At a time when increased demands are being made on an overburdened and costly health care delivery system, we believe that increased utilization of the home as a therapeutic environment may assist this problem and that notable savings can be realized. Patients are happier, more comfortable and more closely attended when they receive health care services in their own homes. The patients really appreciate the opportunity to preserve much of their independence by remaining at home and to be able to participate in their health care management since they are in familiar surroundings. The home care experience is very satisfying and rewarding, not only for the patient, but also for the patient’s family and patient care team. There is also quicker recovery and less risk that the patient is exposed to nosocomial and secondary infections as they would be in the hospital environment.
Licensed nursing services are provided according to an individualized treatment plan under the direction of the patient’s physician and supervised by our director of nursing. We will also provide support for other health professionals in the home through our multi-disciplinary approach- including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapy, dietary consultation, medical social workers, and certified home health aides as ordered by the patient’s doctor.
