NURSING SERVICES

Skilled nursing care differs from custodial or companion care because it provides specific medical attention to you or your loved one. The goal of our skilled nursing services is to allow the patient to remain home despite an injury, illness or chronic condition that may otherwise require hospitalization or regular visits to a medical office. Through their consistent observations and evaluations, Integra's highly-trained Skilled Nurses can help prevent hospitalization, readmission, or inconvenient trips to a physician's office.

For added peace of mind, our skilled nursing team is available 24/7/365 to care for you or your loved one. When there is an urgent need, all it takes is one phone call to reach a live member of our team.

But the chief benefit of Integra's skilled nursing services is the ability of the patient to remain at home in familiar surroundings and maintain a quality of life that is higher than that found in an institutional setting. Our highly-trained and educated skilled nurses strive to provide independence, comfort and safety with a high level of concern and compassion.

  • Wound care – Helps promote fast, safe healing
  • Administration of intravenous (IV) solutions – Ensures the correct dosage

PET SERVICES

Integra Home Health Care knows that many of our clients have pets that are often considered a member of the family. Pets have shown to have therapeutic value, too. The National Institute of Health reports that, "… companion animals, in addition to their well-known role as helpers to the handicapped, may alleviate depression, solace the lonely, facilitate psycho-therapy, socialize criminals, lower blood pressure, increase survivorship from myocardial infarction and ease the social pain of aging in our society."

Sometimes, however, the homebound client is unable to properly care for a dog or cat in the home.

Because we know how important a pet may be, Integra Home Health Care also provides pet care services for dogs and cats.

For details on this important service, please contact our office at (952) 985-0672.
