received medical treatment for 30 days or longer due to a chronic illness or medical condition are provided the same clinical expertise and attention from all our staff and therapists.
