Choosing Home Health
Courtesy Grayson Home Health, Texoma LIVING WELL Magazine
When home health services are prescribed by your physician, or when you believe you could benefit from either short or long-term care in your home, you have an important decision to make. Home health agencies differ in many areas that may be important to you, such as range of services and the credentials and experience of those who provide them.
Because, for many people, the convenience and cost savings associated with receiving care in the home is a determining factor, you’ll want to be sure you benefit from the latest portable technology, treatments and therapies provided by skilled nurses and therapists, assistance with medication management, quick lab test results, and the added layer of expertise an advanced nurse practitioner delivers.
Grayson Home Health provides the services of a licensed advanced nurse practitioner, a registered nurse with a master’s degree and additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of common medical conditions. She treats illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions, and can also prescribe medications, therapies and other services. With a focus on prevention, wellness and patient education, advanced nurse practitioners help patients and families make informed decisions about healthcare and options to help maintain independence in the home environment. She can conduct home assessments to help prevent falls and maximize living areas for greater safety and utilization.
Additionally, Grayson Home Health’s experienced team includes a certified geriatric care manager who can connect families with available community services. Many people appreciate the services of home health for a brief time following surgery, hospitalization or injury. Eager to return home and recover where they are most comfortable, patients choose Grayson Home Health for physical, occupational and speech therapies.
While the capacity of a home health agency to deliver services is important, the manner in which services are delivered is equally significant. Grayson Home Health is an award-winning company that receives accolades from patients, families and physicians for their excellence in patient care. They’ve been awarded best home health in Texoma for five consecutive years. It’s a deciding factor for many who know what they want from home health and know who can deliver it.
