Private Home Health Care in Sarasota FL covers a broad range of services, including everything from companionship to skilled nursing for critical care patients. The critical care team helps patients make the transition to their homes from the hospital. The intention is to avoid having the patient spend time in a convalescent facility. In addition, geriatric care workers are available to help clients who are disabled to a certain extent but can still live at home with some assistance.
Nursing Service for Recuperation at Home
Research shows that people recovering from a serious illness, an injury, or an extensive operation tend to feel better when they can recuperate at home. Private Home Health Care in Sarasota FL offers them the chance to do this. With high-quality care from a skilled provider, patients feel safe and comfortable in their familiar surroundings. The attention is particularly important when no family members or close friends can be there. Although immediate family members may be able to take a leave of absence from work for a time, they eventually must go back.
Home Care Companions and Nursing Assistants
In contrast, many men and women simply need some help with keeping their homes tidy and perhaps with some nonintrusive personal grooming. They also appreciate the companionship of these workers, who may be personal care companions or certified nursing assistants.
These workers may do laundry, sweep floors, make lunch or dinner for the client, and take care of grocery shopping for the household. If the client is physically able, he or she might like to be taken along on a shopping trip or to run other errands.
The workers from an agency like Family First Homecare might trim the client’s nails, brush his or her hair, and massage hand lotion into the patient’s hands and arms. The two might watch TV together or read the newspaper and have a conversation about the day’s events.
A Wide Variety of Tasks
A very wide variety of tasks can be accomplished by the caregivers, who are thoroughly vetted by the agency before being hired. Contact us to learn about the different service levels offered.
