CareSource at Home can provide a service or combination of services in your home – all under the direction of a physician. Working with your doctor, our qualified staff will plan, coordinate and provide care tailored to your needs. These are the services we provide:
- Skilled Nursing
The Skilled Nurse is an RN or LPN with training and experience in providing care in the home. The nurse communicates frequently with your physician to update your plan of care. Services may include evaluation of patient needs; performance of skilled nursing procedures; education of patient, family members and caregivers on disease processes; self-care techniques and prevention strategies; and coordination of patient care and services with your physician and other health care team members.
- Home Health Aide
Home Health Aide services are delivered under the supervision of a registered nurse. Our aides have experience and training in providing care in the home. An Aide is assigned when there is a specific need for personal care on a part-time basis at home. Any duties the home health aide performs will be planned by you and the nurse and added to your plan of care. Typical duties include bathing, shampooing hair, changing bed linen, and assistance with other activities of daily living.
- Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy
Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services are provided by a licensed therapist or a licensed therapy assistant under the direction of a therapist. Your therapist will provide specific information about the services and treatments you will receive.
