Different Types of Home Health Care Services
At Santé, we strive to provide a compassionate continuum of care by offering a variety of services to patients in the comfort of their home. Our home health care services include different types of nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Patients can also receive in-home care from social workers and home health aides.
If you’re a caregiver or patient looking for home health care services, then you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the following services available through Santé Home Health.
Transitioning back home after an unexpected hospital stay can be a trying time. Give your loved one the support they need with a skilled home nurse. Skilled nursing services include:
- Cardiopulmonary assessment
- Medication management
- Disease process education and management
- Wound care
- Intravenous therapy management
There are specific healing techniques that only a trained physical therapist knows. Most patients prefer to do physical therapy sessions in the privacy of their own home. With a physical therapist, patients will see many benefits, including:
- Improved endurance
- Rehabilitation following surgery
- Enhanced gait (walking technique) training
- Increased mobility and strength
An occupational therapist is an ideal support benefit for a new caregiver or family member who may not know what their patient needs. For example, there may be safety hazards that an occupational therapist can help identify. Having an occupational therapist come to your home can help in these ways:
- Improve patient’s ability to perform daily self care
- Restore independence in the home
- Provide adaptive equipment recommendations for the home
A speech therapist is important for regaining the ability to speak and improving cognitive deficiencies. You might consider hiring a speech therapist if your loved one has trouble responding to questions or is showing signs of being unable to avoid potentially dangerous situations. Speech therapy is often needed after a stroke. With regular sessions, patients will see:
- Improvement in ability to speak
- Improvement in swallowing
- Improvement in cognitive deficiencies
These are just some of the home health services offered at Santé. Patients can also receive in-home care from social workers and home health aides who provide emotional support, light housekeeping, and safety standby assistance. Specialized programming is available for those with COPD, pain, and congestive heart failure.
