1. Nursing

Home health nursing staff perform a range of tasks for patients in their homes such as therapy, diabetic care, post-operative care, wound care, administer medication to patients, assist them with daily activities such as bathing, feeding, etc, and much more.

Home health care is a safe and cost-effective solution for patients while staying in the comfort of their own homes.

Our treatment protocol & services are always customized as per the requirements of the patients based upon the thorough assessment conducted by a certified nurse.

The frequency of the visits depends upon the patient’s needs and treatment plan.

All our nurses are professionally certified & equipped to handle all medical situations. Most of our nurses have experience in Intensive Care Units (ICU).

2. Medical Social Worker

The duties & responsibilities of Medical social workers are manifold and include helping patients and their families cope with the emotional & social responses to illness & treatment. They educate patients and their families on disability benefits, community resources, health insurance coverage, financial counseling, and much more.

Medical Social Workers have a Master's degree in Social work.

The essential work skills of a medical social worker are:

• Strong interpersonal skills to forge meaningful relationships with patients and their families.

• Organizational skills to oversee and maintain detailed treatment plans.

• Problem-solving skills to find innovative solutions to unique situations.

• Communication skills (Verbal and written) to express themselves to a variety of people and contexts.

• Critical thinking skills are required to taking important decisions affecting lives.

Outpatient medical social workers provide an array of services including supporting and helping patients and their families as well as a continuum of care after discharge from the hospital. They handle paperwork and crises; provide counselling & therapy, and referral to social services.

Medical social work provides an opportunity for individuals to bring changes in the lives of people and make a meaningful contribution to society at large. They contribute to important social issues such as poverty, disability, inequality, etc.

3. Wound Care

You may require wound care in the following situations:

  • Non-healing wounds or wounds that haven’t improved over two weeks.

  • Wounds that have worsened, and you need a new treatment plan.

  • Complex wound care needs.

  • Special catheters.

  • Complicated treatment orders.

  • New Stage III and IV pressure ulcers.

  • Needs for preventative skin measures (e.g., appropriate support surface, moisture management).

  • Wounds as a result of certain medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

The dressing should be changed as often as required to keep the wound drainage from soaking the gauze. This could mean anywhere between 1 to 4 times a day. In certain cases, the frequency could be more.

There are several factors that slow wound healing including poor nutrition, obesity, smoking, bacteria, certain diseases such as diabetes or diseases of the liver, kidney, or lungs etc.

A wound puts extra pressure on your body. Therefore more calories and nutrients are required to accelerate the healing process. A good diet is a pre-requisite for faster healing. Your Health Care provider will educate you on your nutritional requirements, as per the situation.

Wound dressings fasten the body’s natural healing process and provide an optimal healing environment. The choice of dressing depends on the wound’s features and stage of healing. Appropriate dressing selection is decided by the certified wound care provider as per the requirements.

4. Physical Therapy

Yes, everyone benefits from physical therapy in varying degrees. The combined efforts of the therapist and the patient deliver results as per the medical condition of the patient.

Physical therapy is different for older adults as their various medical conditions and challenges warrant modifications in the therapy process. The time taken to recover is slower. We ensure the recovery of older adults gradually over a period of time.

Physical therapy is beneficial for a wide range of issues such as:

  • Pain relief.

  • Improve movement or ability.

  • Prevent disability or surgery.

  • Rehabilitation after a stroke, accident, injury, joint replacement, or surgery.

  • Improving balance and fall prevention.

  • Managing a chronic illness like diabetes, heart disease, or arthritis

  • Adapting to an artificial limb.

  • Learning to use assistive devices.

  • Recovering from or prevent sports injuries.

  • Managing age-related conditions such as Arthritis or Osteoporosis.

The six main types of Physical Therapy:

  • Pediatric Physical Therapy

  • Geriatric Physical Therapy

  • Orthopedic Physical Therapy

  • Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy

  • Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy

  • Neurological Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists undergo rigorous training and obtain certifications, which give them the experience and education to provide the highest standards of care. The therapy plan is aimed at recovery or improving physical abilities as well as protection against future injuries.

5. Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is beneficial for a wide range of issues such as:

  • Preventing repeated hospitalization.

  • Regaining independence after injuries, illnesses or surgeries.

  • Improving memory & cognitive skills.

  • Finding meaningful employment as a result of disability.

  • Coping with chronic pain.

  • Adaptive equipment and home modifications.

  • Increasing strength and endurance for functional tasks.

  • Improving functional cognition and visual processing.

Initial evaluation & assessment lasts about 60 minutes, with subsequent visits generally lasting 30-45 minutes.

In order for the therapy process to be a success, be aware, and ask pertinent questions. Discuss aspects that will impact your therapy process if it hasn’t been raised by the therapist. If there is something you do not understand, ask.

The primary goals of therapy are to encourage, sustain & restore functional independence in daily living skills.

Physical therapists treat limited parts of the human body that need care while occupational therapists focus on the patient’s entire well being. Occupational therapy is broad-based, encompassing, and holistic in its approach. Choosing the type of therapy depends on your specific condition and individual needs.

6. Home Health Aides

No. Our warm, friendly and compassionate aides provide personal care in the home – activities such as bathing and grooming, medication reminders and checking vitals. However, if you need assistance with cooking and running errands, we suggest hiring homemaker services, also known as personal care assistants or companions.

Yes, Medicare covers the cost of a health aide if you require skilled care (skilled nursing or therapy services). It will not cover if you only require personal care and not need skilled care.

The difference between a caregiver and a Home Health Aide is that the aide is certified after undergoing a professional course as compared to a caregiver who is not certified.

7. Speech Language Pathologists

Yes. Speech pathologists referred to as speech therapists by society at large are now called Speech-language pathologists or SLP.

The work of a speech-language pathologist entails assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients with speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders. Persons suffering from dysphagia, dysphoria, or communication problems are among those who benefit from the services of a speech-language pathologist.

The length of the therapy differs from person to person as the speed and pattern of improvement differs. Progress is evaluated on a regular basis.

  • Improvement in the ability to understand and express thoughts, ideas and feelings.

  • Increased ability to problem-solve in an independent environment.
