Bonita Springs Healthcare Services
Whether you are recovering from an accident or rehabilitating after surgery, medical care is an essential support on your healing journey.
There are times when it’s necessary to visit a doctor or healthcare provider in an office, but many of your necessary services are available in the convenience of your own home.
Home health services are personally designed to suit the needs of each patient. Reach out to our team at Bonita Springs Healthcare to learn more about how you can benefit from a customized treatment plan.
What are Home Health Services?
Home health services include comprehensive nursing and rehabilitation support offered in the comfort of your home. Nurses and medical experts come to your residence to provide ongoing care according to your treatment plan.
Specific services are catered to your unique needs based on doctor recommendations. Home health benefits can include a variety of services, such as:
Full-service care coordination and treatment, including routine treatments such as wound care, IV infusion, symptom control, and medication management.
In-home help to support activities for daily living and personal care assistance, such as bathing, grooming, eating, and more.
Recuperative care and therapeutic exercises to improve balance, strength, and mobility.
The assessment and treatment of a variety of speech and language disorders to improve communication. Speech therapists can also provide services to assist patients with swallowing disorders.
An assessment of the home environment and the patient’s ability to function safely within the home. Then, the occupational therapist develops adaptive learning techniques to promote a safe living environment and maximize independence.
In addition to caring for the patient, it’s just as important to support the needs of the family. Social workers offer education and counseling for patients and their families and connect the patient/family with community resources. They can also help navigate the complexities of advance care planning to ensure treatment wishes are known and honored.
Following an injury, accident, illness, or surgery, home health services provide medical care to stabilize or restore a patient to a prior level of functioning. The goal is to offer treatments that aid in recovery and help the patient regain independence.
This ongoing care is provided through a combination of skilled Home Health professionals working in conjunction with the patient, family, or their caregivers. These home health visits are intermittent. The priority is on educating the patient, family, and caregivers to continue the essential levels of care between professional visits from home health specialists.
Benefits of Home Health Services
As you learn more about home health care, it’s easy to see how these services offer many benefits to both the patient and their family members. Here are a few benefits you can expect if you choose home health:
An alternative (in many cases) to spending time in skilled nursing facilities
Convenience for the patient and family members
Physician supervision of the care plan, so services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual
Recovery in familiar surroundings that helps to minimize stress, support healing, and improve the quality of life for the patient
Ongoing medical care that may prevent avoidable trips to the emergency room or hospital re-admission
Quality medical care provided in the comfort and privacy of the patient’s home or Assisted Living Facility
Additionally, access to home health services often results in a shorter hospital stay following an injury, illness, or surgery that created a need for ongoing care. Once a patient is stable, they can go home without sacrificing the quality of available medical care. Patients continue to receive the routine medical services ordered by their physician.
Managing Medical Care After Time in the Hospital
Too often, patients feel rushed because insurance companies want to save money by reducing the hospital stay. However, when a patient continues to require ongoing medical support, it leaves patients and families feeling unprepared to manage care at home. Early hospital discharge is easier to handle when each patient has support on the other side: ongoing in-home health care support.
Home Health is designed to be a solution when a patient heads home after spending time in the hospital. These services pick up where the hospital leaves off and helps ease the transition back home. It’s a smoother transition when patients have hands-on care, and families are educated on treatments.
