Imagine an in-home care program that goes beyond companionship and assistance with daily living. Consider a program expertly designed to also enrich the lives of adults with neurological conditions while preserving and even improving mental and physical function. Home Care Now makes all of this possible through our Collaborative Care Program.
This program begins with an in-home assessment by the principal neurologist of Be Mobile Neurology. Dr. Boland develops a plan of care including neurology services plus activities and support in which home care aides will be involved. She then orients the care supervisors, aides, and family to the prescribed program.
In addition to in-home aide services from Home Care Now, Be Mobile Neurology will make home visits throughout the year and be available for telemedicine and phone consults.
The home care aides available through our Collaborative Care Program have graduated from our proprietary neurological care training curriculum. This course, developed in collaboration with Be Mobile Neurology, prepares our staff to professionally implement the physician-developed neurology care plan. What's more, the specialized training prepares your aides to provide meaningful feedback for your neurologist. The individual service plan can then be adjusted according to the changing needs of clients.
Home Care Now's Collaborative Care Program can enhance the lives of people with a variety of neurological conditions. These conditions often affect both physical and mental function. Even Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia are related to more rapid decline in physical function and heightened risk for fall injury. Similarly, neurological conditions people usually associate with physical limitations, such as Parkinson's, are associated with heightened risk of cognitive challenges. Home Care Now's Collaborative Care Program addresses both the mind and the body through long-term support designed to preserve independence, ability, and quality of life. Consider the Collaborative Care Program for these neurological conditions:
With Home Care Now's Collaborative Care Program, each client receives an assessment and care plan by a neurologist. Service plans will usually involve long-term support from private-duty, at-home aides. This occurs under the general direction of a doctor who will be providing ongoing care planning. Other services such as physical, occupational, or speech therapy will also be available. Elements such as the following may be core components of how we will help.
