Three In-Home Healthcare Services Med1Care Provides
Home healthcare means offering medical care in the comfort of the patient’s own home. Home-healthcare plans are designed to make your loved one feel dignified without sacrificing convenience or comfort. In-home healthcare services are ideal for aging people, people managing chronic health issues, people recovering from a major illness, and those who need assistance to live independently. Professional care is given by skilled medical professionals, such as aides, nurses, and therapists. Some of the services these professionals offer include personal care, skilled nursing care, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and even companionship. If your loved one has serious medical issues, whether temporary or lifelong, consider a registered nurse from Med1Care. They provide the following services:
• Full-Service Nursing Care
It’s not easy for patients to take care of themselves after a major injury or surgery. Our skilled nurses, including registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs), provide post-surgical care by setting up a personalized care plan. These plans typically include the following facets: assistance with getting in and out of bed, changing bed sheets, dressing wounds, administering medication, helping with pain control, and monitoring general health. We also provide other services, such as post-acute care, education about disease management, and education about managing specific conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, nosebleeds, etc.
• In-Home Healthcare Aides for Personal Care
Certified nursing assistants and in-home healthcare aides can assist patients by providing overnight-sleepover services, shopping for groceries, preparing meals, and by helping with feeding. We assist clients by checking their pulse, temperature, and respiration rate, and we perform housekeeping duties like laundry, washing dishes, and vacuuming. We also assist with daily personal tasks like bathing, eating, and dressing. Our in-home healthcare aides allow seniors to receive medication and treatment from the comfort of their own home. Our services are great if you’re recovering from an injury or illness, such as hypertension, heart failure, diabetes, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
• In-Home Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy Services
When nursing is not enough, we offer therapy services—physical, occupational, and speech/language therapy services to be exact. Our physical therapists will set up a care plan, that way you can decrease pain, maximize function, and treat physical illness. Bed rest and inactivity can lead to muscle weakness and deterioration of strength. Occupational therapists focus on physical, developmental, social, and emotional disabilities. Through the use of high-intensity exercise techniques, we help patients perform daily activities, such as dressing, bathing, and eating. Speech therapists can help people recovering from a stroke or dementia. We also help with speech issues related to aging. With vocal exercises, our therapists help patients re-learn to speak and communicate effectively.
