Bariatric Services and Vent Care

Windsor Lane Health Care and Rehabilitation Center is the nation’s only resource to specialize in a uniquely skilled bariatric vent care designed to help overweight patients.  Our staff has helped patient’s up to 1000lb successfully regaining mobility and independence, while managing their respiratory needs.

Skilled Vent Care

While nocturnal vents have been a regular service here at Windsor Lane for some time, we now offer 24-hr vent care as well.  Our nursing team has years of experience overseeing the well-being of our residents who require ventilators.

A ventilator may be administered to someone who requires the long-term use of a machine to help them breathe. It may also be necessary for someone who has recently undergone a tracheostomy.  If a tracheostomy is no longer needed, it’s allowed to heal shut or is surgically closed. For some people, a tracheostomy is permanent.

Other care needs

In cooperation with your PCP and through dietary planning, physical therapy, occupational therapy and group activities, our staff encourages you every step of the way.  Your doctor is kept up-to-date on your progress to better care for your needs.  Our supportive team will meet with you quarterly to review your progress and celebrate your successes.  In some cases, morbid obesity can cause additional health concerns such as wounds, edema, respiratory complications, diabetes and more.  We understand the challenges of being over weight and have grounded knowledge in the added health care that is needed.

Together we get results!

Patients who have actively participated in their own care by sticking with the guidelines set for them in their care planning, and have taken advantage of our services, have seen life-changing results.  The ability to independently walk out of our facility after losing up to 700lb is truly something we all celebrate!  Their successes continues to inspire us every day.
