When an individual is unable to perform their daily tasks themselves, home care in Miami FL can help. A tailored plan will be developed to care for a patient’s needs. Home care can be delivered in a hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation facility, assisted living facilities, retirement communities or in the home of a patient.
Caregivers can provide services for patients that have been diagnosed with:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Heart Disease
- Mental Illness
- And so much more.
Home care in Miami FL can be on an hourly or live-in basis. Registered nurses, RNs and licensed practical nurses (LPNs), can educate a patient or family about a patient’s specific condition and communicate the physician about any changes or concerns that are noticed. They can help with:
- Wound care.
- Post-operative care.
- Range of motion exercises.
- Case management.
- Cardiac and respiratory care.
- Nutrition therapy.
- And many other health concerns that can occur.
The first step that should occur when home health care is needed is an evaluation of the patient and their family. This helps the ALC Home Health to determine the right caregiver. Once the evaluation is complete, the director of nursing will complete a health care plan that will meet the patient’s requirements. A patient could need assistance with bathing, dressing, feeding themselves, mobility and other personal needs they may not be able to complete alone. A caregiver is matched to a patient based on their personality, skills, and experience. The caregiver will review a patient’s profile so they can ask any questions they may have before they begin their assignment.
Caregivers should be both bonded and insured, and the agency should be licensed by the state. In-home personal care can help a patient who needs assistance with laundry, housekeeping, shop, run errands, or to provide companionship. They can help provide meal preparation and feeding as part of their in-home services. Caregivers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to answer calls and questions a patient may have. When a loved one needs some additional help to recover from an illness, injury or age, ALC Home Health can help.
