Supporting our HealthCare Partners by Supporting Their Patients
Home Instead of Jacksonville, Jerseyville and Litchfield, IL is available 24/7 to assist you in caring for your patients!
Providing Support to Home Health Agencies
We value the partnerships we have with our home health agencies and know that now, more than ever, it's important that we provide that critical care that seniors need to keep them safe in their homes.
We understand your mission is to provide vital medical care to your patients, but that your time is limited. Let Home Instead work along side of you to provide the personalized care that supports your patient while providing respite for the primary caregiver and gives peace of mind to the entire family.
A Home Instead CAREGiver can provide:
- Meal Preparation (which promotes a healthy diet)
- Medication Reminders (to help your patient adhere to the plan of care)
- Accompany to Doctor Visits
- Doing Laundry and Linens (to keep the patient in clean surroundings)
- Grocery Shopping
- Light Housekeeping
- Socializing to boost morale and encourage mental activity
- Help with Dressing
- Incontinence Care
- Hands-on Mobility Assistance to reduce fall risk
- Help with Bathing
- Prescription Pick-up
With Home Instead providing these key support services, the home health agency is free to focus on important medical services such as checking vitals, adjusting medication, pain management, providing medical and adaptive equipment and making adjustments to the care plan.
Our CAREGivers are also trained to recognize symptoms of major issues, such as stroke or heart attack, and report changes in condition to our office staff.
Providing Hospice Support
Caregiving can be exhausting and, at times, very hard on those involved. Let Home Instead Senior Care partner with your hospice team in order to bring peace of mind to families; we can provide 24/7 support to families with a loved one receiving hospice services. Home Instead’s respite care services alleviate the burden of caregiving or managing the household and allow family members to focus on quality time spent with their loved one during their time of great need. Additionally, we can also assist with detailed communication about change of condition.
Encouraging Provider/Home Health Directed Self-Care
We understand physicians’ frustration with chronic case patients who need to make changes to their daily lifestyles, but don’t always follow through with medical recommendations. Home Instead can serve as a reinforcing presence in the home to promote the self-care encouraged by their physician.
CAREGiver participation in grocery shopping and meal preparation for those with dietary needs, medication and exercise reminders for those who are forgetful, and transportation to/from follow up appointments all greatly benefit those patients needing to adjust their daily habits.
Home Instead can provide the support system that your patients need to get the most out of your medical care.
