Tender Home Health Care is a top home health agency across the states of Texas and New Mexico. Founded by healthcare professionals who are passionate about delivering the best in patient care, and an end result of better quality of life, it stands out from other agencies in the industry. Using a unique approach that treats each patient as an individual, and partners with a team of doctors to ensure a patient’s goals are met, it has grown into a successful business that helps adults gain back their independence.
This reputation is earned through a list of services provided by a team of Chronic Disease Management trained nurses and clinicians who are driven by each individual’s plan of care.
These services include:
Tender Care Home Health’s team starts with a group of highly trained Registered Nurses, who help jumpstart a patient’s road to independence and better quality of life from the very first home visit. From that first visit, nurses work with doctors and other healthcare professionals to develop an individualized plan of care. Nurses can also do wound dressing, ostomy care, and intravenous therapy, as well as administer medication, monitor the general health of the patient, work on pain control, and provide other health support.
In many cases, patients may need help relearning how to perform daily tasks, or assistance with improving their speech after an illness or injury. A physical therapist can put together a plan of care to help a patient strengthen or regain the use of muscles and joints. An occupational therapist can help a patient with physical, developmental, social, or emotional disabilities as relearn how to perform daily functions such as eating, bathing, dressing, and more. A speech therapist can help a patient with impaired speech regain the ability to communicate clearly.
Medical Social Services
Tender Care Home Health services extend to include medical social workers in cases where a patient requires help outside the scope of their specific disease. This may include various avenues of counseling and community resources that could help the patient in his or her recovery. In some complex cases requiring extensive coordination of many different types of service, a social worker may also serve as the patient’s case manager.
Home Health Aides
What a patient would expect from any home health agency, Tender Care Home Health provides as well, but we do so with compassion, helping them to accomplish basic personal needs, such as getting out of bed, walking, bathing, dressing, and more.
The Tender Care Home Health list of services ends where most agencies’ begin – translating to a quality plan of care that’s not only individualized, but also perfected by a team of medical professionals right from the start. We believe that this helps a patient accomplish his or her goals more quickly and keeps them out of the hospital, enjoying life more fully.
