Respiratory therapy is a massive help for elderly clients who are struggling with lung and breathing-related problems. Did you know that, as we age, the muscles in our lungs begin to deteriorate rapidly? And, this can lead to issues with breathing and getting enough oxygen! In fact, lung conditions are some of the most commonly seen conditions in elderly patients.

Respiratory therapy for elderly - Home Care

When is Respiratory Therapy Necessary?

Did you know that more than one in seven older adults is suffering from a lung disease that can affect their breathing? Respiratory therapy is a treatment approach that can help elderly clients cope with breathing problems and lung diseases. Respiratory therapy helps to boost breathing efficiency in those suffering from emphysema, pneumonia, bronchitis, and COPD. Furthermore, it is also a great treatment approach for those elderly clients who are simply struggling to breathe optimally as a result of old age.

You should consider respiratory therapy for your elderly loved one if you notice that he or she is having trouble breathing, or if he or she is coughing or wheezing regularly. A respiratory therapist will work hand-in-hand with the elderly client’s in-home caregiver to manage symptoms, improve well-being, and bolster the quality of life.

How Does Respiratory Therapy Work?

Ultimately, respiratory therapy is geared towards helping elderly people to breathe as comfortably as possible in light of their unique circumstances. A respiratory therapist may administer medications, assess lung capacity and determine impairment, conduct chest x-rays and analyze sputum samples, assess vital signs, and conduct rehabilitation activities tailored to each client’s condition.
