In addition to this, we provide respiratory treatments: such as breathing treatment for upper respiratory infections, nebulizer treatments, etc.
We also provide chronic disease management of health-related issues.
Unlike hospice care, which is available only during a patient’s final months of life, palliative care is available at any time during the course of a serious or life-threatening illness. Palliative care aims to ease the course of advanced illnesses and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Care Mountain’s team will coordinate care with the prescribing physician and hospital before the patient is discharged from the hospital to ensure an efficient transition of care into the home setting. Our clinical leaders give patients and caregivers one-on-one counseling prior to discharge and assist with each patient’s transition to an ambulatory pump during the discharge
Infusion treatments are commonly used to deliver chemotherapy, immunotherapy,and targeted therapy to treat cancer. Infusion therapies are liquids usually given from a plastic bag filled with medicine that’s attached to a thin, soft tube called a catheter that delivers the fluid into your body through a vein.
Infusions are helpful for patients with conditions that make it difficult to swallow pills or liquids. Some drugs, like chemotherapy, are too toxic to be delivered quickly and therefore need to be dripped into the blood slowly over an extended period. Some specific types of drugs can only be given as infusions or injections because, if swallowed, the stomach will break them down or they won’t get into the bloodstream through the gut.
