About HomeCare Options

Certified home health aides

certified home health aides perform those household and health-related services that are essential to the patient's well-being and necessary to prevent or postpone institutionalization. Before assigning an aide, we conduct a professional evaluation and assessment of each patient. This results in the development of a care plan, prepared in cooperation with the patient and family. We assign a r. N. Field supervisor to oversee each case. Our goal is to find the best possible match between aide and patient, with aides carefully selected depending on the needs, health and preferences of the patient. Our aides - who have been with us for an average of eight years, unheard of in the home care industry - treat their patients as if they were part of their own family. Patients need not worry about aide turnover - a different person will not be coming into their home every week. In many cases, patients and aides have been together for years. This furthers complete comfort and trust. All homecare options' aides complete the nj state board of nursing approved training course and pass both written and practical tests for competence. Aides always practice universal precautions and infection control techniques. Certified home health aides services may include:

bathing. Grooming. Dressing. Toileting. Simple wound dressing care. Medication management assistance. Mobility assistance including transfers. Prescribed range of motion exercises. Meal preparation. Feeding. Shopping. Laundry. Light housekeeping. Companionship (walks, clubs, parks, museums...). Doctors appointments

nursing visits

registered nurses (rns) and licensed practical nurses (lpns) are available to care for patients who are ill, disabled, recently hospitalized, or have been injured in accidents. The r. N. Plans, develops, implements and evaluates the comprehensive care required by the home care patient. Length of service may vary from a short daily visit to monitor health signs and administer medication to continual care. Emergency response system

this is an electronic device with an easy-to-use 'help' button which can be pressed to summon help in an emergency, such as a fall or heart attack. It eliminates the need to reach a telephone or remember emergency telephone numbers. Called the lifeline system, it is especially suited to persons with physical disabilities, heart problems, or history of strokes, falls, or diabetes.
