Homecare

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, a 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 pathologist, physical therapist, and occupational therapist.

Home Monitoring Technology

home monitoringWith 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 ER 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.
