Home Health Care Services

Nursing and Home Care Aide Services
Community VNA’s homecare registered nurses (RNs) perform patient assessment and observation, administering skilled care and treatments, as ordered by the physician, offer patient and family caregiver education, administer and explain medications, perform advanced wound care and much more.

Our certified home health care aides provide personal care which includes help with bathing, dressing, moving from bed to chair, safely walking and climbing stairs; light housekeeping and meal preparation, as needed.

IV Therapy
Innovations in technology and advances in home healthcare treatments now make it possible for patients with advanced illness to safely recuperate at home. Our experienced nursing staff can utilize intravenous therapy for hydration, nutrition, antibiotics and pain management.
Medication Management
Assisting patients with their medications, including determining the proper dosages and observing any side effects, is part of the role of our registered nurses. By using telehealth monitoring , patient information is collected and analyzed daily (or more often when needed) and shared with the patient’s physician to scrutinize changes and examine medication and treatment effectiveness.
Pain and Symptom Management
Our nurses are specially trained in the assessment of pain, drug and non-drug therapies, proper dosages and administration techniques. Through continuing education, our nurses remain on the cutting edge of new developments in pain management.
Social Services
Non-medical needs such as planning for the future or addressing any emotional difficulties that are affecting the patient and his or her loved ones are part of the concerns focused on by the Hospice and Palliative Care social worker. Our licensed social workers provide support and counseling to the patient and family as they attempt to deal with health changes and the future. Support may include helping to identify available community resources and providing advice concerning financial questions that occur with a prolonged illness and death. In addition, the social worker acts as a patient and family advocate in a variety of other ways, such as with assistance in planning funeral arrangements.
Case Management
Your primary nurse works with your physician, other health care specialists and your family caregivers to establish an individualized care plan that best meets your needs.

Rehabilitation Therapies

Community VNA’s home health care team includes rehabilitation therapists who help patients safely regain their ability to move and perform their daily activities through physical, occupational, and speech therapies.

Physical Therapy (PT)Occupational Therapy (OT)Speech and Language Therapy

Our physical therapists help you to improve your strength and balance, increasing your ability to move safely and to walk. Our PTs also help patients learn to safely use walkers, canes, wheelchairs or prostheses. We provide home safety evaluations and teach fall-prevention methods. We specialize in working with orthopedic patients and their caregivers.

Occupational therapists help patients regain strength and dexterity for the activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming and other actions involved in self-care. Occupational therapists help those who are recuperating to build endurance, balance and stamina so they can move more easily and safely.

Speech and language therapists (speech pathologists) help patients improve their swallowing abilities, regain their verbal skills or adopt new communication techniques.
