Respiratory Therapy Program
Most ALEH residents suffer from respiratory complications and breathing difficulties, often leading to pneumonia and hospitalization. In response, ALEH’s Respiratory Therapy Program offers personalized respiratory treatment for residents. Treatment includes the use of sophisticated equipment and devices that clear the lungs and enhance breathing; respiratory sessions several times a day incorporated within all daily activity; and training and guidance for the rehabilitative aides. Specifically tailored to the needs of the individual, the program minimizes medical complications, prevents recurrent pneumonia, and wards off hospitalization. This frees residents to pursue normative activities in a greatly enhanced quality of life.
