What are home care services?

Home care services provide at-home treatment for individuals who are elderly or experiencing mobility issues. If you provide care for a child or an older family member and they have an underlying health problem that requires routine checkups, home care services can save you time, money, and energy. 

With home care services, Jessica or a team member regularly visits your home to monitor your or a family member’s condition or treatment plan. If necessary, they can take blood work, administer medication, order cultures, or refer treatment to a nearby specialist. 

Who can benefit from home care services?

At Rise and Thrive Healthcare, Jessica and the team provide home care services to people with a wide range of medical conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes

You might also benefit from home care services if you have limited mobility due to a previous accident or injury.

What are some examples of home care services?

Jessica and the team offer various home care services. They might include one or more of the following:

Medication management

Many chronic health problems, like heart disease and arthritis, require prescription medication to ease uncomfortable symptoms and reduce the risk of other, more serious issues. If you run out of medication or require regular injections, Jessica or a team member can visit your home, ensuring you have the medicine you need.

Wound care

If you have diabetes or peripheral artery disease (PAD), you’re more likely to experience diabetic ulcers and other slow-healing wounds.

Wound care uses treatments like debridement and alginate dressings to reduce the risk of infection, prevent gangrene, and encourage your body’s natural healing process.

High blood pressure monitoring

Many people with diabetes and kidney disease experience high blood pressure, and it is also common in older adults. Unfortunately, without intervention and treatment, hypertension increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Regular at-home monitoring can alert you to changes and help you take action before you experience a cardiovascular event.

Pain management

Many chronic illnesses, including arthritis and osteoporosis, cause joint inflammation, pain, stiffness, or general discomfort. If you regularly experience pain and it affects your ability to work, exercise, or do other activities, at-home pain management can provide lasting relief.

Sick visits

If you have limited mobility or a compromised immune system, trips to the doctor’s office can be challenging or potentially risky. With home care services, your provider comes to you. They can determine if you have a fever, take cultures, and make treatment recommendations.
