An interdisciplinary team of nurses, dietary technicians, social workers and therapists will access and put in place an individual management program for many chronic medical illnesses and conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, declines in mobility and COPD to help our long term residents and short term patients maintain the highest level of physical functioning. In collaboration with your physician, our Nurse Practitioner and our interdisciplinary team, we will do our best to provide care "in-place" to quickly resolve chronic conditions before they become acute, and result in an avoidable hospitalization.
We offer respite care as a part of our long-term care program. We can provide caregivers a temporary break from the rewarding, yet challenging task of caring for a loved one at home. Whether it is for a few days or a few weeks, our staff will provide the very best care during this time, allowing the caregiver a worry free retreat to rest and renew their own well-being.
From our nurses to our housekeepers and the dietary staff, we will strive to provide the same continuity and quality of care that your loved one receives at home. Contact our admissions director for more information and availability.
Restorative nursing focuses on maintaining the function of the individual over a prolonged period of time, enabling them to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. In an effort to identify any risks for functional declines, our nursing and therapy staff will identify individuals that may be at risk for decline in a number of areas including: bed mobility, eating, transfers, toilet use, and range of motion. In addition, individuals that have recently fallen may also benefit from restorative nursing.
Our skilled restorative nurses and aids take the time out to provide restorative nursing care to each and every individual. Our program is designed to ensure that each person receives adequate functional gains in all areas of therapy and care.
Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together to provide an extra layer of support. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness, whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
Sometimes residents of our facilities face terminal diagnoses, and one of the most important services our facilities provide is collaborating with a hospice provider to provide palliative care to those residents. While we always work well with outside hospice providers, we believe that our residents may benefit from the efficiencies and integration of care resulting from the common ownership of our facilities and Hospice of Southwest Ohio.
