The term "senior care" can encompass many types of care and services, which can leave you with a lot of questions. Our team at Interim HealthCare of Kittanning can assist you in your journey of finding quality care for your loved one. Our senior care services in Kittanning, PA provide a variety of services that can be beneficial to both you and your family.

What Does Senior Care in Kittanning Include?

When talking about senior care, you might hear the terms "home health" and "home care." These two terms sound very similar, but there are many differences between them. Home health implies skilled medical care, while home care simply means non-medical care. We provide both services to seniors in the local area.

Our medical, or home health care, includes three separate programs:

  • IV therapy: This service, also known as infusion therapy, is the administering of medications through an IV. Some common uses are for antibiotics and pain management.
  • Physical therapy: Our therapists can help your loved one regain strength and mobility following an injury or fall. We also offer occupational and speech therapy.
  • Wound care: This program is specialized for patients living with stomas and other wounds or skin conditions. Our nurses can help care for the wounds and teach your loved one how to monitor them on their own.

Our non-medical service is known as personal care and support. This program focuses on assisting seniors with everyday chores and tasks. From bathing and dressing to errands and light housekeeping, our caregivers can provide help and companionship for your loved one in the home.

Who Benefits from Senior Care in Kittanning?

Many people can benefit from our senior care programs. Our medical care services are great for seniors who are recovering from an illness, injury, or recent hospital stay.
