What is Skilled Home Health Care and How Does it Work?

Learn about skilled home health care, a form of in-home care that can deliver specialized services to the elderly and people living with disabilities.

Skilled Home Health Care Goes Above And Beyond What Other Forms Of In-home Care Can Provide.

In many respects, there has never been a better time in history to be a senior. A big reason for this is the widespread access to care. Not all elderly people need or want care, of course, but many do. More seniors need care than the number of younger people with disabilities who do, for example. And now that care has never been easier to access. Until relatively recently, for most seniors in America, needing care meant moving into a nursing home; there was no other option.

Now seniors can receive care in their own homes. Caregivers visit them and provide companionship, homemaking services, and personal care. Our caregivers must pass a stringent pre-employment screening in order to be hired. Furthermore, they are bonded and insured and we closely supervise and monitor their work. Our caregivers are good people and they are able to help our clients with a great many services. But they do have their limitations. That’s where skilled home health care can help.

Skilled Home Health Care Is Provided By Registered Nurses.

While caregivers are awesome and experienced at what they do, they are not registered nurses. Nurses are qualified and able to do things that caregivers can’t. For most of us, when we have to see a nurse, we must travel to them, typically to a clinic or hospital. But Executive offers skilled home health care in which nurses visit our clients in their own homes. That’s right, we can arrange for nurses to make house calls.

What Services Are Covered By Skilled Home Health Care?

Nurses can’t do everything in the private home of a client; there are limitations. If you need access to special equipment or machinery, then you will have to go to a clinic or hospital. But there are a number of services that nurses can provide in-home. These services include:

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

Skilled home health care services might not be available in all states. Please talk with us to find out what skilled care services are available to be provided in-home where you live.
