HOME HEALTH CARE OF EAST TENNESSEE
Sharon Tallent , along with Scott Ruth of home health care of east tenn join this n that today to talk about home health and hospice care
this company is a locally owned and locally managed company taking care of people throughout southeast Tennessee - from the Cumberland Plateau to Chattanooga/Cleveland/Dayton to the NC line and just west of Knoxville.
----they employ skilled, professional staff to provide nursing care, therapy, and personal care assistance right in the patient's own home. Home health focuses on getting you back on your feet again after a hospital stay or a significant illness, or to help you manage a chronic condition. Hospice focuses on providing comfort and spiritual care at the end of a person's life.
-----their goal is to keep you where you want to be - at home. These days, there is so much to try to remember after coming home from the hospital or after a doctor's visit. Their knowledgeable nurses can help teach you and your caregiver about your new medications, diet, how to care for any wounds - basically how to make yourself better. The nurses are on-call 24/7 in case an issue arises.
------Therapy is an important aspect of home health care. After a hospital stay or illness, you may have significant weakness. The health benefits of returning to normal activities are proven. The therapists are trained to help you regain your strength and independence. They also evaluate your home for safety - to avoid the risk of falling and ending up with a more serious injury.
-----Home Health and Hospice must be prescribed by your physician. You should discuss your needs and benefits with your doctor. Legally, it is your right to choose the home health and hospice provider who will provide services to you. Of course, we hope you will choose the caring, compassionate staff of Home Health Care of East Tennessee, Inc. and Hospice.
