As skilled nursing facilities, we strive to provide the best recovery for all patients who come into our care. For some people, skilled respiratory therapy services can help improve outcomes. That’s often the case when a patient arrives with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), moderate-to-severe asthma or another breathing disorder, or needs breathing help while recovering from an injury or surgery. In addition, physical therapy may assist in building body strength as well.
For nursing home residents who appreciate receiving specialized treatment in the same facility where they are staying, having respiratory therapy services onsite can be a great convenience.
