I have esophageal/stomach cancer and from the beginning, homecare has been my saving grace. Jocelyn and the team have gone above and beyond to get me through the hardest time in my life. They have made sure my health and safety are first and have made communication between doctors and team members easy. I do not know what I would have done without them.
Glacial Ridge Homecare was established in 1985 and is a Medicare certified agency. Homecare provides individuals of all age groups the opportunity to receive professional health care services in their home, be it a house, apartment, or assisted living setting. This manner of health care makes healing and rehabilitation easier and more affordable.
Homecare uses a team approach. The physician recommends the services appropriate for each patient and the health plan determines eligibility for coverage of those services. Then, an RN case manager assesses the patient’s need for other services and disciplines and helps coordinate that care delivery. Other members of the team might include an LPN, home health aide, social worker, speech therapist, physical therapist, and occupational therapist.
The homecare I received from GRHS was a very good experience for me. The therapists – OT and PT – and nurses always came with a friendly smile and were very helpful in explaining how the home sessions would help heal and strengthen my body after spinal surgery. They were patient, kind, and gentle, working hard to make it as comfortable as possible for me, while still challenging me to reach the next level of strength. The part I valued the most was the constant care and concern for my total well-being. These people became true friends.
I was hurt in a very bad car accident. I was hit broadside and broke my neck. I was very weak and numb when I left the hospital. My arms and neck were very sore and numb. The staff who came to my home were very kind and answered all my questions with care. I was very happy with how soon I became healthy again. I’m glad we have these services available.
Home Monitoring Technology
With the use of our new home monitors, patients care can be monitored 7 days a week from the convenience of their home! The best aspect of the technology is that even the smallest change in health status can be identified and evaluated. From this point, preventative care can be initiated and delivered whereby avoiding emergency room visits and hospitalizations. In addition, it is a useful tool for educating the client about better management of their disease and improving their quality of life. At the same time, it provides a sense of security for the patient and peace of mind for their family when they aren’t able to be there every day with their loved one. Call for more information about the easy-to-use and cost-effective monitoring system and how it can help you or someone you know!
Homecare is licensed and Medicare and Medicaid certified.
This program is for adults who don’t need all of our homecare services but would still like assistance in setting up their medications.
