Tracheostomy Nursing Care Services We Offer at Every’s Homecare
There is no set time, health condition or diagnosis to consider help at home from a professional home care service provider. It is simply when you feel that you need extra support to carry out everyday tasks and meal preparation or live life the way you want to.
Many people arrange home care initially to help them round the house with light duties such as cleaning, changing the beds, vacuuming, and meal preparation – especially after leaving hospital. They may then increase the number of visits and length of calls they have to assist them with personal care, getting to appointments, and for companionship. This may even develop into 24-hour live-in or overnight care.
Home care can be sought for anyone over the age of 18 all the way up to 100 and beyond, and we can also provide care to support with specific conditions – such as industry-accredited dementia care. By choosing care at home, you are also choosing to stay in the environment you know and love, instead of moving into local care homes.

A tracheostomy is an opening into the trachea through the neck just below the larynx through which an indwelling tube is placed and thus an artificial airway is created. It is used for clients needing long-term airway support.
Nurses provide tracheostomy care for clients with new or recent tracheostomy to maintain patency of the tube and minimize the risk for infection (since the inhaled air by the client is no longer filtered by the upper airways). Initially a tracheostomy may need to be suctioned and cleaned as often as every 1 to 2 hours. After the initial inflammatory response subsides, tracheostomy care may only need to be done once or twice a day, depending on the client.
Tracheostomy care involves application of scientific knowledge, sterile technique, and problem solving, and therefore needs to be performed by a nurse or respiratory therapist.
- Complications and Risks of Tracheostomy
- Air trapped around the lungs (pneumothorax).
- Air trapped in the deeper layers of the chest (pneumomediastinum).
- Air trapped underneath the skin around the tracheostomy (subcutaneous emphysema).
- Damage to the swallowing tube (esophagus).
