Louisiana Home Care of Slidell brings healing home

By Suzanne Cooper, Director of Nurses, Northshore LIVING WELL Magazine

Everyone knows there’s no place like home.

That’s especially true when recovering from illness or injury. Louisiana HomeCare Slidell provides high-quality home health services to local patients in the comfort of home.

The therapeutic value of being in comfortable surroundings, with quality medical care and family and friends nearby, can have a positive effect on the healing process. And the development of new medical treatments and technologies has made home health care an important and cost-effective option for many people.

As a member of the nationally recognized LHC Group, headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana, HomeCare Slidell is equipped to provide high-quality, professional medical care in the comfort of home for a wide range of conditions. Under the direct supervision of his or her physician, each Louisiana HomeCare Slidell patient receives attentive and compassionate care from highly skilled home care professionals. And family members or other caregivers receive information, guidance and support to help make their loved one’s recovery as comfortable and effective as possible.

In addition, qualified home care patients at Louisiana HomeCare Slidell have access to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with the convenient Philips Lifeline medical alert service. This one-touch button device, worn as a pendant or wristband, connects home care patients to a certified Philips Lifeline professional for immediate assistance.

Generally, Medicare and/or Medicaid will cover the cost of home care services for those patients over the age of 65 who meet either program’s eligibility requirements. Private insurance companies, managed-care organizations and worker’s compensation plans may also pay for home health services.
