Explanation of how a mechanical ventilator works.

The Madison Senior Living is one of only a handful in Iowa that offer ventilator care. We cater to Iowans as well as Missouri residents since the state of Missouri does not have extended facilities that offer this specialty service.

We are a leading provider that works closely with regional hospitals and medical clinics to offer ventilator patients a more homelike environment during the weaning process. This offers the resident opportunities to engage outside of their room through various activities and socialization, ultimately improving quality of life. In addition, our trained staff has the ability to provide care for residents with multiple comorbidities all in one place, making the recovery process less stressful.

With the help of certified Respiratory Therapists and under the guidance of our Medical Director, our goal is always to wean residents off of the ventilator with the hope that they can safely return home or be able to transfer to a facility closer to home. However, we understand distance can be a great concern for families during this process. To support our residents’ families, we provide a second bed in each of our private ventilator rooms so that a family member can be close. In addition, family members who do not wish to stay onsite are offered a free, one night per month, stay at our local Comfort Inn.

Our ventilator program is covered under both IA and MO Medicaid and Medicare.
