The Need for Acute and Chronic Respiratory Care
Acute and chronic respiratory diseases, or pulmonary diseases, are conditions that affect the lungs or other sections of the respiratory system. A range of conditions can fall into this category, including asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. These diseases can be caused by a range of conditions, such as an accident, radon, asbestos, or other factors.
Our CLHF Homes are proud to provide acute and chronic respiratory care, which consists of an individualized, interdisciplinary treatment model. We’ve designed this treatment model to maximize the resident’s ability to function and care for themselves in spite of their pulmonary disorder. Our staff will perform an evaluation of the resident to ensure that we understand their clinical, physical, and rehabilitation needs.
We offer short-term and long-term acute and chronic respiratory care, which focuses on stabilizing the condition once they are in our care. We will begin to focus on their rehabilitation, as well as early intervention strategies, educating your family and the resident about the condition. Furthermore, we’ll provide a care plan that we tailor to the resident’s needs, allowing us to alter the treatment if necessary.
We manage all types of complex pulmonary conditions. Our team is composed of pulmonary physicians and nurse practitioners, as well as nurses trained in pulmonary care and ventilator management and trained respiratory therapists. With these experienced team members, we manage a range of services, including:
- Ventilator care
- Ventilator weaning
- Tracheotomy care
- Tracheotomy changes and weaning
- Oxygen management
- Breathing treatments
Acute and Chronic Respiratory Care Alongside Other Services
In some situations, your loved one may require acute and chronic respiratory care alongside other medical services. Fortunately, CLHF Homes are fully equipped to address these needs. We offer high levels of care that are less intensive than those your loved one would receive in a hospital but more intensive than the care provided in a skilled nursing facility.
There are a number of benefits to choosing CLHF Homes. For instance, our services include:
- Skilled nursing services: We realize that many medical conditions that require long-term care need specialized care levels. As a result, our staff included highly-trained nurses, all of whom are equipped to address acute and chronic respiratory care alongside a range of other conditions.
- Therapeutic services: In many cases, we want to help people recover the standard of living that they experienced before their disease or accident. As such, we provide a range of occupational, physical, and speech therapy options. We tailor each of these to the needs of the resident.
- In-home care services: Depending on your monetary situation and other factors, you may not be comfortable placing your loved one in a residential facility. Fortunately, this isn’t always necessary. With our in-home care services, we can provide them with the same high-level care that we would in the comfort of your home.
