Post-Hospital Pulmonary Program - Patients in this program will receive post-hospital pulmonary care supported by our pulmonology consultant, competency trained nursing staff, respiratory and rehabilitation therapy staff, social services, nutrition, therapeutic activities staff and medical staff. Our pulmonology consultant does rounds weekly and works together with nurses and all therapists to maximize clinical outcomes and support the reduction of hospital readmissions. This program is designed to enhance the functional independence of pulmonary patients through therapies, education of disease and medication self-management by reducing symptoms and optimizing functional status and to facilitate patients' discharge back to the community. This program treats patients with primary and secondary pulmonary diagnoses such as COPD, emphysema, pneumonia, CHF, chronic bronchitis, atelectasis, asthma, post thoracic surgery care and respiratory failure.

Long-term care - For residents who have medical requirements including Dementia and Alzheimer’s care we provide 24-hour nursing care, nutritional monitoring and planning, medication administration, personal care and other medical services such as on-site psychiatry, podiatry, dentistry, audiology and ophthalmology.
Respite care - This program is designed to assist family members who may need a short-term break from their ongoing care giving duties. Respite care can also provide the necessary short-term assistance during a personal or medical crisis.
Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation - Is designed to improve the health and quality of life of patients with heart, lung and vascular disease.
Palliative/Hospice care - Any form of medical care or treatment that concentrates on reducing the severity of disease symptoms, rather than trying to halt, delay, or reverse progression of the disease itself or provide a cure. The goal is to prevent and relieve suffering and to improve quality of life for people facing serious and complex illness. Connecticut Hospice assists us with providing these services through their Home Care Program. The hospice-based philosophy is applied throughout the resident’s stay.
