Home Care Services
From our offices in Georgetown, KY, we send private-duty nurses, nursing assistants, home care aides, homemakers, and companions to the homes of our clients throughout northern Kentucky. Different levels of home care professionals are certified or trained for different tasks and responsibilities. Nurses tend to be hired mostly for skilled care such as medication administration, wound care, monitoring medical equipment, etc. Assistants performing personal care can usually perform all other home care services. The registered nurse performing your initial and ongoing service plan assessments will help decide which elements of service will work best in your home care service plan and what level of home care professional will best suit your needs.
Private-Duty NursingOur private-duty nurses stand ready to help with your skilled medical care on an as-needed, scheduled, or long-term basis. This may include observation and assessment when a medical condition is likely to worsen, setting up weekly pill boxes, helping with injections or other medication administration, chronic disease management coaching, wound care for pressure ulcers, and many other services best performed by nurses.
Age or disability can make it difficult for us to maintain the standards of living we once did. When you or your loved ones need hands-on support at home, our certified nursing assistants or personal care aides can assist with:
• Monitoring of Vital Signs
Our homemakers assist with routine household chores and can even help with heavier cleaning. Services include:
• Heavy cleaning, such as scrubbing bathtubs, washing windows and walls, cleaning carpets, and moving furniture
Social interaction keeps us mentally, physically, and emotionally engaged, but as we are separated from our friends and families by time and distance, we may find ourselves alone. A trusted companion can make us feel more secure at home and enliven our days with:
• Stimulating Conversation
TransportationTransportation can be an obstacle if you’re not able to get about as you once did, keeping you from shopping and important medical appointments. Fountain Community Healthcare Services caregivers pick you up, drive you safely to your appointment or errand, help you from the car, and wait with you until everything is concluded.
