Harbour View in League City no longer has a vent unit. Not since Hurricane Ike. My mother is in an LTAC in Houston and is considered vent-dependent. Even though she is not on the vent at this moment (as far as I know) they say she needs to have one on standby. They are attempting to discharge her and say she needs to go to a SNF with a vent unit. Her insurance would likely cover the costs for what remains of her life. There are no such places anywhere near Houston that I am aware of and I simply CANNOT send her away to San Antonio. We would never see her again and her anxiety level would most certainly exacerbate her condition irreparably. The only other option they have given us is NOT AN OPTION. That is, to take her home and pay for home health care herself. We are not wealthy and her home is in disrepair because of the hurricane. There are no family members able to provide round the clock care as there simply are too few of us. I am living in a small apartment and am dealing with joblessness due to the economy. I am nearing a complete meltdown. If anyone knows of something near Houston, please please please let me know.
I am the Admissions Coordinator at Graham Oaks Care Center. Although we are not in East Texas WE also accept vent pt requiring longterm management. We also obtain orders for weening trials as appropriate. If anyone is aware of all of the vent facilities that are longterm and not LTAC please let me know. I do get asked frequently from some hospitals when trying to find longterm placement when families are not wanting to relocate.
I heard from my dad's LTAC case manager that Spanish Meadows Skilled Nursing & Rehab in Katy (1480 Katy Flewellen Rd, Katy, TX 77494) has recently added a vent program. She said that since they were just starting the program, they wouldn't accept patients for weaning, only patients that planned to stay on the vent. Hopefully this will give Houston-area families an option other than Meridian (San Antonio) or Willowbrook (Nacogdoches).
This is a list of locations I am aware of...
Spanish Meadows Houston, TX
Community Care Center Garland TX
Trinity Rehab & Retirement San Augustine TX
Meridian Healthcare San Antonio TX
Valley Grande Manor Brownsville TX
