Derived from the Latin ‘I return home’, REMEO is the name of our care programme designed to meet the individual needs of long-term ventilated patients and their families:
REMEO Ventilation and Weaning Centres bridge the gap between the time when a patient no longer needs monitoring in an intensive care unit and when homecare is not yet possible. The centres are designed to help make patients and their relatives feel at home, while providing all the technical equipment necessary for ventilatory care. The aim of our specialised staff is to gradually wean ventilatory support whenever possible, allowing patients to increase their respiratory independence.
When the patient returns home, qualified REMEO staff continue to provide full medical and technical support. Services offered range from comprehensive care training and help with related routine tasks to at home visits by REMEO staff on request.
