Pneumonia

I am currently writing a scene involving pneumomia for my NaNo project. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anything on the treatment of pneumonia (that doesn't involve advanced scientific names for medicine that only a doctor would understand) or a day-by-day sort of, I don't know, guide to the illness that would tell me how to write this. This takes place in the seventies, in the US. So, my question is, do any of you know how someone would treat a person deathly ill with pneumonia, who cannot be moved from his house?
