DOMICILIARY HEALTH CARE SERVICE
Domiciliary Health Care Service
(Managing your loved one’s Care – More and Beyond)
Home health care is a system of care provided by our skilled practitioners to patients in their homes under the direction of a physician. Domiciliary hospitalisation refers to a situation where a person is considered hospitalised even if they are receiving treatment at home. We help our patients to get quality care though our Domiciliary Health Care Service which lets a patient to have the comfort of getting treated at home.
We help patients who are under certain circumstances wherein the continuous hospitalisation of a person may not be possible or preferable. For instance, if you are the parent of a minor requiring constant medical treatment and hospitalisation, you may not be comfortable with them staying at a hospital for an extended period, unsupervised.
Similarly, if your parents are in need of hospitalisation owing to a medical condition or accidental injury that can be treated at home, you may prefer having them cared for at home rather than in the hospital. We help you at this time with our team of care givers for your domiciliary hospitalisation.
A doctor will visit the patient at home to diagnose and treat the illness (es). He or she may also periodically review the home health care needs.
The most common form of domiciliary health care is some type of nursing care depending on the person's needs. In consultation with the doctor, a registered nurse will set up a plan of care. Nursing care may include wound dressing, ostomy care, intravenous therapy, administering medication, monitoring the general health of the patient, pain control, and other health support.
Physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy
Some patients may need help relearning how to perform daily duties or improve their speech after an illness or injury. A physical therapist can put together a plan of care to help a patient regain or strengthen use of muscles and joints. An occupational therapist can help a patient with physical, developmental, social, or emotional disabilities relearn how to perform such daily functions 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
Medical social workers provide various services to the patient, including counselling and locating community resources to help the patient in his or her recovery. Some social workers are also the patient's case manager--if the patient's medical condition is very complex and requires coordination of many services.
Dieticians can come to a patient's home to provide dietary assessments and guidance to support the treatment plan.
Laboratory and X-ray imaging
Certain laboratory tests, such as blood and urine tests, can be performed in the comfort of the patient's home. In addition, portable X-ray machines allow lab technicians to perform this service at home if it is necessary.
Medicine and medical equipment can be delivered at home. If the patient needs it, training can be provided on how to take medicines or use of the equipment, including intravenous therapy.
