As a Home Care Elite Agency, we have earned the trust of thousands of families who needed help after a hospital stay or during an extended illness.
Home health care allows the elderly and medically dependent individuals live in their own home with the assistance of a private care professional. Depending on their medical condition, home health care can help seniors to live independent fuller lives and avoid the need for a nursing home. In-home care can involve a variety of services from different types of health care professionals.
Your home health care services will start with your doctor. They will write a prescription for the types of home health services you need. The prescription will also state how often professionals will visit your home. Once you have your prescription you or your physician can contact Assisted and we will take care of the rest. To make sure there are no surprises we will verify your insurance benefits prior to the beginning of your in-home care.
Services for in-home health care may include:
Registered nurses make certain the care plan set forth by the patient’s doctor is being carried out exactly as needed. These services may include administering proper medications and dosage, wound care, IV therapy, nutrition, education on disease process, identifying changes in medical status, and other medically necessary procedures. All registered nurses with Assisted have been tested and certified to meet our rigorous qualifications to ensure the highest medical standards are met.
A home health aide helps seniors or dependent patients with the daily tasks that they may not be able to perform on their own. These services may include assistance with bathing, dressing, light housekeeping, laundry, and other daily tasks. Under certain circumstances home health aides may be able to assist with medication or check vital signs under the direct supervision of a registered nurse or other certified health care professional. At Assisted our home health aides must pass our stringent tests as well as have a qualified experience to be sure our patients receive the best care possible.
Physical Therapists from Assisted typically have a doctoral degree and are licensed care professionals. This ensures that the care our patients receive for in-home physical therapy is always at the top of medical standards. Physical therapists help patients regain as much motor function as possible after an injury, surgery, or even illness. The process usually starts with an assessment to determine the current medical state of the patient and possible restoration of motor function. The techniques used may include stretching, massage, and mechanics that are suitable for recovery.
Occupational Therapists are licensed care professional that help people regain or relearn fine motor skills. These skills usually involve daily living activities such as getting dressed, writing, cooking, and eating. Occupational Therapy typically helps the elderly who have had a stroke to regain as much functionality as possible. Other disabilities and traumatic brain injuries can benefit greatly from Occupational Therapy. Assisted ensures that all our Occupational Therapists are a highly qualified professional that meet the standards of care that are expected.

These types of disorders may include fluency disorders, voice disorders, and language disorders. Other disorders may include issues swallowing and eating.
