- Communicating with doctors
- Home visits by a nurse
- Physical therapy at home
- Speech therapy at home
- Assistance finding community programs
An initial assessment
We come to your loved one's home and conduct an assessment of how things stand right now. We look at the strengths and weaknesses of the current situation. Then we make recommendations for care that we can provide to help your loved one become as strong, healthy and independent as possible. Typically this will involve a nurse or therapist coming to the home to teach you and your loved one new skills for coping with current medical conditions.(Return to top)
Communicating with doctors
If you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the medical system, you are not alone! It can be daunting for anyone. We are available to answer your questions, explain the care recommended by the doctor, and help your loved one meet his or her health goals. If a problem develops over the course of treatment, we can talk to your doctor and find out what he or she recommends. This means you can be liberated from the role of medical advocate and can instead use that time and energy to provide the love and support that only a family member can give.(Return to top)
Home visits by a nurse
Sometimes the difference between staying at home and having to go to a facility is as simple as periodic visits from a nurse. Our nurses teach and advise patients and family members. They also help by coordinating the treatment plan with other members of the health care team.(Return to top)
Physical therapy at home
Our physical therapists can make home visits to help your loved one regain strength and the ability to function as independently as possible. Based upon a complete evaluation and recommendations from the doctor, our physical therapists develop a personalized and therapeutic rehabilitation program. We use a variety of treatment techniques so we can find the best approach to meet the individual needs and desires of our patients.(Return to top)
Speech therapy at home
If your relative has had a stroke or other condition that makes communication difficult, we can help. Our trained speech therapists provide corrective and rehabilitative treatment using a variety of techniques. They develop a personalized program designed to address problems and recommendations identified by the doctor and the initial assessment.(Return to top)
Assistance finding community programs
Our goal is to improve or maintain the physical health of each patient. But we also pay attention to the social and emotional health of the patient and family. Family members need support too! You can't always do everything on your own. Sometimes that means getting outside help. Our social workers can help locate programs available for families in situations similar to yours.(Return to top)
