MANCHESTER & SOUTHERN NH, INC.
Our Home Care Program provides high-quality, cost effective alternatives to institutional care. A team of nurses, therapists, social workers, aides and dietitians work under the order of a physician to provide patients and their families with essential healthcare services in the comfort of their home. In developing an appropriate plan of care for each patient, staff are trained to utilize the varied expertise of the home care team to provide the maximum care necessary for recovery. This team works together with the patient and family to promote independence.
The home care team assists in making those individuals who are recovering from surgery or a serious illness feel more comfortable and safe by providing comprehensive care in the home. A registered dietitian is available for nutritional counseling, and a registered nurse is on call 24 hours a day. Members of the home care team also include medical social workers who can help identify and manage psychosocial problems that arise from an individual's illness or medical treatment. The social worker also can provide counseling and assist with access to appropriate financial and community resources. Home health aides provide help to people who need assistance with daily living tasks.
