Specialty Services

Andover_services1As part of our commitment to meeting the various needs of our patients, we have developed a series of specialty services that address certain medical conditions often related to advanced-aging, and serious injuries and illnesses.

Andover Village can meet the needs of patients with complex care issues by offering a combination of quality clinical and rehabilitation services.

 

Respiratory Care

Andover Village is dedicated to improving the lives of patients with complex respiratory care needs transitioning from the acute care hospital back home.  We have Respiratory Therapist on staff 24/7.

For patients with tracheostomies the Transitional Respiratory Care Program at Andover Village is dedicated to the weaning process, the goal being to ultimately remove the artificial airway and returning the normal act of breathing and eating back to the patient.

For those patients with COPD returning home, Andover Village focuses on providing the patient and their family the education and training necessary to ensure a safe return to the home environment, with the highest level of independence being achieved prior to discharge.

Types of pulmonary diagnosis accepted may include but not be limited to:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Chronic Respiratory Failure
  • Tracheostomy
  • Post Ventilator
  • Pneumonia

Ventilator Care

Our Ventilator Care program at Andover Village is focused on taking an aggressive multi-disciplinary approach to ventilator rehabilitation. Our weaning program focuses on reducing or eliminating dependence on a ventilator for breathing.

We have a Respiratory Therapist and Registered Nurses on staff 24/7 to care for the complex needs of our Ventilator patients.

For those requiring chronic ventilator services, our program is designed to provide optimum care and comfort.
