The Comfort of Home
If you’re like most people, you probably prefer to recover from or manage your condition in the comfort and privacy of your own home. When a skilled team of specialists provides home care, patients experience better outcomes. Cleveland Clinic Respiratory Therapy at Home can be a safe and effective alternative to inpatient care.
The goal of our Respiratory Therapy at Home team is to provide quality care in a safe environment so patients can maintain their independent lifestyles for as long as possible. Prior to starting home respiratory therapy, a thorough assessment is performed to ensure that the patient is an appropriate candidate for services and to determine if other Center for Connected Care services are needed.
