If you are in need of Home Health Services, you can feel confident requesting services from th
Lady of the Sea Home Health Agency!
The Lady of the Sea Home Health Agency provides services in a patient's home at the request of a licensed physician. The term Home Health Agency often indicates that a home care provider is Medicare certified, as is Lady of the Sea Home Health Agency. Actual home care services are delivered at home to patients who are recovering from illness or medical treatment, disabled, chronically or terminally ill and in need of medical, nursing or social or therapeutic treatment and / or assistance with the essential activities of daily living. A plan of treatment for the patient is established by the physician and the services are provided by our certified and trained home health staff.
Our staff includes registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, a social worker, as well as physical therapists, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists and a registered dietitian.
Our registered nurses provide skilled services that cannot be performed safely and effectively by nonprofessional personnel. Some of these services include injections and intravenous therapy, wound care, education on disease treatment and prevention and patient assessments. The registered nurses also provide case management services.
Our physical therapists work to restore the mobility and strength of patients who are limited or disabled by physical injuries through the use of exercise, massage and other methods. Physical therapy treatment often alleviates pain and restores injured muscles.
Our Social workers will evaluate the social and emotional factors affecting ill and disabled individuals and provide counseling when necessary. The social worker will also help patients and their family members identify available community resources.
Our Speech language pathologists work to develop and restore the speech of patients with communication disorders, usually a result of a trauma such as surgery or a stroke. Speech therapists also retrain patients in breathing, swallowing and muscle control.
Our Occupational Therapists help patients who have physical, developmental or social problems that prevent them from performing the general activities of daily living. The therapist will instruct a patient on using specialized rehabilitation techniques and equipment to improve their function in tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing and basic household routines.
A dietitian is available to provide counseling services to patients who need professional dietary assessments and guidance to properly manage an illness or disability.
