People living in the community in BC, who meet certain medical criteria and require assisted ventilation, may qualify to receive services for the Provincial Respiratory Outreach Program (PROP).
We provide education to your caregivers, so that they can confidently support you in your home. A Tracheostomy and Ventilator course is offered every month, so the member and caregiver can gain practical experience.
Our equipment is safe. Our Biomedical Engineers maintain and repair all respiratory equipment, including mounting ventilators on wheelchairs. We ensure equipment used by our members is available, safe and operational.
Transition from hospital to home. Our team works with acute care units to transition ventilator-dependent members into the community. We help with discharge planning meetings so that all questions are answered, and you’re well prepared to be successful at home.
