Under a Physician’s order, the Home Life Healthcare Team can provide one or more of the following services:

 

Skilled Nurses

A registered Nurse coordinates patient’s care, oversees progress and helps patients and caregivers understand:

  • Stages of Illness and Recovery
  • Use of Medication and Diet
  • Recognition of Symptoms in Recurring Illness
  • Treatment Procedures (i.e. wound care, oxygen therapy, care of indwelling catheters, etc.)
  • Patients Rights and Advance Directives

 

Chronic Disease Management

Our Chronic Care Management Program from Home Life Healthcare helps patients with chronic illnesses – such as diabetes, heart failure and breathing problems – to better manage their health and achieve the best quality of life possible.

Our skilled, certified nurses help patients in their homes learn ways to manage their illness. Through coaching and education, patients and families learn self-management skills that help them feel more confident to live a healthier lifestyle.

Post Joint Replacement Therapy

The goal of physical therapy after joint replacement surgery is to help restore you to your highest level of function, improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Our experienced physical therapists complete a thorough evaluation and will discuss your goals post-operatively in order to develop a treatment program best suited to your individual needs.

Patient and family education is also provided. While our therapists provide encouragement as you work toward your goals, commitment and active involvement also plays a key role in recovery. Because we understand the link between mobility and living a healthy lifestyle, our focus is to return you to the activities you enjoy.

 

IV Infusion

IV therapy, or infusion therapy, is the administration of intravenous fluids and medications. IV therapy can now be done in the comfort of your own home.

IV therapy is most often used for pain management, treatment of infections, chemotherapy and to manage other conditions. Our professional staff at Home Life Healthcare is available to administer your IV therapy and work closely with your doctor to adjust dosages & treatment if necessary.

We provide support, guidance and motivation.

 

Ostomy Management

At Home Life Healthcare, we offer knowledgeable and supportive nursing care to ostomy patients to help them regain their independence at home. Specially certified wound, ostomy and continence care nurses visit patients’ homes to teach them how to care for their ostomy and live comfortably.

 

Fall Prevention

Reducing your risk of falling is a critical way to help stay healthy and independent as long as possible. At Home Life Healthcare, we help reduce those risks. Our expert staff will come to your home to:

  • Evaluate any safety issues and provide suggestions on how to address them
  • Teach you how to get around safely both inside and outside your home
  • Help you with balance issues, using crutches, a walker, a cane, or a wheelchair

The purpose of this service is to help you avoid a potentially life-threatening fall – and to deliver peace of mind for both you and your loved ones.
