Becoming a Home Care Patient
Cardinal Hill Home Care offers services to patients without regard to race, creed, disability, religion or color.
Services are available to patients in the following Kentucky counties:
The patient's physician must prescribe home care services and the patient must be homebound, but does not have to be confined to bed.
In addition, the patient and the family must be willing to work with the Cardinal Hill Home Care staff in order to improve the patient's health.
Family members are an essential part of the treatment team, and the involvement is vital to the patient's success in rehabilitation.
We encourage the family to observe and participate in educational sessions and ask questions throughout the patient's home care program.
Family members will work closely with the Cardinal Hill Home Care case manager.
Individualized Treatment Plan
A plan of care is designed to meet each patient's individual needs. The team members focus on helping the patient regain the ability to live life as independently as possible, revising the patient's treatment plan as each new goal is met. The plan of care may include any or all of the following services:
A registered nurse sets a plan of treatment with the doctor, patient and family. Nursing services may include physical exams, wound care, catheter care, IV therapy, tracheostomy care, colostomy care and patient and family teaching.
A licensed physical therapist will work with the patient to meet the patient's needs, which may include pain relief, prevention of further disability and/or restoring function for maximum independence. Each therapist will customize a home exercise program that meets the patient's specific needs.
A licensed occupational therapist will work with the patient to improve activities of daily living. This may include increasing independence with self-care and other functional tasks.
A licensed speech-language pathologist will work with those patients requiring assistance with speaking, pronunciation, comprehension, reading, writing, memory, cognition, and swallowing.
Medical Social Work Services
The social worker will work with the patient and family to address personal, social, emotional or financial needs related to the illness and their progress.
Home Health Aide Services
These services serve as a supplement to those provided by the other home health clinicians. Aides may assist with bathing, grooming, routine exercises and light household tasks.
Cardinal Hill Home Care staff will work with the patient and family to assess the patient's payment options.
In most situations, Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance (if this is a benefit of the patient's policy) will pay for home care services.
Private payment may also be arranged
