Respiratory Care & Support

Respiratory Care in California

Being hospitalized for a respiratory illness can be devastating. The uncertainty surrounding recovery, the need for a breathing tube, and what services will be needed for the care of you or your loved one after leaving the hospital can be overwhelming. At Sierra Care we provide subacute care, treatment that is focused on patients newly leaving the hospital, and for all types of respiratory issues. Sierra Care provides patients with access to skilled nurses, therapists, and doctors that can speed your return to a normal life.

What Types of Patient’s Benefit From Our Services?

Nearly any patient that is admitted to a hospital for a severe respiratory illness can benefit from the skilled providers at Sierra Care. Many of our patients have recently suffered from pneumonia, stroke, or traumatic injuries that prevent them from breathing easily even after being discharged from the hospital. A few of the conditions we treat that lead to severe respiratory issues are:

  • Pneumonia
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Rib fractures
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Lung cancer
  • Aspiration pneumonia
  • Obesity hypoventilation syndrome
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Bronchiectasis

What Types of Respiratory Care is Offered at Sierra Care?

Sierra Care specializes in recovery, while most hospitals are able to rapidly provide lifesaving treatments such as breathing tubes, ventilators, and medications. Recovery from these life-saving procedures often takes weeks to months and is best done in a calm and supportive environment. We have numerous medical specialists and therapists that are able to care for nearly any patient that is recovering from a serious respiratory illness.

  • Tracheostomy care and training for patients and family members
  • Breathing exercises to strengthen the muscles and help heal the lungs
  • Speech therapy to help with speaking, eating, and drinking issues
  • Advanced respiratory therapy for patients with genetic and chronic diseases
  • Adjustment of medications and breathing treatments by specialized physicians

Complete and Compassionate Care

Many patients that have serious respiratory diseases also have other injuries and illnesses that need to be carefully managed. Sierra Care is far more than a respiratory care facility, we treat patients with brain injuries, spinal injuries, severe wounds, and multiple chronic medical conditions. Our skilled nurses and physicians treat the whole patient, ensuring that you or your loved one leave our facility in the best possible health.

Compassion for our patients is central to our mission as Sierra Care. We understand that the process of healing requires far more than the right medications given at the right times. Our beautiful and modern facilities are located in supportive and calming environments throughout central California with lakes, mountains, and beautiful suburban communities as their backdrop.

Choosing the right facility for you or your loved one to recover in can be a difficult task. Once you meet our caring and compassionate staff, skilled providers, and see our beautiful facilities we hope you will choose Sierra Care as the home for your recovery.
