Have you ever thought what it would be like to offer a long-term ventilated Patient in Intensive Care to go home? What would the Patient’s and their Family’s response be? How would they feel if after many weeks in Intensive Care they could finally go home?
The Patient and their Family would be absolutely delighted and once at home their Quality of life is going to improve big time, rather than spending many more weeks in Intensive Care.
The Patients and their Families can decide how to organise their days, away from the pressures and the schedules of a busy Intensive Care environment, without having to compromise their safety and their well-being. INTENSIVE CARE AT HOME’s Critical Care Registered Nurses will look after the Patient’s and their Family’s in all key areas of independent living, around the clock 24/7.
How much nicer would this alternative be for the Patients and their Families?
Our services are specifically tailored to give Patient’s and their Families valuable and precious time that they can spend together in their own home, rather than in an Intensive Care environment.
Improving the lives of long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy and their Families requires specialised Critical Care nursing skills, clinical experience and more importantly- a different approach and a different mindset from conventional clinical Intensive Care nursing- as our services are focused and tailored towards opening a window of possibilities, opportunities and an approach of what we believe is in the best interest for Patients, their Families and also for Hospitals and Intensive Care Units in particular.
The demand on ICU beds remains consistently high and rather than keeping long-term ventilated Adults& Children in Intensive Care, you could start sending your long-term ventilated Patients home and let them experience a better Quality of Life and/or Quality of end of Life and everybody wins.
