In home health care, properly caring for an individual encompasses a wide range of needs, and connecting all these dots of care takes the help of committed, knowledgeable individuals, like our Care Advisors here at Alliance Home Health Care, who understand that home health care done well is making sure that all our clients’ needs are met. Which is why coordinate care is a vital part of what we do here at Alliance.
But what, exactly, is coordinate care?
Coordinate care is the process of taking the medical care of an individual, their at-home needs and desires, and combining this care with the desire to fulfill their human need for social interaction and mental stimulation, as well as the spiritual well-being of the individual. In other words, it’s about taking what makes one healthy and aligning this with what makes them happy as well.
Coordinate care starts as early as the transition from hospital to home. Our Care Advisors talk with your doctors and hospital physicians to learn about what will help you ease the transition to home, as well as what needs that may arise, and coordinate a home care plan that addresses these. Whether that’s helping to find someone shovel your driveway or assist in cooking and cleaning, to making sure that any changes that may need to be made to stairwells, hallways, and bathrooms are adjusted for the safest experience possible in your home.
But most of all, in coordinate care, it’s about being the bridge between doctors, patients, and families. Our Care Advisors are there to make sure that whomever we help always has a voice when speaking with their doctor, and that the right questions are being asked during appointments, and ensuring that their family is getting the information they need to do the best they can to help their friend or loved one.
