Home Health

Home health offers patients quality healthcare in the comfort of their homes, from a diverse team of professionals —RNs/LPNs, MSWs, home health aides, physical, occupational and speech therapists—available and on-call 24/7/365.

Home health services cover a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Wound care
  • IV therapy
  • Injections
  • Chronic disease management, including CHF, COPD, diabetes and hypertension
  • Pain management
  • Post-surgical care
  • Post-stroke care

Home Health provides patients with skilled nurses, LVNs, counselors, occupational and physical therapists, empowering post-surgery, wound care and rehabilitation at home, helping patients recover without the need for extended hospital stays.

Home Care provides caregivers to help patients with every aspect of everyday life, from in-home personal care, feeding and medication administration to housekeeping and running errands.

To qualify for Home Health services, patients must have a medical need for skilled nursing or therapy and meet Medicare’s definition of “homebound”. Patients who leave their home infrequently because it requires taxing effort fall within Medicare’s guidelines. Parentis Health also requires that requests for Home Health services come directly from patients’ physicians.

No; patients can be temporarily homebound due to illness or injury to qualify.

We accept both private insurance coverage and medicare. Medicare covers 100% of Home Health services for qualified patients.

Residential Care
Residential care is a unique treatment and housing arrangement where caregivers live alongside residents, empowering them to extensively monitor and respond quickly to their needs. Residential care facilities are smaller environments with fewer residents than traditional assisted living facilities, allowing for more personalized care. Parentis Health’s Verona Court homes feature no more than six residents, with two full-time caregivers who live on site; ensuring residents experience a continuous care ratio of 1:3.
Verona Court Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) are different from most long-term care facilities because they’re real homes, with all of the comfort and warmth you and your loved ones expect.

Each Verona Court home is located in an upscale neighborhood, comfortable, secure, and beautifully appointed with all of the comforts of home. Ample communal spaces foster meaningful relationships between fellow residents and caregivers.

Hospice also aims to provide comfort to those with life-limiting illness and addresses the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of not only the patient but also the patient’s family caregivers. Typically, hospice care is offered when a person’s prognosis is six months or less and curative measures have been exhausted or are no longer desired.

Hospice covers treatments for symptom control or pain relief, durable medical equipment, medical supplies, and a variety of services covered by Medicare necessary to manage the person’s pain and other symptoms related to the terminal illness. This may include physical, speech, and occupational therapy, short-term inpatient and respite care, regular visits and oversight from a care team including a nurse, home health aides, a social worker, the hospice chaplain, and the hospice physician.

Patient, or the patient’s responsible party, always has the freedom to choose their Hospice, as well as revoke Hospice services at any time.

“Comfort care”, “palliative care” and “hospice care” are often used interchangeably because they generally refer to the same approach to patient care: focusing on symptom control, pain relief and quality of life.

While “comfort care” and “palliative care” are basically the same, hospice is a far more robust approach, engaging entire teams to help provide comfort and care to patients and families.

“Comfort care” and “palliative care” aren’t always afforded the same sense of expediency as hospice care. One of the advantages of hospice care is the speed at which healthcare is delivered. Medications, equipment, and treatment can be delivered anytime to wherever a patient is, without the need for physician appointments or authorizations.

In any disease trajectory, there are three possible outcomes: stability, improvement, or decline. Patients in decline may qualify for hospice care.

To qualify for hospice, a patient’s prognosis is assessed according to five criteria:

If the patient’s quality of life would not be improved by aggressive treatment such as hospitalization, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or hemodialysis

A patient’s nutritional status, generally determined by poor appetite and weight loss

How functional a patient is, and how much this has changed recently The normal progression of a specific diseasePhysicians make assessments based on a patient’s declining health during a 12 month period, as well as projections on disease progression six months out, using guidelines set forth by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) CMS has issued guidelines for specific diseases, including AIDS, cancer, dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, ALS, heart and liver failure

Patients meeting this criteria may receive hospice care with a referral from their attending physician.

We provide whatever support patients and families need, however they need it, from our skilled nurses to our volunteers.

We also have an in-house Chaplain and Bereavement Counselor on-call to offer comfort in all forms—from spiritual support and grief counseling to just being an extra pair of eyes and ears.

Often Hospice services are covered through Medicare. Call us to discuss your specific situation and we’ll be happy to help.
