In-Home Health Care Services
Skilled Nursing Care
Registered nurses administer medications, change wound dressings, and monitor vital signs for those with at-home care. Your Sphinx Home Health Care nurse will also act as a case manager who coordinates all aspects of the patient’s medical care. Make sure you get the home care nursing that you need to live a full, comfortable life.
Physical therapy helps improve balance, coordination, and strength. Our occupational therapists can also evaluate your home to ensure that it is safe enough for you or your loved one.
Occupational therapy focuses on fine motor skills (such as buttoning a shirt) that can affect a patient’s independence.
Speech therapy assists patients with restoring their ability to communicate verbally, as well as learning to swallow easily and safely.
Assistance With Everyday Activities
Certified home health aides provide companionship and help with everyday tasks, such as cooking, bathing, light housekeeping, and running errands. These home helpers make living at home easier and more comfortable.
Help Managing the Psychological Impacts of Illness
Medical social workers assess patients and caregivers for signs of emotional problems or difficulties that may negatively impact treatment and recovery and, if necessary, provide counseling or access to helpful community resources.
Registered dietitians may be a part of your team if your doctor recommends making changes to the kinds of foods you eat or if you are undergoing treatment that affects appetite.
Sphinx Home Health Care professionals come to your house, but our in-home care doesn’t stop when they leave for the day. Our customer care center is staffed with customer service representatives and registered nurses who help patients and their families with concerns that cannot wait until the next morning.
According to Janett Mitchell, RN and Sphinx Home Health Care After Hours Supervisor, “We want Sphinx patients to know that a registered nurse is just a phone call away if you have any immediate concerns.”
Who Qualifies for Home Care?
Home Care isn’t only for the elderly. Anyone can qualify for at-home care if they meet the following requirements:
- You must be under the care of a physician
- Services must be medically necessary and on an intermittent basis
- You must be “homebound.” Medicare defines being homebound as anyone having trouble leaving the house without the aid of a cane, crutches, walker, wheelchair, or help from another person
- Leaving home isn’t recommended because of your condition
