Northwinds Vent Community is staffed 24 hrs/7 days a week by registered nurses, respiratory therapists and certified nursing assistants. The Northwinds program specializes in caring for individuals who are unable to wean off of a ventilator.
NOTE: Plans are underway for a renovation in 2019/2020 which may impact new admissions. Check the website under the Renovations tab for current info. https://www.norcen.org/about-us/renovations/
The program's main focus is to improve the quality of life for individuals that are ventilator - dependent. This includes, but is not limited to, social outings, life enrichment activities and promoting independence in activities of daily living.
The Northwinds Vent community is located within Mount View Care Center, a 265 bed SNF that specializes in traditional long-term care, short-term rehab and dementia care. Currently the Northwinds program is for stable individuals needing long-term placement.
