ComForCare Home Care specializes in private-duty nursing services, which allows us to support complex medical needs. We tailor our care to meet the client's requirements, assisting them in managing their own disease process when appropriate.
Transitions of Care Program
The transition from a hospital or rehabilitation center back to the home can be difficult for clients to manage successfully. Our licensed nurses can help improve patient outcomes and reduce re-hospitalizations by promoting adherence to discharge instructions in the home setting by: Reviewing discharge instructions with the client
- Educating the client in self-care using “teach back” techniques
- Ensuring prescriptions are filled and the medication box is set up correctly
- Confirming appropriate durable medical equipment (DME) is delivered
- Conducting home safety and fall risk inspections
- Coordinating follow-up care with other providers
Chronic Disease Management
Most seniors have one or more chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure, COPD or diabetes. ComForCare helps clients successfully manage these conditions to improve well-being and avoid adverse health events by:
- Creating a plan of care
- Educating about lifestyle changes
- Educating about "red flag" symptoms
- Promoting medication adherence
Registered nurses (RNs) perform medication set-up and reconciliation. They also educate clients on managing medication side effects that may occur, how to evaluate effectiveness and when to consult with a physician.
