For people living with advanced respiratory disease, the simple act of breathing in can be a painful struggle. Care Dimensions has developed a respiratory program focused solely on the needs of hospice patients with pulmonary disease and their caregivers. We help people breathe easier – so they can make the most of every day. Our team of hospice care specialists help patients and caregivers deal with the effects of advanced lung disease after curative treatment is no longer effective. We help patients find relief from:
|Breathing distress||Difficulty with personal care||Cough and fluid buildup||Fatigue|
|Respiratory infections||Loss of appetite||Increased anxiety or depression||Nausea|
|Difficulty walking||Stress||Sleeping problems|
Our goal is to reduce crisis situations and visits to the hospital so patients can look forward to each day, without pain, worry or stress. We provide 24/7 support and teach patients and families to better control the symptoms of advanced respiratory disease.
Hospice-eligible patients with advanced respiratory disease can enroll in the program if they exhibit any of the following:
