Hospital stays can cause stress for your loved one, and the return home can be equally stressful. Adjusting to a new daily routine and dealing with new medications or mobility issues can land your loved one back in the hospital. With an in home nurse in Morristown, TN, the transition can be smoother.

How an In Home Nurse Can Help

Bridging the gap between the constant care of a hospital and daily life at home is vital to the success of your loved one's recovery. An in home nurse is the perfect way to provide that transitional care. By bringing assistance and recovery procedures into the home, your loved one can recuperate in a comfortable setting.

At Interim HealthCare of East Tennessee, our in home nurses offer the following services:

  • Wound care. This type of care specializes in skin conditions including stomas, ostomies, and dermal ulcers.
  • Physical and speech therapy. After a major health incident, your loved one could experience mobility or speech issues. Our home based therapy programs allow them to regain independence in the comfort of their own home.
  • Infusion therapy. Some medications are required to be administered via IV. Our in home nurses are able to provide these treatments to your loved one at home.

Providing these types of care in the home makes recovery more comfortable for your loved one and more convenient for you. You won't have to worry over frequent transportation to follow-up treatments or appointments, and your loved one won't have the added stress of travel while trying to recuperate. 

Our home care also gives peace of mind to the family during the recovery period. If you live away from your loved one, you can be comforted knowing they are receiving top-notch care while you are away.

We also offer additional services, including chronic disease care and respite care for family caregivers. No matter what your loved one's situation is, we will create a personalized care plan that works for them and you.
