Used within home health, palliative care, and hospice environments, skilled nursing can help improve quality of life by providing comfort measures such as pain management, symptom control, and end-of-life care. Your nursing team can also provide education for both the patient and family members or other caregivers.
Skilled nurses are an integral part of our care teams and also offer compassionate support to those facing terminal or life-limiting illnesses in the comfort of their own homes. In addition to providing vital medical services, your skilled nursing team will be your partner as you navigate a challenging part of life.
Through collaboration with you as a patient, family or caregivers, physicians, counselors, social workers, and other specialists, your skilled nurse will ensure you are comfortable and confident in your level of care.
At Traditions, our team prides itself on expertise in all levels of home care, including ongoing home health care, palliative care, and hospice. Skilled nurses play a vital role in the care of all our patients.
Home health nurses provide a wide variety of services, from routine check-ups and wound care to pain management and symptom control. Our nurses work with the patient’s family or caregivers to ensure that each individual receives the best care possible in the comfort of their own home.
Palliative care nurses promote comfort and quality of life for patients with serious illnesses. Rather than prioritizing recovery or treatment, palliative care nurses work closely with the patient's care team to provide support, relieve symptoms such as pain and discomfort, and ensure quality medical care is maintained.
Hospice nurses are specially trained to provide end-of-life care for individuals facing terminal illnesses. They focus on creating a comfortable environment and providing emotional support, pain management, and other treatments as needed. In addition, hospice nurses work with the patient's family or caregivers to ensure that they are coping with their loved one’s condition.
When provided in the home setting, skilled nursing can provide a great deal of comfort for patients and their families. The benefits include:
