When a patient has acute medical needs that do not require indefinite hospitalization, he or she may feel more comfortable being cared for at home by a clinician. Use the following guide to determine whether Independence Plus’ home care services can help in your situation:
Discharged with Chronic Health Needs
If your loved one is stable enough to leave the hospital, yet still requires nursing care, Independence Plus’ private duty nurses can help ensure that he or she receives the necessary medical attention. Whether the patient has neurological damage, a severe injury, or a degenerative condition, our nursing team can minimize you and your family’s stress by providing quality care up to 24 hours a day.
Mechanical Ventilation Is Required
Thanks to portable home ventilators, patients with acute respiratory needs can enjoy increased mobility and freedom. Family caregivers who are uncertain how to operate a ventilator can benefit from calling Independence Plus—we have licensed respiratory therapist available to review your loved one’s needs, assemble the required medical equipment within your home, and educate you and your family on its proper use.
Physical Therapy Is Necessary Due to Limited Mobility
Patients with severe mobility issues usually prefer to receive rehabilitation in the comfort of their own home. This arrangement can be mutually beneficial because it enables the physical therapist to evaluate and address accessibility challenges within the home, as well as use household objects and furniture to design appropriate exercises.
For skilled private duty nursing, home health visits, and respiratory home medical equipment, home ventilator care, and convenient physical and occupational therapy, contact Independence Plus at (708) 366-4500. We have been helping patients receive quality home care for 25 years.
