Aging, serious illness, long-term injury recovery and other health challenges can dramatically change lifestyles, making regular medical attention necessary. Home health care is the perfect solution for those who need medical services, therapy, counseling, and help with day-to-day tasks but do not want to remain in a skilled nursing facility, or hospital. The professionals at Sunrise Home Health Care work with patients and their loved ones to put together a skilled team of nurses, rehabilitation therapists, social workers, and certified nursing assistants according to each patient's needs. Our staff also educates patients about taking the best care of themselves, providing tools they need to become self-sufficient and stay as healthy as possible in the communities where they feel the most at home.
SKILLED NURSING CARE
Sunrise Home Health Care's skilled staff of registered nurses performs a wide array of vital tasks for patients while regularly coordinating with their doctors and other health care providers. We pride ourselves in the professional and personal dedication of our nurses.
We can teach you to administer your own injections and pre-measure medications to prevent dosage errors. Or, we can also administer injections for you, as frequently as needed. Sunrise will work with your doctor to assess treatment, dosage and provide comfort along with support.
Basic wound care includes cleaning wounds, changing wound dressings and administering antibiotic therapy (if prescribed). Along with self-care we train and educate patients and caregivers on how to change wound dressings, monitor healing, manage pain and recognize potential complications.
This service is to help you organize your medication for an easy and effective system of tracking daily dosages. Our trained nurses will pre-pour or pre-measure medications for you and assess the effectiveness of medications and monitor potential side effects. We will also work with your doctor and pharmacist to prevent dangerous side effects.
An alternative to nursing-home care, the Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) plan is for adults who wish to live at home but need assistance with day-to-day activities. The program is designed to provide each member with the very best possible care. We encourage patients to take an active part in their own health care, and we offer many choices of services under physician orders.
MEDICAL SOCIAL WORKERS
Learning about a serious illness can be a devastating shock, and the ensuing changes to one's life can be extremely difficult to adapt to. When you or a loved one suffers a serious illness or injury, you may be so overwhelmed with handling the physical side of your illness that you disregard the social and psychological facets of your health.
If you or a loved one faces any number of conditions that make it challenging to move, your doctor may prescribe physical therapy. Our physical therapists can help you recover mobility to make getting around your house — and getting back on your feet — easier. Sunrise Home Health Care combines the latest technology and hands-on care to ensure the right treatment needed and help you improve your strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.
Sometimes a stroke, illness, or injury can impact your fine motor skills and capacity to take care of yourself. Occupational therapy can help you or a loved one regain the capability to enjoy everyday activities, such as eating, dressing, and bathing, as well as preparing a meal or enjoying a favorite hobby. Our occupational therapists will develop a specific plan to meet your needs, and work with you to relearn necessary motor skills.
Speech therapy encompasses much more than relearning or refining your ability to form words, and it can service people of all ages. You or a loved one may have suffered a stroke or other illness that has affected the muscles that control swallowing and help you form words. Other conditions subsequent to brain injuries may also benefit from speech therapy.
