Santé offers a variety of services provided to patients in the comfort of their home. This is to ensure everyone can receive a compassionate continuum of care throughout their recovery. Services include nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, social workers and home health aides. A home health care provider can improve the quality of life for those recovering from a hospital stay, fighting a terminal disease or nearing the end of life.
A physical therapist who comes to the patient’s home can help with rehabilitation and gaining the physical strength to do normal daily activities. Certain exercises and movements can help relieve pain and even help prevent future ailments by building up endurance and increasing mobility.
With occupational therapy, a patient can improve their quality of life by building up the skills they need to restore their independence. For someone who is terminally ill or recovering from a hospital stay, sometimes even taking a shower is something that is very difficult. It might require adapting the environment or instilling confidence to keep trying.
