Recovering from a hospital stay can be challenging for your loved one, especially without proper care and assistance. You're probably relieved that they are returning home, but the lifestyle change alone can cause your loved one stress. Hiring an in home nurse in Kittanning, PA can relieve stress and help your loved one recover properly.

How an In Home Nurse Can Help

Bringing care and support into the home while your loved one recovers can increase the chances of a successful recovery and decrease hospital re-admittance. At Interim HealthCare of Kittanning, we have dedicated in home nurses who can help. We offer the following home health services:

  • IV therapy. Also known as infusion therapy, this service allows your loved one to receive medications or pain management drugs via IV in the comfort of their home.
  • Physical therapy. Our home-based therapy program can help your loved one regain comfort and independence with daily tasks and mobility in a familiar setting.
  • Wound care. If your loved one has an acute wound, incontinence, stomas, or another skin condition, our nurses can provide care and dressing changes for these in the home.

There are multiple benefits to receiving in home care during the transitional period between hospital and home life. An in home nurse can help create increased and effective communication between all parties, including you, your loved one, and their physician. When everyone is on the same page, it helps with the success rate of recovery and ensures the doctor's orders are being fulfilled.

After an injury or illness, there are often new medications or special care instructions from the doctor. Our nurses can help manage all the new aspects of your loved one's care. You can rest and have peace of mind knowing your loved one is receiving quality care from our in home nurses.
