If you are recovering from an injury or surgical procedure or have developed a chronic condition, you may be concerned that your only options are to live in an inpatient facility or depend on family members to care for you. However, the home health care services offered by Independence Plus can help you retain your comfort and dignity while enjoying the privacy of your own home.
Home Health Aides
Receiving help with personal grooming and toileting from a family member can be embarrassing and may affect your relationship with him or her, which is why Independence Plus provides home health aides. These professionals can also assist you with daily living tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and managing appointments.
If you have specific medical needs, a skilled clinician can visit your home to assist you so that you do not have to rely on family caregivers. Our skilled nursing services include tracheostomy tube changes, wound cleaning, catheter care, peritoneal dialysis, and the administration of medication.
Respiratory Home Medical Equipment
Ventilator-dependent patients often appreciate the opportunity to use a portable ventilator that allows them to move about and perform certain daily activities. Independence Plus’ licensed respiratory care practitioners provide pre-discharge evaluations, set up home medical equipment, and offer on-call support as well as monthly visits to restock supplies.
Regular physical and occupational therapy sessions can be instrumental in helping a patient regain his or her independence in walking, carrying objects, and performing personal care tasks. The therapists affiliated with Independence Plus will visit you in your home, which means that you do not need to rely on another person to take you to your appointments.
