Home Bound Healthcare is pleased to announce that we have extended our home care nursing program to include Psychiatric Nursing Services.
These services will provide in-home care for those individuals with a mental illness and/or cognitive impairments through:
• Ongoing evaluations
• Symptom management and teaching
• Medication monitoring
• Treatment compliance
IN ADDITION, THESE SPECIALIZED SERVICES WILL PROVIDE SUPPORT TO PATIENTS’ FAMILIES THROUGH CAREGIVER EDUCATION AND COUNSELING. WE ALSO ASSIST PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES IN COORDINATING CARE WITH OTHER AVAILABLE COMMUNITY RESOURCES.
STAFFED BY EXPERIENCED PSYCHIATRIC NURSES, SOCIAL WORKERS, CNA’S, OCCUPATIONAL AND PHYSICAL THERAPISTS, THESE COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES WILL DEVELOP A PLAN OF CARE AS ORDERED BY THEIR PHYSICIAN. CONTINUED PHYSICIAN CONSULTATION WILL BE PERFORMED BY THE VISITING NURSE THROUGH SCHEDULED CARE PLAN REVIEWS AND UPDATES.
