Our in-home skilled nursing team may be able to help. Whether you have private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare, you may qualify for this support.
Most patients find that they are happier and nurtured better by staying in their own homes as long as possible. There is a level of comfort and affection at home that is hard to achieve in an out-of-home setting. More interaction with family just naturally happens. Staying at home solves the problem of family members having to go to a facility to see their loved ones, too.
The home health services are commonly used to assist those who are considered “homebound.” Someone who is homebound generally cannot walk or move without the aid of a wheelchair, walker or cane, for example. They also may need help with transportation and assistance from someone else like a caregiver. “Homebound” doesn’t mean that the person is unable to ever leave the home. It’s just a term to identify significant physical impairment that interferes with everyday living.
By using our skilled nursing services in the home, you’ll be able to get the individualized care that you need. There won’t be the need to wait until your nurse has taken care of many other patients. You’ll have plenty of time to receive care tailored to your diagnosis and medical needs. You and your loved ones will be able to talk with your nurse in greater depth about how things have been going and what steps to take in the future as well.
Recovery from illness, an accident or the need for assistance with other debilitating physical conditions are good reasons to consider home nursing. There is a long list of ailments that your nurse will be able to help you with including but not limited to wound care, monitoring of vitals, pain management, disease and medication management.
