Prevention is, and has always been, a watch-word of healthcare. Healthcare costs continue to rise at unsustainable rates and we expect longer lives, resulting in research, initiatives and even incentives to prevent illnesses, diseases and hospitalizations. When it comes to home care, there are some key accessible, and affordable, ways you can prevent possible health problems or address them more proactively.
Weekly Nurse Visits. When your aging loved one is eligible for home health services (after a decline in condition or planned hospitalization after which they are homebound) nurse visits are usually included in their treatment planned devised by their doctor and our Medicare team. These services are funded by Medicare or Medicare Advantage Plans, but they are also available through self-pay. Many clients choose to pay for one weekly nurse visit which offers improved oversight and peace of mind, as well as prevention. Read more about the benefits of a weekly nurse visit here.
