Because there’s no place like home to care for your child, St. Agnes Healthcare trained professionals are here to offer same level of care your child would receive in a facility right in the comfort of your home. Children with medically complex and chronic health conditions, who would otherwise remain in a facility, can be cared for in the comfort of their own home by highly skilled nurses, therapists and certified nursing assistants.This allows families to stay together and the child to receive the high level of care needed. Below type of services are available:
Private Duty Nursing
Our Private Duty Nursing provides one-on-one nursing care with families usually lasting from 4 – 24-hour shifts by a licensed RN or LVN. A nurse carries out the patient’s medical care and treatment according to his/her doctor’s orders. We coordinate the patient’s specific care needed with the Doctors, the family and other professionals involved to meet the needs and development goals of their children. We assist the family in providing each child the environment and modern care needed to reach their optional well-being all in the comfort of their homes.
Skilled Nursing Visits and Respite Care
- Skilled Nursing Visits
Skilled Nursing Visits, unlike private duty nursing, last up to 2-3 hours. This care provides intermittent skilled nursing by RN or LVN to the patient in the comfort of their home, allowing them to heal and restore health in a familiar environment. The nurse assists in the care of the patient by providing a wide range of medical services, such as medication management, wound care, and IV therapy. Depending on the patient’s plan of care as ordered by the physicians, the nurse may make multiple intermittent visits each week.
- Respite Nursing
Respite Nursing is provided to relieve the caregiver when needed the most; allowing him/her an opportunity to recharge for self-care. If you need time for personal care, family trips, vacation or just to catch up on rest, St. Agnes can ease your mind while you are away knowing our trained and qualified nurses are there to take care of your loved one.
