How can I get nursing and personal care at home?

If you’re wondering “how can I get nursing and personal care at home?” you’re not alone.
Today, Boomers, Gen Xers and even millennials, are finding themselves caring for a parent or
grandparent. In fact, nearly 18 million individuals in the U.S. are family caregivers of someone
65+, due to physical, mental, or cognitive functioning. But thankfully, you don’t need to do it
alone. Hope Home Care offers best-in-class nursing and personal care services, right in the
patient’s home. Here’s how it works:

Understanding the Need

If you – or a team of family members and friends – are caring for someone ‘round the clock, it’s
a lot of work. Feeding and meal prep. Medication management. Doctor appointments. Visiting
nurses can relieve some of these tasks, allowing you time for your kids, your job, or self-care.
You don’t have to do it alone.

Choosing a Reputable Visiting Nurses Agency

You probably feel like “nobody else will care for them as well as I will.” The first step is to
research and choose a reputable visiting nurses’ agency – one with a proven track record,
positive reviews, and experienced healthcare professionals. Seek recommendations from
friends, family, or your primary care physician to ensure you are making an informed decision.

Patient Assessment of Needs

Once you’ve selected a visiting nurse’s agency, they will conduct a thorough assessment of the
patient’s healthcare needs. They can work with the patient’s team of doctors and nurses to get
a better understanding of the patient’s medical condition and the level of assistance required.
This assessment forms the basis for creating a customized care plan tailored to your loved one’s
unique healthcare needs.

Personalized Care Plans

One of the key advantages of home-based care is the creation of personalized care plans.
Visiting nurses work closely with patients and their families to develop a plan that addresses
medical needs, medication management, and personal care requirements. Visiting nurses’
agencies often coordinate a range of services to meet the diverse needs of their clients. This
may include skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and personal care
assistance. This ensures a holistic approach to healthcare that goes beyond traditional clinical
settings.

Insurance Coverage and Payment Options

Before initiating home-based care services, it’s essential to understand your insurance coverage
and explore payment options. Many visiting nurse agencies help with Medicaid planning and
insurance providers and will help you navigate the financial aspects of at-home care. This
transparency ensures that you can access the services you need without unnecessary financial
burden.

Accessing nursing and personal care at home through visiting nurse agencies offers a
compassionate and patient-centered approach to healthcare. Ready to learn more? Email
