Just like everyone is unique, so, too, are your needs as you age. Research has shown that those who stay home tend to live longer than those who are in nursing homes. While nursing homes are viable options, they are not needed for everyone. Most people are otherwise self-sufficient except for a few select areas in their lives. Maybe they need help remembering which medications to take, or they need help doing chores around the home and dressing because they have restricted mobility. Perhaps they need help with an IV or an injection.
This is where the beauty of home health care and medical home health care services come in. You can personalize these services to exactly what you need, whether that’s help from physical therapists after a recent surgery or it’s help with diabetes and blood pressure management.

We are available at all hours of the day and night when you need help the most. Our medical home health caregivers are carefully screened and trained in order to ensure you or your loved ones have the best care possible.

By hiring New York’s finest home health nurses, the staff at Angels on Call Homecare are able to provide specialty medical care from the comfort of your own home. If you have a complex medical condition or require specialized medical equipment, you don’t have to surrender to moving to a facility that provides around the clock care, you can trust your home health care team and stay in your own home instead!
You have a variety of options when it comes to in-home specialty medical care including intermittent nursing care, 24-hour nursing care, or a live-in nurse. Intermittent nursing care is for those who live at home with a complex medical condition that they can manage, for the most part, on their own, but need assistance with monitoring or need someone on call to help. 24-hour care offers around the clock nursing care from a passionate nursing care team. And, a live-in nursing option provides a dedicated nurse to be with you whenever you need them!
What type of specialty medical services can your home health medical team provide?
Complex Illness Support: Some diseases or illness require additional support and complex treatment regimens that exceed the abilities of most family caregivers. For example, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Myasthenia Gravis are both progressive diseases that cause a person to need total assistance one day, and be completely independent the next, but both require close monitoring and can cause dramatic changes rapidly. Having an in-home medical team that you can call can make all the difference in quality of life, disease progression, and independence.
Orthopedic/Surgery Recovery: Depending on the surgical procedure you’ve had, it may require a complex recovery process and medical equipment to facilitate rehabilitation. Some medical equipment you may need to manage include braces, external fixators, continuous passive motion (CPM) devices, pumps, drains, wound care, and medications. Short-term in-home speciality medical care can help you heal quicker, prevent setbacks or hospitalizations, and improve your outcome. Your in-home care team can also help teach you about your durable medical equipment (DME), conduct fall and safety assessments, and help create safer spaces in your home.
Movement Disorders or Weakness: Some conditions cause movement disorders or weakness that can impact mobility and make it unsafe to live alone or with a family caregiver. For example, Parkinson’s disease and stroke can dramatically impact your ability to safely navigate your home alone. The in-home medical care team at Angels on Call Homecare is able to assist with disease and symptom management as well as occupational and physical therapy and mobility/ transfers.
Dementia: Treating dementia, whether acute caused by a medical condition such as detoxing or stroke, or chronic and progressive such as the case with Alzheimer’s disease, requires a holistic medical plan. For some patients, close medication and symptom monitoring is required, while for others safety and preventing negative behaviors is the main focus. However, for all dementia patients, treating the underlying cause, slowing the progression, and providing a meaningful, stimulating environment is paramount. The medical team at Angels on Call Homecare is skilled in in-home memory care services and can help keep you or your loved one living at home longer.
