How is skilled home health care different from home personal care?
You may hear the terms home health care or skilled home health care interchangeably with personal or companion care. It’s important to understand the difference. While home personal care services may assist with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and meal preparation, home health care is more medically focused.
Skilled home health care includes nursing care, physical or occupational therapy, or home medical social work. With experienced home health care professionals from Ascension at Home, you can receive the specialized support you need to manage your medical condition, recover from an injury or surgery, or cope with a severe illness. To better understand skilled home health care, we offer resources such as:
What is home infusion?
Home infusion can benefit many patients, especially those who are homebound or have difficulty leaving home. This service involves receiving intravenous infusions in your home, often with the support and guidance of a home care nurse. Ascension at Home offers comprehensive home infusion services tailored to each patient’s needs and goals.
Our experienced home care nurses work closely with you, your caregivers, and your prescribing doctor to help ensure you safely receive the highest quality care in a comfortable home environment. Whether you need antibiotic therapy for an infection, pain management following surgery, or intravenous nutrition support due to malnutrition or other medical conditions, home infusion can help get you back on the path to health.
If home infusion sounds like the right choice for you, contact Ascension at Home today at [direct] to learn more about how our care services can help.
Why should you choose In-Home Infusion?
In-home infusion is a specialized form of home care that involves delivering medical treatments such as intravenous (IV) infusions, injections, and other therapies directly to patients in their homes. This type of treatment is ideal for individuals who cannot travel to a hospital or clinic due to illness or mobility issues and those who wish to receive treatment in the privacy and comfort of their homes.
We care for patients where they feel most comfortable—in the place they call home. Care at home may cost less for some patients, and some patients say they experience less stress at home.
Opening your home to a caregiver requires trust. Nurses visiting your home complete a thorough onboarding process to help ensure professional care is delivered.
