Family members often serve as the primary caregivers to their ill or elderly loved ones. Home Health Care provides needed assistance to family caregivers allowing them to get back to their daily lives and enjoy more quality time with their home-bound loved ones. Forever Young Home Health Care Agency services patients in Philadelphia, Bucks County, and Montgomery County.
Skilled nursing care involves trained professionals performing necessary nursing services that are needed temporarily due to an illness or injury or in assisting a person’s recovery from an illness or injury. Our licensed Registered Nursing staff works closely with your primary physician to develop the best plan of care to quickly and comfortably speed up recovery and help individuals maintain their independence at home.
Hands-On In-Home Health Care
Depending on the needs of every individual, our nurse may order services such as: therapy, social work, aides, or home medical equipment. Our nursing services include care for cardiac, respiratory, cancer, and wound care, etc. The nurse assigned to each case will advise the primary care physician on the patient’s progress, supervise the care provided by the patient’s team, as well as educate the patient and their family on how to exercise care and precaution when Forever Young is no longer present.
Receiving quality skilled nursing care at home helps reduce hospital readmission because our staff is carefully watching for changes and maintaining our patients’ health. Studies have shown that patients who are recuperating from illness, injury or surgical procedure heal more quickly and more successfully when being treated in the comfort of their own home versus in a medical facility.
