Hi. My husband had a 4 day stay in hospital before xmas with a chest infection but what a good thing came out of this. On the fourth day I received a phone call to say the Community Respitary team where taking over his care at home. After 7 years of feeling so frightened of this disease,we have now got our own Respitary nurse 364 days a year. One phone call and 30 minutes later they are at the door with nebuliser .They do all his vital signs. We also have a community matron starting this week.They are all over the Country. You can ask your doctor for a referral. It is a frightening disease when you r on your own. Take care
