Welcov Healthcare provides highly specialized care for those who are unable to breathe on their own. In fact, Welcov Healthcare has the largest ventilator program based in a long-term care facility in Minnesota at our Bethel Healthcare Community in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Specially Trained Staff
Our programs are unique because we have respiratory therapists on staff and available on call 24-hours a day. The staff is specially trained in respiratory and tracheotomy care and receives ongoing training. Welcov Healthcare utilizes state-of-the-art ventilator equipment, reinforced by emergency back-up generators. All residents are equipped with portable ventilators to allow for greater mobility within and outside the facility. Ventilator care often includes physical, occupational, and speech therapy to help each person reach their highest potential.
“Due to failing health, I needed to come to Evergreen Terrace for ventilator care. I was reluctant at first, but the staff quickly won me over. The registered nurses make me feel safe and provide me with the care I require. Even though I live in a care facility, I am still really involved in my care.”
