There comes a time in many people's lives when they need additional help at home. Medical events and the general aging process can leave you feeling as though you need extra assistance. At Healing Hearts Home Health, we offer home health care to patients throughout Wyoming. If you're exploring the possibility of using home care for yourself or a relative, you may be wondering where to start. We're here to try and clarify a few points for you.
Discuss your options
Home health care means something different to everyone. While some people require a little assistance with remembering to take their medications, others want round-the-clock care or skilled nursing.
Our approach to care in the home is fully comprehensive. We offer a range of services, including medical, nursing, companionship, and bathing. We also have a team of occupational therapists who can assist you. We recommend discussing your needs with a healthcare professional. When they have a better idea of what you might require, they'll refer you on to us.
Choose your services
Choosing the type of services you want from a home care team can feel like a big step. Because of this, it's important to work with a physician who understands your requirements. When they have a sound understanding of your medical background and the type of help you need right now, they can help you choose services that are most relevant to your health.
Generally, our services fit into a few neat categories. They include:
Health and medical care
Our staff includes a range of allied health professionals. Nurses, occupational therapists, and speech therapists are also available. We also have medical social workers and individuals who can offer medical education.
Holistic care can include the use of companions who spend time with you while you're at home. Having a companion reduces the amount of time you spend in isolation, which in turn benefits your mental wellbeing. With holistic support, you can improve both your mental and physical health.
When you're struggling with tasks such as shopping, housekeeping, cleaning, and cooking, it helps to have someone to do them for you. Each member of our team is incredibly friendly. As a result, they'll always put you at ease.
The benefits of our services
Before creating a home health care plan, you may want to learn more about the benefits of choosing us. If you're currently managing a chronic health condition that requires medical monitoring, we can do the monitoring for you. With consistent monitoring, you can make sure your treatments are having the right effect.
If you're recovering from a recent surgery, your physician may be able to request that a member of our team helps you. Using our care services can make the recovery period less daunting and more relaxing.
If you need ongoing IV therapy or injections, our nurses have the qualifications required to place drips and inject using appropriate techniques. Additionally, we can help with medication administration and disease education.
Find your funding
After putting your plans into place, you need to decide your funding options. Many of our patients are covered by Medicare. We're adept at managing the Medicare funding process, and we'll take care of everything for you. In the rare instance that you need private funding, we can help you there too. Our aim is to make accessing care easier and less stressful.
We always recommend exploring your funding options well in advance of arranging your care services. You may be eligible for assistance, and it's only through planning that you'll find out.
