Here are some examples of the types of services that can be provided by the healthcare professionals visiting you. If any of these services are related to your specific needs, you would likely benefit from having our professionals visit you at home. These are only examples and the lists do not represent all possibilities.
Our experienced staff will prepare, coordinate, and guide each patient's customized plan of care. Skilled nurses provide multiple services including wound care, post-surgical care, disease management, as well as education.
Our expert team of physical therapists will help patients' with recovery after surgeries (e.g. knee-replacement), in case of fall injuries or long-term health problems (e.g. back pain, rheumatoid arthritis). Our licensed physical therapists will examine you and make a treatment plan. Depending on your health problem, our therapist will help you with flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and/or balance.
Occupational therapy is treatment to help people live as independently as possible. Our occupational therapist will use work, self-care, and recreational activities to increase independent function. Occupational therapists can often assist a patient in regaining independence in the activities of daily living (ADL) such as dressing, bathing, and meal preparation. By doing so, the patient can be maintained in the home rather than in an assisted living or skilled nursing facility.
Speech therapy services assist the patient in restoring language and communication skills to improve quality of life. Patients with diagnoses such as head and neck cancers, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson's disease, among others may benefit from speech therapy.
Home Health Aid Services
You may be eligible for home health aide services if you need assistance with personal care while being treated at home by a nurse, physical therapist, and/or speech language pathologist. Home health aide services are provided on an intermittent basis. The services the aide provides will be determined by the nurse in accordance with your physician and based on your specific needs.
The primary function of the home health aide is to provide assistance with personal care and limited household functions.
Social services can provide the patient and family with assistance in many areas.
