These are just some examples of the services we offer. Feel free to call and talk with us about how we can customize a care plan to meet your needs!
Transitional Care Assessment
This service is provided by a Registered Nurse (RN) and/or a Social Worker, and is utilized to assess the level of care a client needs on discharge from an acute care hospital. The Assessment evaluates whether a client could live at home with appropriate assistance, or needs an assisted living facility or group home of some kind. It also includes identifying at least three (3) facilities or agencies that provide the appropriate service, and allows the family to choose the best one to meet their specific needs. This service is complimentary if the client is awaiting discharge from an acute care hospital.
Private Duty Nursing
A Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), operating under their own nursing license, may be contracted through our agency to assist with services such as medication setup and oversight, wound care, dressing changes, skin care, catheterization, blood draws, etc. These services are offered at an additional fee and would be charged seperately from your regular service agreement.
This service is intended for a client/patient living at home or in a facility who has exhausted their Medicare or private insurance home health benefit, yet still needs the expertise of a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). This can include development and oversight of the plan of care, including oversight of non-licensed staff, as well as the Private Duty Nursing services described above. It can also include accompanying the client to the doctor or other medical appointments and contacting family following the visit, with permission of client.
Some families living a long distance from a loved one gain great peace of mind from a program which allows an RN or LVN visit on a regular basis to assess the health status of their parent or family member. This service is provided at higher rates than routine home care services.
