Health. Independence. Quality Outcomes.
Traditions Health brings the healthcare that patients need to the comfort of their own home. Our team of healthcare professionals has one goal in mind, helping patients regain and maintain their health and independence. Whether the patient is suffering from a minor illness, recovering from a surgical procedure or a chronic condition, our clinicians work with the physician, patient, and patient’s loved ones to determine reasonable goals and develop a plan to meet those goals.
When a patient is diagnosed with a chronic disease, it is important that they receive education regarding how to manage their disease process. Our team provides education regarding the disease process, sign and symptom awareness and management, and healthy lifestyle choices to decrease emergency department visits and hospitalization.

HOME HEALTH SERVICES
When patients are admitted for home health services, our compassionate team of Skilled Nurses will provide an initial assessment to understand their needs. They work very closely with patients and their physician to develop a plan of care specific to their condition. They also provide education that will help patients manage their health long term, promoting wellness and independence. Whether patients need simple monitoring and education or require more advanced care, such as going home with a ventilator, our nurses provide the care needed in the comfort of the patient's own home.
When suffering from an illness or injury, your strength and mobility may decrease or you may experience pain. Our Physical Therapists will work with you to develop a plan to improve your mobility and decrease pain. They often use therapeutic exercises, stretching, strengthening and ultrasound or electrical stimulation to promote strength, endurance and comfort.
Speech Therapists assist patients who have difficulty communicating or swallowing. If you have difficulty swallowing, our therapists will determine the least restrictive diet texture and liquid consistency to help you eat and drink more comfortably. It is also very important tha you take your medications and difficulty swallowing can lead to fear of taking your medication. Our therapists will work with you and your physician to determine the best consistency for your medications to promote good medication and adherence.
Communication is an important part of our everyday life, and it can be very frustrating for you and those around you when your ability to speak and communicate becomes decreased. Our Speech Therapists will provide you with the exercises and tools that you need to communicate as effectively as possible.
Occupational Therapists provide services that assist our patients in returning to their usual activities, such as bathing, preparing meals, and hosuekeeping. Our therapists will determine what is important to you and help you and your caregivers develop a plan to meet your goals. To achieve your goals, the therapist may help you adapt tasks you are performing or your environment. They encourage self-management to empower you to understand your condition and develop a plan to reach your health goals.
