When you need more help than outpatient visits can provide, yet don’t need to be hospitalized, talk to a healthcare provider at your community hospital about home care services. If your community hospital offers home care services, you can receive coordinated care within the comfort of your own home. The professionals who visit you will follow your doctor’s treatment plan. These providers may include physical therapists, nurses, behavioral health professionals, social workers, and more – depending on your unique needs.
Many people can benefit from professional nursing care within their own homes. For example, you might be a good candidate for this type of care plan if you’re recovering from surgery. Healthcare providers can help you learn about ways of modifying your home and using assistive devices to manage the tasks of daily living. You might also need professional nursing care at home if you’re recovering from a stroke or heart attack, or if you’re undergoing cancer treatments.
At Memorial Hospital of Tampa, South Tampa families will find a comprehensive range of professional nursing care services delivered in their own homes, including diabetic care, wound care, and so much more. To learn whether in-home professional nursing care might be right for your family, call our community hospital in Florida at (813) 873-6400.
