Skilled Nursing
Advanced Home Health Care Agency is proud to offer our patients the expertise of specifically trained and certified nurse specialists in Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Cardiac Care, Pain Management and Wound Care Management; nurses experienced in home health care;
Home care begins with a referral from a physician. The nurse is responsible for:
  • Assessing the patient’s condition and needs,
  • Developing and managing a mutually agreed upon care plan to meet those needs,
  • Providing the skilled care required, and
  • Offering the patient and family and/or caregivers education and information to maintain the patient’s health, safety and independence.
Our nurses respond to a variety of clinical needs, including medication management, post-surgical care, and disease management and care. In addition to providing the necessary clinical care, the goal of the home care nurse is to teach the patient self-management skills to better care for him/herself.

All   Advanced Home Health Care Agency nurses are required to participate in ongoing education and training to keep up-to-date on current trends and practices, as well as undergo regular competency testing.

Our patient satisfaction survey, sent to each patient upon discharge, illustrates that our patients are more than pleased with the level of care delivered by our clinicians.
