Visiting Nurse & Home Care
Home healthcare is an essential part of healthcare today, touching the lives of nearly every American. It includes a broad range of professional healthcare and support services provided in the home.
As hospital stays decrease, increasing numbers of patients need highly-skilled services when they return home. Homecare is necessary when a person needs ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends.
Home healthcare services include assisting those persons who are recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill and are in need of medical, nursing, social, or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with the essential activities of daily living.
We offer a wide range of nursing and therapy services that meet the needs of homebound patients who require skilled care as ordered by your physician.
Skilled Nursing Care
At the heart of our services is skilled nursing. Our experienced staff is trained to meet the special challenges presented in the home environment. Our nurses work directly with physicians and other members of the health care team to develop the most effective treatment plan for each individual. We offer the compassionate, innovative, quality care that is so important to your health and well being.
Our staff of licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists are available to provide rehabilitation therapy as prescribed by your physician. Patients progress more rapidly when therapy is provided in the comfort of their home.
Sometimes the most difficult part of coping with an illness is trying to understand it. Our Visiting Nurse professionals are experts at educating patients and their families about a particular disease process, treatment, therapy and/or medication program. Using easy-to-understand educational material, patients learn about their disease and treatment, and how their involvement can help improve their condition and enhance their quality of life.
Our registered nurses can provide this therapy or teach patients or their family how to safely administer the treatment in their own home.
In cases where cognitive or emotional problems result from an illness, injury or change in life situation, we can provide professional counseling. We work closely with your physician to ensure that the most appropriate support is provided.
Assessment and Evaluations
Our highly-skilled professionals are trained to assess the home care needs of individual patients to determine what services are needed. Families and patients may call us directly (570) 421-5390 for a free in-home evaluation.
Because of a medical condition, the simple act of brushing one's hair or putting on a shirt can be a difficult task. Our home health aides assist patients with activities such as bathing, feeding, or ambulating and transferring from bed to chair or commode. The comfort and peace of mind that these important tasks provide when completed is invaluable.
