Home Care for Pulmonary Disorders

Our goal is to help patients with pulmonary diseases achieve and maintain their maximum level of independence and wellbeing. By providing the appropriate education and skilled services, patients are able to safely remain in their homes once home health is no longer required.

Home care is appropriate for:
  • Recent hospitalization
  • Unable to function outside the home without the aid of another person and/or assistive device.
  • Diagnosis or recent onset of disease
  • Exacerbation of an existing illness or onset of a new disease process, but not necessarily limited to:
    • COPD
    • Lung Cancer
    • Pneumonia
    • Fluctuating or unstable vital signs
    • Frequent trips to the Emergency Room (three or more per six months) indicate a need for SN to educate the patient about disease process and management.
