Life-changing illness impacts every member of the household. Deciding it’s time to bring help into your home can be a difficult decision. We can provide you with experts who have the skills and the sensitivity to see to your needs. Our home care professionals include skilled nurses and certified home health aides with specialized training to handle the symptoms of specific conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Your home care team will step in to help make life manageable—from overseeing dietary modifications to addressing complicated side effects and symptoms to assisting with light housekeeping chores that are simply too much for your loved one to physically manage.
Partners in Care will help you figure out exactly what you or your loved one need. When you contact us, we’ll ask a few questions about who needs care and why. We’ll use this information to create your client profile, which details all the appropriate services and matches you to the right home care professionals for your situation. If necessary, we may send a nurse to meet with you in your home to assess safety and medical issues.
Most people come to Partners in Care looking for home health aide services. Home health aides provide personal care, ensuring your loved one has the attention they deserve so they can feel safe and comfortable. Home health aides always work under the supervision of a nurse.
A private-duty nurse provides personalized, attentive medical care for you or your loved one in a location that’s convenient. This is most often a home, but it may be in a sub-acute rehab facility, hospital, or nursing home.
Rehabilitation is an important part of recovering or maintaining strength, range of motion—and the ability to stay at home safely. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists visit your home to assess safety and work with you to regain functionality.
