Meet your Clinical Care Team
Residential's clinical staff members are on-call 24/7. In addition to providing full-service in-home nursing and therapy care, nurses and therapists teach families how to assist in their loved one's treatment plan. The Residential Home Health care team includes the following medical professionals:
- A primary nurse manager is assigned to each patient. This person is the main care coordinator who works with the patient’s physician to plan nursing, therapy, pharmacy and other services.
- Registered nurses have experience in drug therapy management, ostomy care, post-surgical and wound care, respiratory care management and diabetes care.
- Rehabilitation therapists lead patients through their physician-prescribed therapy and follow up with the patient's physician to adjust treatment as necessary. Our therapists specialize in the following:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Medical social workers help patients and families deal with the stress sometimes associated with recovery. They also help families locate community resources and assist with applications for various benefit programs.
- Home health aides help with the patient’s personal hygiene. They can also assist with exercise programs and can remind patients when to take prescribed medications.
Home health nurses provide direct care and educate patients and caregivers. Your physician provides our nurses with an individualized plan of care for you or your loved one. Our nurses manage, observe, and evaluate the care while regularly communicating with your physician. Examples of skilled nursing care include: giving IV drugs, shots, or tube feedings, changing dressings, and teaching about prescription drugs or diabetes care.
