Respiratory Care

Respiratory Care Staten Island, NY

Most people take breathing for granted, but for some, each breath is a struggle. At Verrazano, every breath our residents take is important to us. If your loved one suffers with respiratory issues, our team will explain the special care we can provide. From dietary planning to respiratory therapy, our services will help your family member live a high-quality life at Verrazano.

Respiratory Problems

Our skilled nursing staff and rehabilitation team realize that every patient has unique needs, and in some cases, respiratory issues are a concern. We are well equipped to provide treatment and daily care for respiratory patients, including those who require temporary or long-term care. Being in a new environment without a familiar medical care team, while also suffering from a breathing disorder, may cause anxiety. Rest assured that our goal in serving your loved one includes making him feel well cared for and completely confident at Verrazano.

Consider some of the conditions our medical team can help you treat throughout your stay:

  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Lung Cancer

Care Options

Respiratory care treats breathing problems with particular therapies to support regular, unobstructed breathing or to improve the ability to breathe independently. We can address these and other breathing issues for patients under our care:

  • Aerosolization for Asthma Treatment
  • Oxygen Administration
  • Airway Management, Including Tracheostomy Care

Individualized Care

We will look over your loved one’s health history at length and speak with the doctors and family members who can assist in creating an optimal treatment plan. Our skilled nursing team has training and experience caring for a wide variety of patient cases and will work diligently to promote healthy breathing.
