Hospice & HomeCare of Reno County has a dedicated staff with deep experience in occupational, physical and speech therapies. Our team focuses on improving quality of life and independence, helping individuals achieve their goals to safely function and remain in their homes. We provide caregiver education and support to help meet the needs of the individuals we serve.
Our HomeCare services are designed to promote physical and emotional healing and rehabilitation. They range from response to acute needs following a hospitalization to assistance with managing a chronic illness. Our HomeCare services include:
Occupational Therapy addresses safety and independence with self-care or daily activities such as bathing, dressing, toileting, meal preparation and laundry. Our therapists also support individuals with instructions and training for low vision, fall prevention and use of durable medical equipment, home modifications and lymphedema therapy.
Physical Therapy focuses on fall prevention and helping patients return to their community activities by addressing safety and independence with mobility and transfers, including training for the use of devices such as a walker, cane or wheelchair. To improve function, our therapists plan and implement individualized home exercise programs to improve strength, balance and flexibility.
Speech Therapy addresses communication skills (including speaking, listening, reading and writing), problem solving and memory. Our therapy team also works to improve swallowing function. Training is provided along with activities and recommendations to promote safety and improvement in these areas.
Nursing Services are also available in HomeCare. Nursing may provide physical assessment, education on disease process and/or medications, medication setup, wound care and IV medications.
Social Services are available to help individuals access community assistance, complete advance directives and assist with financial needs.
Home Health Aide Services assist with self-care activities such as bathing and personal hygiene needs, as directed by a nurse or occupational therapist.
