Heart Home Care
After being discharged from the hospital, some cardiac patients need additional home care. Jefferson Health – Abington Home Care provides compassionate, skilled nursing and other care in the comfort and security of home.
Our Comprehensive Heart Failure Program also has a special home care service for heart failure patients. This service provides registered nurses with special training in heart failure care to help patients manage their chronic disorder at home.
Home Care Services
During visits, Home Care staff answer questions, clarify physician instructions, monitor for infections and provide necessary physical and occupational therapy. To ease the transition to home, Home Care staff also work closely with family members and other health care professionals so caregivers understand how to administer medications and make homes more accessible for patients.
