Hi, it’s Patrik Hutzel from Intensivecarehotline.com with another quick tip for families in Intensive Care.
Yesterday, I had an email from Carol in Melbourne. And Carol says that her dad who is 78, has been in Intensive Care for three months now. He’s got a tracheostomy and he can’t be weaned off the ventilator. She’s asking what should we do next.
Now, my quick tip for today is really look at the alternative here, which is Intensive Care At Home Services. So why is this a genuine alternative? It’s simple, it gets your dad home out of ICU, which is what he wants and which is what you want. It reduces the cost of an Intensive Care bed by 50%.
It improves quality of life for your dad and for yourself as a family. And it frees up in demand beds in ICU.
So, check out intensivecareathome.com as a next step because there are services available in Melbourne in particular. So, check out intensivecareathome.com.
That’s my tip for today. If your loved one is long-term ventilated in Intensive Care with a tracheostomy check out intensivecareathome.com as a next step. Take care for now and I’ll talk to you in a few days.
