Our Care Teams

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 household chores that are simply too much for your loved one to physically manage.

The Right Care Starts with the Right Experts

How do you know whether you need a skilled nurse or a certified home health aide? Why would you need an aide with rehab coaching skills instead of a rehab therapist?

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.

Depending on the services you receive, your care team may include:

Private Care 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 Therapists

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.

Certified Home Health Aide

Home health aides provide companion care and personal care services, ensuring your loved one has the individualized attention they deserve so they can feel safe and comfortable.

Care Manager

Our professional care managers are experienced registered nurses, qualified to provide cohesive, customized care and support to ensure the best quality of life for the client and their family, who may live close by or far away. Care managers supervise and coordinate all aspects of care, from liaising with medical professionals to negotiating with contractors for home safety modifications; can help manage personal finances or legal matters; guide families to resolve conflicts when disagreements about care arise; and coordinate care for assistance with day-to-day activities like bathing, dressing, and meal preparation.
