When it comes to caring for seniors, different levels are available to ensure everyone receives the assistance they need. Placing individuals in long-term care before it’s necessary can have negative results both physically and mentally. Senior home health care services occur within your own home to improve your quality of life, health, and well-being. These services also help you to avoid the need for placement in a long-term care community prematurely.
What Are Senior Home Health Care Services?
Senior home health care is skilled nursing or rehabilitation services provided within a person’s home by licensed professional nurses and therapists. Typically, home health care is short-term while an individual recovers from surgery, illness or injury or learns to maintain a chronic disease such as diabetes. Here are some examples of home health care services:
- Wound and skin care
- Medication management
- Pain management
- Injections, IV therapies and lab draws
- Physical, occupational and speech therapy
- Management of chronic diseases, such as COPD, diabetes and congestive heart failure
- Nutritional guidance
- Remote monitoring
Through these senior home health care services, individuals can remain in their own home and continue living independently. Family members can also rest easy knowing that their loved one is receiving essential care without having to relocate.
