Respiratory Therapy

For patients with lung disease and chronic respiratory problems, our comprehensive respiratory therapy program aids in recovery and coping with respiratory failure. Because breathing problems are often accompanied by a great deal of stress, individualized physical and occupational therapies may be supplemented by breathing control techniques designed to promote relaxation and alleviate anxiety. The program may also include oxygen therapy, dietary counselling, and education in specific disease management/self care issues. Our Respiratory team provides premiere care for long-term vent dependent residents, as well as being highly successful in ventilator weaning.
