When To Get An In-Home Nurse For A Loved One.
Who are In-Home Nurses?
An in-home nurse, home care nurse, medical caregiver, or even home health caregiver is the name given to someone who is a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and those who provide medical assistance to patients in the comfort of their own home, instead of the patient going into nursing home care or long-term care facility.
Our In-Home Nurses are registered nurses (RNs) or licensed practical nurses (LPN) that provide skilled medical care, including administering medications and injections, monitoring vital signs, dressing wounds, and performing medical therapies.
Cargivers provide non-medical personal services (ADLs and IADL types of tasks), such as making meals, light cleaning, bathing, grooming, toileting, and transporting clients to appointments. They can assist in organizing or reminding clients about their medication schedule.
Hope Companion Homemakers mainly help with non-medical home care, but usually don’t perform personal duties for the client such as grooming, bathing, and personal relieving assistance.
When you are recovering from an illness or injury, skilled nursing services can help you get back to doing the things you love as quickly as your treatment allows. Our nurses evaluate your condition on each visit and work with your physician to develop a goal-driven treatment plan.
Our expert care team works to improve your quality of life, independence and prevent unwanted hospital visits on your road to recovery.
