NursePartners is dedicated to providing the best home health care right here in Old City, Philadelphia. We are here to provide a peace of mind for you and your family. Below is a list of in-home services we usually offer clients, but we customize each experience depending on the desire or needs of the client and their family.
- Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Our carepartners, registered Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), help clients look and feel their best. These services enhance clients’ mental and physical well-being, helping them feel positive about their appearance. These experiences not only promote good hygiene, but allow clients to relax and stimulate their circulation.
- Mobility Assistance
We try to preserve an active lifestyle for our clients. Being able to get out offers physical and mental health benefits to seniors. Physical health benefits of activity include increased energy, a strong heart, lower blood pressure, improved digestions, and restful sleep. Generally, activity improves mood, relieves stress, and increases alertness.
- Transferring and Positioning
Our team’s expertise lies in caring for the aging population. We are experienced to move and place clients in correct posture position to promote health, safety, and the proper functioning of the body’s many systems. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and facilitate proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
- Feeding and Diet monitoring
NursePartners’ staff will enable clients to eat a well balanced diet that provides the energy needed for active living and nutrients for disease prevention. Adults may need help feeding themselves for a variety of reasons. Usually older adults find it difficult to accept the loss of independence. We make every effort to ensure that mealtime is both enjoyable and social.
- Toileting and Incontinence Care
We are sensitive and compassionate in helping each client maintain self-esteem and dignity as they receive assistance with toileting and personal hygiene. Through our caring approach, NursePartners’ staff decreases clients’ anxiety and the embarrassment that accompanies the loss of independence and need for toileting assistance.
- Meal Preparation
We ensure that your loved one receives hot, delicious, and nutritious meals. We strive to include care recipients in the planning and preparation of these meals. Care partners share meals in order to make mealtimes a social activity.
The washing, dying, ironing and storage of clothing can be done either in the client’s home or the laundromat. We involve the client to make sure laundry is done to preference.
- Light Housekeeping
NursePartners’ light housekeeping services include dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, organization, changing linens, and performing other maintenance chores.
- Grocery Shopping/Errands
We are happy to shop for groceries and run errands. Clients may choose to stay home or accompany us as we shop. We believe that participating in errands is a great way to stay active!
NursePartners staff are insured privately and are able to transport the client in either our vehicle or another privately insured vehicle. We accompany the client to medical appointments, shopping trips, barbershops, and beauty salons.
- Medication Reminders
Although Certified Nursing Assistants cannot administer medication, we will help ensure that clients take medications as prescribed. We can assist with opening medication containers and reminding the client when it is time to take doses.
Each clinician that we employ possesses experience with the aging population and understands and respects each client. We will work diligently to assist, achieve, and maintain the maximum level of independence that is so important to older adults.
