Celebrating 24-year Anniversary In Business November 2024

Staying comfortable and healthy in your own home is a priority for many, especially as we age, live with a disability, or recover from illness. But sometimes, medical needs arise that require more than just basic assistance. Do you want expert medical care in the comfort of your home? Learn how skilled medical services can improve your health, boost your independence, and keep you well at home.

 

What are Skilled Medical Services?

Licensed healthcare professionals provide skilled medical services in the comfort of your own home. These services go beyond everyday help with tasks like bathing and dressing. However, this specialized care often requires advanced training and medical knowledge from registered nurses (RNs) or licensed practical nurses (LPNs).

Examples of Skilled Medical Services:

  • Wound care: Skilled nurses can manage complex wounds, including those requiring debridement (cleaning), dressing changes, and monitoring for infection.
  • Pain management: Nurses can administer pain medication and develop pain management plans to ensure your comfort.
  • Physical therapy: Therapists can help you regain strength, improve mobility, and manage chronic pain through exercises and therapeutic techniques.
  • Occupational therapy: Therapists can help you relearn daily living skills, adapt to limitations, and maintain independence in your home environment.
  • Speech-language therapy: Therapists can help you regain speech or language skills affected by stroke, brain injury, or other conditions.
  • Home IV therapy: Nurses can administer intravenous (IV) medications and fluids at home, eliminating the need for frequent hospital visits.
  • Nutritional counseling: Registered dietitians can assess your dietary needs and develop a personalized plan to ensure you get the necessary nutrients.
  • Medication Management: Skilled nurses ensure you take the right meds at the right time and in the right way. They also manage prescriptions, monitor interactions, and communicate with your doctor for optimal care. 

 

How Can Skilled Medical Services Help You?

Skilled medical services offer a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Improved health outcomes: By receiving the proper care at home, you can recover faster from illness or surgery, manage chronic conditions more effectively, and prevent complications.
  • Enhanced independence: Skilled services can help you maintain your independence and stay in your home for as long as possible.
  • Reduced hospital stays: With proper home care, you may be able to avoid or shorten hospital stays, saving on costs and improving your overall comfort.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that you have qualified professionals providing your care can give you and your loved ones peace of mind.

 

Who is Eligible for Skilled Medical Services?

Skilled medical services are typically ordered by your doctor and covered by Medicare or private insurance. However, you meet specific criteria. Your doctor will work with you to determine if these services are right for you based on your individual needs and medical condition.

 

Finding a Qualified Home Care Provider

When choosing a home care provider, look for one licensed and accredited, with a team of experienced and qualified healthcare professionals. Ask about their specific services, experience with your medical condition, and insurance coverage.
