Home Care Services
Inpatient length of stay has been declining, especially for patients who have undergone joint replacements, amputations and strokes. To address the needs of patient rehabilitation, supervised therapy in the home setting has grown. Home Care nurses and therapists map out a program of consistent, coordinated, cross-disciplinary care that is necessary for successful rehabilitation. At Lansdale Hospital, the Case Management Department assists in making the necessary arrangements for Home Care Services and are familiar with a number of providers in the North Penn Community. For assistance with Home Care Services and a list of providers, contact Case Management at 215-361-4596.
Home Care staff answer questions, clarify physician instructions, monitor for infections and provide the necessary physical and occupational therapy during their visit. To ease the transition to home, Home Care staff also work closely with family members and other health care professionals to be sure caregivers understand how to administer medications and make their homes more accessible and maneuverable for patients.
