Home Care Plays a Vital Role
Continuum of Care is a concept involving a system that guides and tracks patients over time through a comprehensive array of health services spanning all levels and intensity of care.
In-home care plays a vital role in the continuum of care by providing caregivers to assist with non-medical services like homemaking, medication reminders, assistance with activities of daily living and family respite care. These types of services help medically-fragile individuals and seniors live more independently. They also aid in reducing re-admissions back to the hospital.
“From a home care coordination perspective, it is of utmost importance for Generations Home Care services to play a role in understanding and making a connection to services outside of our non-medical scope of services. Our goal is to help educate and connect our clients to services within the entire Continuum of Care for best outcomes.”
-Statement from CEO, Cathy Shiroda
“As a home care agency, we work closely with our clients, family members, guardians and/or fiduciaries. Our caregivers are typically the first person involved in the care plan to notice a change of condition.”
-Statement from Client Services Director, Rachel McKusick
Generations Home Care, when necessary, refers clients to other skilled medical services like home health, mobile physicians, or hospice and palliative care.
Not only does this connectivity allow us to provide our clients with a range of health services that address the full spectrum of their needs within the continuum, but we also use our expertise to plug them into available local resources and support organizations.
The result is a holistic kind of in-home care that emphasizes a consistent, client-centered approach.
