Services We Provide
We offer the following programs that serve ventilator assisted individuals:
Home Ventilation Assessment, Training and Follow-Up (Including Transitional Home Ventilation Program)
Provides training to individuals and their caregivers, in the management of ventilator and other personal care needs. Regular follow-up is an opportunity to re-evaluate baseline respiratory function, the effectiveness of the ventilatory support and also to assist with any new medical or social issues. The typical length of stay is 6 weeks or less and is geared toward those individuals with an identified discharge location.
For individuals requiring a longer length of stay or help in identifying / organizing community supports, the Transitional Home Ventilation Program (in partnership with the Central LHIN) will allow for a length of stay of 16 weeks.
Follow up can arranged via inpatient stay or may include Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) secure video conferencing services.
