Catholic Health home care services make life a little easier by bringing our trademark compassionate care to you. Whether you're recovering from surgery, living with a disability, or discovering the challenges that aging presents, this program is an extension of the right way to care. Receiving home care in Niagara County means that a nurse or aid will come to your home to provide healthcare, personal assistance, or other needed services.
Medical Alert System – Whether you're at home or on the go, Catholic Health Home Response is your direct link to emergency help 24/7. We're able to ensure that someone is always there for you, with a team of highly-trained response specialists that can send help as soon as a call is received.
Assistance with Daily Living Activities – Daily living activities are those essential skills that satisfy our most basic needs. The nursing aids in our home care program provide support where you need it most in life – from housekeeping tasks to personal grooming habits and daily companionship.
Physical Therapy – Our physical therapists are committed to helping your body recover from virtually any injury or illness. Following a life-altering event, your body needs additional care in order to rebuild its strength, relieve pain, and relearn skills. We will work to develop a program based around your specific needs in order to help you have the most successful recovery possible.
Occupational Therapy – Some patients are living with conditions that make it increasingly difficult to take care of themselves. An occupational therapist can help enhance your abilities to engage in life, whether that's returning to work, improving your strength, or simply continuing to better yourself.
Speech Therapy – Speech therapy may be recommended for a variety of circumstances, including recovery from stroke and communication disabilities. Our programs are built to do much more than teach patients how to speak – therapists help patients strengthen muscles in their mouth and throat, improve tongue movements, as well as elevated vocabulary and understanding of directions.
Wound Care – A chronic wound or ulcer that does not heal within four weeks may require advanced care. The specialists at Catholic Health's advanced wound healing centers are all board certified in wound care and hyperbaric medicine. Our practice focuses on using patient evaluations to determine the treatment that will be most effective for you and your condition.
Palliative Care – Palliative care helps with the management of a chronic or terminal illness by improving quality of life for both the patient and their loved ones. Rather than traveling to a hospital, palliative care services bring nurses and doctors to you who provide pain relief and additional support during difficult times.
Spiritual Care – At Catholic Health, we respond to a call to provide care for the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. No one can prepare for how you might react when you or a loved one experiences a medical emergency or potentially life-threatening situation. Our spiritual care team is on-call 24/7 to provide the right kind of support for you – through discussion, prayer, and more.
Skilled Nursing for Seniors – Skilled nursing is the highest level of care a patient can receive outside of a hospital. Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and other healthcare professionals provide 24/7 care for seniors who are recovering from an injury, illness, or living with a chronic condition.
IV Therapy – The trained staff within our intravenous therapy program provides comprehensive care for patients by coordinating your treatment with your physicians. Our team is responsible for all supplies and equipment, and also supports your care plan with supplemental services and updates for your physician.
Social Work Services – Offering the services of skilled social workers is an additional way that Catholic Health enhances the lifestyle and independence of patients who require home-based care. Our social workers may provide emotional support, care management, and patient education as services for those in need.
Dietary Services – Registered dietitians are available as part of our home care services for patients who may need help ensuring that all of their nutrition needs are met. Living with disease or recovering from a procedure can make meeting dietary requirements more important than ever. Our providers are here to help you maintain a well-balanced lifestyle that supports your health.
Healthcare & Personal Assistance at Your Home
When you receive home care, a nurse, therapist, or home health aide will visit you at home to provide medical care or other services. Home Care is generally recommended if:
- you have been discharged from a hospital or other facility but require additional assistance at home
- you have medical conditions or physical challenges
- you need assistance with personal care, household chores or other activities of daily living
