Skilled Nursing Care
Trust Your Loved One to the Caregivers We Can Refer
It can be difficult to know how to manage the in-home nursing care for a loved one when they have experienced surgery, a difficult fall, a chronic illness, or may be suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s. At Collier Home Care, leave it to us to find and refer to you a skilled nurse who best matches your preferences to take care of your loved one in the comfort of their home.
As a nurse registry, our clients rely on us to discover the perfect matches based on their loved ones’ preferences. We pride ourselves on facilitating the creation of relationships between your loved one and a home nursing care champion. We can refer champion Home Health Aides (HHAs) and Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs) to highly skilled Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs).
We can refer skilled nursing professionals who can provide oversight and management of all aspects of care so the patient’s health needs are met.
Medication Set up, Administration, & Management
We can refer skilled nursing professionals who can assist with medication management, including setting up and administering medications as prescribed.
We can refer skilled nursing professionals who can provide specialized wound care services, including assessment, treatment, and monitoring of wounds to promote healing and prevent infection.
Blood Sugar Testing
We can refer skilled nursing professionals who can provide regular blood sugar testing and monitoring for patients with diabetes, to help manage their blood sugar levels and prevent complications.
Medical Support and Flawless Companionship
In the case of an event such as a surgery or fall, or in the case of a progressive cognitive illness such as dementia or Alzheimer’s, we could refer to your loved one a skilled nursing caregiver, either an RN or an LPN to enable that to receive the maximum available care in terms of their health, whether these are physical or mental health concerns, or even both. There also may be a need for you to request a referral of others in our network, such as CNAs or HHAs, depending on each patient’s circumstances. We strive to ensure that our network of RNs and LPNs is made up of caring, compassionate nurses whose concern for patient care is matched equally between their companionship skills and their medical expertise.
We are fortunate to have on our registry nurses who care deeply for their patients and work tirelessly to ensure they are supported in every way possible. RNs and LPNs are capable of making medical determinations on their own; however, under state law they do work directly under the direction of your loved one’s physician to ensure seamless care and communication. In other words, they work independently, but they do have physician support. Their skilled nursing care comes with a considerable degree of independence and initiative, and state law does not require RNs or LPNs to be physically supervised by the physician.
The Unique Benefits of Nurses
The benefit of an RN or LPN in this atmosphere is largely to see to the patient’s medical care as part of their in home nursing care. They have a unique skill set that allows them to be two parts nurse, one part companion. We enjoy referring to clients all of the nurses throughout our network and matching them to your loved ones. Furthermore, should you also need to request referrals of experienced CNAs and HHAs, a referred nurse can work with these skilled professionals to increase the level of patient care.
After a surgery (which is always a major trauma to the body) or a serious fall, it’s essential that healing begin as promptly as possible, and continue as the patient tolerates it. The independent nurses on our registry have specialized experience in providing home care for senior patients, and in rehabilitating the patient while also providing camaraderie, kindness, and companionship. The skilled nurses we refer can provide nursing services that include injections, wound care, medication administration and management, and much more. The importance of being at home cannot be understated: simply being in familiar place, with familiar sounds and smells, and the ability to move about freely (as tolerated) all lead to patients healing faster. One study has found that the cost of being treated at home versus being treated in a hospital following surgery or a significant fall is lower by up to 40%, and patient readmission rates drop to nearly 70%, if they receive post-op care at home instead of in the hospital.
The Importance of In-Home Nursing Care
Skilled nursing care is an essential factor in providing the specificity of care required by patients suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia. One article suggests that “the demand for Alzheimer’s and dementia nursing care continues to grow. Nurses with gerontological specialties and training in these conditions play a crucial role in helping these patients maintain their quality of life and remain independent as long as possible.” Ensuring that your loved one’s quality of life is maintained while managing the particular symptoms, medications, and lifestyle accommodations required for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients is the main goal for the RNs and LPNs we at Collier Home Care can refer to you. We are committed to referring to clients independent caregivers who can enable a client’s loved ones to live safely, securely, and independently in their homes. While cognitive illnesses can be very difficult to witness, the home nursing care professionals on our registry, from RNs and LPNs to CNAs and HHAs, can help your loved one enjoy a life of utmost dignity and highest quality.
