Four Seasons announces leading edge respiratory care........
Leading Edge Respiratory Care – up to 15 liters per minute of humidified oxygen via high-flow nasal cannula for treating acute onset or chronic conditions. Our goal is for our short-term residents who are receiving respiratory care, to safely return home and enjoy their activities of daily life within 30 days. We have successfully capped and decannulated tracheostomy residents. We are continuously working on weaning residents down to a safe level of oxygen with the intention of discharging them back to the community.
Our longer-term residents are also provided with the same clinical expertise and attendtion by our staff.
Longer-term residents consist of those who receive medical treatment for 30 days or longer dur to a chronic illness or medical condition. We work closely with families to educate them and get them well prepared to take their loved ones home.

Just breathe..... with our leading edge respiratory care
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. “Progressive” means the disease gets worse over time. COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms.
Pneumonia- While pneumonia always refers to an infection of the lungs, there are many different types. Some are caused by viruses, fungi, or parasites, but many cases of pneumonia are caused by bacteria. The most common bacterial pneumonia is called pneumococcal pneumonia. Pneumococcal pneumonia is a serious disease that can strike anywhere, anytime. Certain symptoms, like cough and fatigue, can last for weeks, or even longer.
