Psychiatric Nurses assess the mental health needs of individuals and families and develop and implement a nursing plan. Psychiatric Nurses are often involved in planning and administering interventions that promote good mental health. Psychiatric Nurses may also help patients with self-care, monitor medication, and teach patients about good health practices.
Physical Therapists manage and provide skilled physical therapy to clients with a wide variety of diagnoses and disabilities. Its all done in the home, in accordance with a physician’s plan of treatment.
Occupational Therapists perform therapeutic exercises and instruct in activities like meal preparation, toileting, and grooming. Occupational Therapists also assist with energy and endurance problems, and address equipment needs, all with the goal of fostering self-reliance.
Home Health Aides assist with “hands-on” personal care needs such as bathing, dressing, walking, and toileting. Medicare/Medicaid reimburses for these services while a patient is actively receiving care by a nurse, PT or OT. Private pay is an option if nursing is not required.
