Everyone needs a little help especially as we grow older, fall ill or become disabled. Sometimes we reach a point where we are no longer able to take care of ourselves or a family member’s daily duties or medical needs. This is typically a tough realization for most people, however, many have found that Home Assist and Home Health provide invaluable help in their daily lives. So what is Home Assist? With Home Assist and Home Health, a professional is sent directly to your home in order to offer supportive services for non-medical and/or medical based needs. These supportive services are provided to the elderly, chronically ill, children and the disabled.
Through Home Assist, caregivers assist patients with their daily duties or non-medical needs. Based on a specific patient’s needs, caregivers can help with basic services such as home cleaning or running errands to more personal care services such as bathing or feeding. Home Assist is also available to help out new moms with infant care or provide aide to a sick child.
For medical-based needs, Home Health provides medical-based home health services from a registered nurse, LPN or therapist. Trained professionals can assist with post-surgical care, medication management, pediatric care, Alzheimer’s disease and other skilled services.
Under both programs, potential patients will meet with a licensed nurse or supervisor in order to create a customized plan fitting that patient’s specific needs. With Home Health, the patient’s physician will also take part in coming up with a plan for care. Upon meeting with a nurse or supervisor, initial care for Home Assist can begin in as little as 24 hours while Home Health medical-based care can begin within 48 hours.
Those who struggle or who have a family member that struggles with daily tasks or medical needs have found great assistance with these programs. Home Assist and Home Health provides invaluable help to people up to 24 hours a day/seven days per week.
