Home medical care is a service catered to your loved one staying at home who may have difficulty seeking medical services due to his/her medical condition or mobility issues. Home medical care may include services such as doing a regular review of the health status, prescription of medication, or even the order and review of diagnostic tests.
For home nursing care, nurses will come to the residence to tend to the care recipient, such as monitoring blood pressure and blood sugar levels. The service will also help in wound dressing, changing of urine catheter and nasogastric tube. Education and caregiver training will also be provided to the family to help caregivers gain knowledge and skills that will help in caring for their loved ones.
