Reclaiming Sense of Independence
At Expicare Nursing, we provide skilled nursing services to help aging adults recover from surgery, illness, or injury, heal at home and reclaim their independence. In-home care nurses visit a senior’s home to provide medical care and assess their needs. Nurses may ask questions and gather information about medications, symptoms, diagnosis, hospital discharge instructions, and more. This information helps the nurse create a unique plan of nursing care in the comfort of the home’s familiar surroundings.
What In-Home Care Nurses Do
In-home skilled nursing can provide some or a combination of these services:
- Feeding and Meal Preparation
- Medication reminders
- Escort and Transport to Dr. appointments and events
- Shopping and Errands
- Light Housekeeping
- Companionship including reading, card playing and board games, etc.
- Respite Care for Family Members
- Fall Precautions Assistance
- Foot Massage for relaxation and to enhance circulation
Nursing professionals can partner with a senior adult’s doctor, develop a medication schedule, evaluate the effectiveness of medications, note any adverse reactions or side effects, and educate the patient and any caregivers on their proper dosage, frequency, and side effects.
Home care nurses can help aging adults with post-surgical, injury-based, pressure ulcers, or other wounds with in-home care and education to ensure proper healing.
Elderly patients with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) frequently need skilled medical support to help them maintain an independent and healthy lifestyle. In-home nurses can provide disease care, in-home monitoring, patient education, and rehabilitation.
In-Home IV Therapy
Home care nurses can teach patients and their caregivers about how to manage IV medications and nutritional support (tube feeding) at home.
Nurses care for and educate their patients to maintain ostomy care. With a little education and practice, elderly patients can live comfortably with an ostomy pouch.
Incontinence can be embarrassing and uncomfortable for many aging adults. In-home nursing professionals can offer comprehensive in-home continence care, including toileting programs, urinary catheter maintenance, and home accessibility evaluations.
Patients recovering from injuries such as stroke, burns, or amputation or surgeries like joint replacement often need rehabilitative nursing care to manage at home. In-home nurses can assess an elderly patient’s abilities and follow their recovery process.
What Regular Visits Can Entail
The average pre-scheduled visit lasts less than an hour. A senior can expect to experience things like:
- Blood pressure, temperature, breathing, and heart rate checks
- IV and wound care
- Ensuring the senior understands the purpose of their medications. They may be given information about taking medicines on schedule and what side effects they can have
- Teaching the aging adult or their caregiver to manage an IV or wound
- Helping a senior learn how to control the symptoms of their ailments
- Recommendations on exercise and nutrition to build strength, improve mobility and balance, and manage health conditions
