Amy_ShawleyThis month, we celebrate National Skilled Nursing Week. Amy Shawley, Operations Manager, for St. Joseph HomeCare and Hospice tells us more about the support and services they provide:

National Skilled Nursing Care Week is May 13-19. We are so pleased to have this opportunity to recognize and thank those clinicians providing skilled nursing care to patients in need. The St. Joseph HomeCare and Hospice team, including our skilled nurses, work hard to support patients in their homes. We want to enable patients to heal in the comfort of their home after a surgery, illness or injury.

Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care provided by registered nurses for those who need long-term nursing care or for those who need short-term concentrated rehabilitation while recovering from a surgery or an illness. St. Joseph HomeCare provides high-quality home care services that are tailored to each patient’s individualized needs. We have many options for care, including:

  • Skilled Registered Nurse Services
  • Physical Therapy Services
  • Occupational Therapy Services
  • Home Health Aid Services
  • Speech Therapy Services
  • Medical Social Workers

Our skilled nursing team offers a variety of services, including diabetes education, wound care, post-surgical care, medication management and education, and 24-hour on-call nursing care.
