Joplin, Missouri, is a vibrant, working-class city in southwest Missouri near the border of Kansas. Phoenix Home Care is proud to be a part of Joplin’s close-knit community. This city has a deep commitment to healthcare thanks to two hospitals and networks of health providers. In today’s blog from Phoenix Home Care, we showcase our services in Joplin.
Home health services focus on providing skilled health care within the home. Rather than make trips to a doctor’s office, medical professionals come to you or your loved one at home. The overall goal is to prevent the need for someone to make regular trips to the doctor’s office or for extended hospital stays.
Our nurses help with chronic medical conditions that need constant treatment, or they can help with acute conditions that happen once and then heal after a time. As examples, Phoenix Home Care staff can administer diabetes medications, aid with post-surgery or post-fall care, and take vital signs to monitor patients with heart or lung conditions.
Home care does more than just handle medical needs. The staff at Phoenix Home Care runs errands like grocery shopping, performs light housekeeping such as laundry and dusting, and straightens up the house. An in-home caregiver might also set up medications and provide respite care. Home care is designed to allow you or your loved one to stay at home rather than move into a nursing home.
Hospice care is a unique situation, and it’s where Phoenix Home Care shines. We promise to treat your family member with dignity and respect as he or she transitions to the end of life. Our team talks to your loved one’s doctor to determine how best to proceed with hospice care, including medications, diet, comfort, and any pain-relieving measures. Hospice is an emotional, trying time for everyone. Our staff understands this and will do everything possible to make this situation more manageable.
