Learn all about home nursing care and discover just how practical, helpful, and beneficial it can be for you or an elderly parent or family member.
What Is Home Nursing Care?
The first thing we should make clear is that home nursing care is not care provided in nursing homes. Nursing homes are long-term care facilities that house seniors with high-level needs. Home nursing care involves nurses visiting patients in their own homes to provide a variety of services. Of course some services always require going to see a nurse at a hospital or clinic, but the vast range of services available in-home may surprise you.
What Nursing Services Are Available In-Home?
At Executive Care, we can schedule a registered nurse to visit our clients in their own homes as part of our skilled care program. Skilled care helps us achieve our organizational goal to provide healthcare to our clients in the easiest and most convenient way possible. With our skilled care program, a nurse can visit our clients and provide a range of services, including:
Assessments & Consultations
Simple Wound Care
Diabetes Care & Teaching
Feeding Tube Care
Please note that not all skilled care services are necessarily available in all fifty states. Please talk with us to find out if we can provide the in-home nursing care services in which you are interested where you live.
The Advantages Of In-Home Nursing Care
You may think that the days of the house call are long, but that’s not entirely true. While it’s rare for doctors to make house calls in much of the country today, nurses do make house calls. If you work with the right organization, that is. With our skilled nursing care, you can receive a variety of services without ever having to leave your home.
The major advantage of this is pretty obvious: convenience. Going to hospitals and clinics is not exactly fun. Especially with Covid-19 still being such a problem, there’s more reason than ever to avoid going to a hospital if you can. And what if you have an injury, wound, or other ailment? It’s no fun to travel in that condition. In-home nursing care means you don’t have to go anywhere. A nurse can visit you and help you where you live. This care can also be very educational. Nurses help their clients and their families learn how to manage medication, diabetes, and more.
