How Home Care Helps

image46

Returning Home from the Hospital

When an accident or sudden illness results in a trip to the hospital, patients and families are focused on one thing: how can I get home?  Returning to health is the priority.  But healing is a process that takes time.  Our clinicians and paraprofessionals are focused on alleviating the physical, emotional, and financial pain that comes from a major health issue.


We coordinate closely with the hospital, rehabilitation and nursing facilities that ease the path to home to ensure that our client's priorities and goals are honored.  Our clinical staff will perform a detailed assessment of what resources and services will support safely returning to health at home.  Once we establish our plan of care together, we'll introduce you to our staff who will partner as a trusted resource to assist with medications, assist with therapy, teach new skills or even help with cooking and cleaning up.

Caring for Family

When you have a family member that needs help, you don't hesitate to jump in.  But that doesn't mean its easy to do.  We help answer the question "how am I going to do that?"  Whether you're helping to manage care from another state or in a shared home, having experts to help organize and meet the needs of your loved one is critical.


You don't have to do it all alone.  We're here to help.  Let us help you assess needs and identify resources to ease the burden of caring for someone in your life.

Our Services

Skilled Nursing Care

 The Nurses at Estrella Home Health Care are compassionate experienced skilled Home Health Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses who will provide a comprehensive assessment upon admission to our agency. The nurse will work closely with the patient and their family to develop an individualized plan of care with the collaboration of your team to support you in living independently at home. 

Medicaid Waiver Services

Many of the communities we serve have Medicaid Waiver Programs that arrange services for at-home care. Programs including In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) and Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) provide resources for eligible Medicaid beneficiaries.

 
 

Programs vary by state, and not all states offer the same programs. We can help with that, too. These programs can be complex. We're experts in helping you navigate them.

Personal Care and Homemaking

As patients seek to remain at home while managing a long-term illness or injury, some daily personal care activities can be challenging to manage.  Personal Care Providers assist with daily activities like bathing, hair care, dressing and hygiene.  They can also assist with meal preparation, feeding and help with protective oversight of patients at-risk of further injury.   Our homemakers provide light housekeeping, meal preparation, bed-making and laundry.  We can even assist with errands and shopping for you. 

Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy

  Our experienced therapists offer treatments to restore muscle function and mobility, restoration exercises, sensation restoration, hearing and speech.  Therapists assist with restoring lost function or can perform early interventions for children.  As part of a broader care team, our expert therapists support your goals to return to health. 

Nurse Aides

Our nurse aides assist with supervised medical services in support of daily living at home.  They assist with challenging medical needs like respiratory care, wound care prevention, catheter maintenance, transfers and positioning.  When daily personal care needs specialized skills, our experienced nurse aides are there to help.

Medical Social Worker

Our experienced team of medical social workers provide support programs and services, including psychosocial assessments, rehabilitation planning, assistance with inpatient and outpatient services, case management, and education regarding alternative living arrangements.
