Versailles Health Care Center celebrated National Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week March 12th through the 18th. Through this year’s theme “Inspiration for Life”, Versailles Health Care Center promoted awareness about the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in enhancing the quality of life of individuals with lung diseases. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary and comprehensive intervention for patients with pulmonary function symptoms. These patients often have decreased daily life activities. Integrating monitored exercise, lifestyle modification, diet and behavioral health services, pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to reduce symptoms, provide an enhanced quality of life for patients and reduce health care costs by stabilizing and managing the disease. Pulmonary rehabilitation professionals are the link between the physician and ongoing patient assessment and care. Pulmonary rehabilitation fills the gap between hospital discharges and physician visits. Patients who complete Pulmonary Rehabilitation typically make long-term lifestyle changes decisions in nutrition, medications and exercise.
The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center Inpatient and Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program incorporates a professional Pulmonary Strengthening Program, develops individualized therapeutic breathing exercises designed to strengthen your lungs while maximizing your oxygen intake with physical movements, and works directly with your physicians to improve your respiratory health care needs. VHCC’s Pulmonary Rehab team members are experts in providing quality care in Pulmonary Strengthening, decreasing oxygen dependence, supervising CPAP and BiPAP requirements, and providing professional Trach Care.
Versailles Health Care Center also collaborates with the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Specialists at Wayne HealthCare to provide pulmonary services at VHCC. The Wayne HealthCare Pulmonary Specialists and Versailles Health Care Center Team provide high level pulmonary services to the patients in the community. As part of the partnership, the Wayne HealthCare Respiratory Therapists are on-site weekly at Versailles Health Care Center, work in conjunction with Versailles Health Care Center staff to evaluate and assess VHCC patients for respiratory care, and are available to act as a resource for questions concerning respiratory care.
No matter your starting point for Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Versailles Health Care Center is prepared to guide you on your path to using your lungs more efficiently.
