Absolute Compassion has a full staff of clinical professionals to help our patients achieve their health care goals. Home health patients can qualify for one or more of the following:
Nurses assess the patient to determine the need for home health, as well as the appropriate type and length of care. Nurses perform medical care procedures such as placing and maintaining catheters, wound care and blood draws. Nurses consult with the patient's physician about treatment, and commonly serve as the care team leader.
Social workers work closely with patients, families and caregivers to create and maintain a supportive care setting. They are available to help patients and families deal with personal, financial, emotional and care planning issues that arise, such as setting up community resources for the patient.
Occupational therapists and physical therapy services help maximize the independence, quality of life and safety of patient and family through exercises. Speech therapists can help the patient to communicate, even if he or she cannot speak.
Home health aides are trained nursing assistants who provide personal care to the patient. They help the patient and family with activities of daily living, such as grooming, bathing, changing bed linens and skin care.
