A Unique Approach To Homecare

Initially, Melanie resisted using the BiPAP (assisted breathing device), because she didn’t want to acknowledge that she needed help breathing. Now she knows that the BiPAP allows her to speak, breathe, talk, laugh - to be who she wants to be. It’s an easy-to-use tool to support her comfort.
