Food, Form And Function

Our specialty program has been created to ensure an optimal life for senior citizens. Our solutions are aimed at enhancing activities of daily life (ADL). Improvements with regard to daily tasks and the use of adaptive equipment can increase the quality of life & confidence with self-care. This all-inclusive program enables the senior citizens to lead fulfilling & enriching lives as well as regain the confidence to live their lives with independence & vigor.

Pure Home Health Care will utilize various therapy techniques, utilization of adaptive equipment, or other strategies such as sensory/tech approach, modalities (US, heat, etc.) environmental adaptations & cues.

The Nurse:

  • Educates the caregivers and the patient on optimal nourishment and hygiene. Dietician services may be requested if needed for assistance in optimal nourishment.

  • Identifies and assists potential solutions with behavior or mental concerns, such as Depression, which is one of the biggest causes of decreased appetite and hygiene.

  • Educates the caregivers and the patient on optimal physical ability.

  • Depression may mimic as Dementia or Alzheimer’s and is one of the biggest causes of functional decline. The nurse helps in differentiating and treatment of Depression and Dementia.
