As adults, it is hard to sometimes fit our health into our busy schedules, especially if we think it may require more time spent in a doctor’s office or an additional cost. At Home Health of Wilson, we focus on patient-centered care. That means knowing the people we serve, understanding their needs and tailoring health care to ensure the best journey possible. There’s no place like home for rest and comfort. This is especially true when you are recovering from an illness or injury.

Home health enables you to receive the care you need in the comfort of your home and most of the time at no cost to you. Medicare is designed to cover these home health needs, it is just not common knowledge. Home health care is an effective and affordable solution for many patients’ needs and situations. With Home Health of Wilson, you can trust that the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor will be followed thoroughly as you receive high-quality and compassionate care. We work closely with all of our local doctors as well as the surrounding counties to provide you the best outcomes. We have programs tailored to meet all kinds of needs that fall under the home health umbrella.

Our new Continence Control Program is an in-home pelvic floor therapy that is non-invasive and will reduce the urgency, frequency and nocturia that millions of Americans deal with. Our Active Life Balance Program helps keep you functional and independent by using a collaborative approach to balance and its inhibitors.

Home health can change your life. Proper training and education on your current illnesses is part of our approach to keeping you at home and keeping you healthy. Do you need help managing medications? We can teach you about correct dosing and frequency, manage your progress and consult with your doctor. Do you need help just understanding your disease or condition? Our clinicians give you the information you need to take charge of your health. We empower you to identify red flags and spot potential issues early.

Are you making healthy food choices? We can provide nutrition management and education. Do you need your treatment progress monitored? We help you follow your doctor’s orders to speed up your recovery. Are you at risk for falls? Our therapists help you understand physical risks and limitations and coach you to be safe at home.

Home Health of Wilson continues to be an industry leader with professional staff members who include registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, aides, lymphedema specialists and, physical, occupational and speech therapists. We want the community to know that there are ways to prevent falls, medication mismanagement and unnecessary hospital visits, and that our specially trained staff is here to help 24/7.

If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the topics discussed in this column, or just wants some education on if Home Health of Wilson can improve your life, please don’t hesitate to give us a call today at 252-237-4335.

Join us for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. July 25 at the Wilson Chamber of Commerce to help us celebrate our recent accomplishments and welcome Dr. George Isaacs as our new medical director. Enjoy refreshments and meet our team!

Debra Harris is the executive director at Home Health of Wilson.
