Do Nurses Still Make House Calls?

Do Nurses Still Make House Calls?


Back in the day, when more people lived in smaller communities and townships, as opposed to the densely populated cities and sprawling suburbs that dominate today’s landscape, house calls were far more common from medical professionals. Nurses and even doctors would routinely make house calls when needed. This still happens in some rural communities in the United States today, but it’s far rarer. But is there a way for you or an elderly loved one to get a nurse to visit you in your home? Do nurses still make house calls?

In-Home Care

Executive Care is a health care agency that is dedicated to improving the lives of seniors. Mostly, we do this by providing care for seniors in their own homes. Many seniors don’t like the idea of moving into a nursing home or maybe they can’t afford it. In-home care is more convenient and almost always more affordable. In-home care is provided by caregivers. Caregivers are great. They’re bonded, insured, have passed a rigorous background check. They can help with anything from mobility issues, to keeping your home tidy, to keeping you company and helping you to maintain your mental acuity.

But there are somethings that caregivers cannot do. Caregivers are trained and able to handle a great many tasks. But they are not medical professionals; they have not gone to nursing school. For certain advice and procedures, you need a skilled nurse. Then you have to leave your home, trudge off to a clinic, and wait in the reception area for an hour before seeing them. Or do you? Is there a way to get a registered nurse to make a house call?

Skilled Nursing Home Care

Executive Care is proud to provide skilled nursing home care. In this sense we mean skilled nurses providing home care to their clients (not care delivered in nursing homes). The lion’s share of any senior’s care will still be provided by a caregiver. But when a nurse is required to provide skilled care, we can often arrange for that nurse to visit you in your own home. You don’t have to go anywhere! It’s all about getting you the care you need in the most convenient manner possible.

Skilled Nursing Home Care Services

Nurses can’t do absolutely everything in your home. There are obviously going to be limitations to the number of services they can provide. But they can provide quite a few services in home. Some skilled nursing home care services include:

  • Assessments & Consultations
  • Medication Management
  • Simple Wound Care
  • Diabetes Care & Teaching
  • Colostomy Care
  • Feeding Tube Care
  • Foley Care
  • And more!

Please note that not all skilled nursing home care services are available in every state. Please talk with us to find out what skilled nursing home care services are available to you.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
