Advantage Home Health Services offers a variety of skilled services through Medicare. The services include:
Skilled Nursing Skilled Nursing is a service that must be provided by a registered nurse (RN) or a licensed practical nurse (LPN). They provide services in medical and health education, wound care, medication management, pain management and self care techniques and prevention strategies. A nurse is available 24 hours 7 days a week for our patients.
Physical Therapy Services are provided by a Physical Therapist or Physical Therapy Assistant. Physical therapy is the treatment of a physical dysfunction or injury by the use of therapeutic exercise and/or the application of modalities, intended to restore or facilitate normal function or development such as walking, balance and to regain normal range of motion within joints. Therapy is also used to help the patient remain safe in their home.
Home Health Aide Services provided by a health care professional who provides personal care under the direction of a registered nurse and a physician, such as bathing/dressing, and homemaker services such as light laundry and trash removal.
Occupational Therapy The use of productive or creative activities to restore function in activities of daily living; such as dressing, cooking, eating, bathing and common house hold chores.
Speech Therapy With the assistance of a Speech Therapist, patients are able to maintain or improve speech, especially in regards to neurological deficits such as a CVA. Receptive and expressive language as well as non-verbal communication are assessed. Speech Therapist also assist with the evaluation of swallowing and eating related to any swallowing problems.
Medical Social Worker The medical social worker collaborates with other professionals to assess patients' medical or physical condition and to evaluate patients' needs. The medical social worker can provide assistance in numerous areas such as with Medicaid application assistance, financial evaluations and assisting the caregivers or patients to multiple community resources. Instant PT/INR at home The above lab is usually drawn through a vein to test the thinness/thickness of blood while on blood thinners, such as Coumadin. Advantage has the new technology to perform this test via a finger stick, getting results in one minute or less. This helps eliminate scheduled trips to the outpatient lab. With this technology doctors will receive the results the same day.
Medication Management Our software allows us to view drug to drug interactions and to print patient leaflets based on medications entered into the computer. The communication between Advantage and the physician remains open as they are notified of any drug interactions that could affect the patient's care. Each patient is given a specific risk to benefit assessment which allows our clinicians to educate our patients and family members accordingly.
