We’re there when you need us – at the hospital, during discharge, and back home
Living with congestive heart failure (CHF) can be very debilitating for your elderly parent.
And it can be stressful and exhausting for you and your family, as you juggle hospital visits with the demands of work and your other responsibilities.
Can't take more time off work?
Eldercare Home Health can provide the relief you need.
We’ll provide caregivers in the hospital to give you and your family a break. We can provide overnight care, daytime care or part time coverage.
When it’s time to go home – from either an emergency department visit, or a hospital stay – the Registered Nurse Case Manager overseeing your parent’s care will also assist with your parent’s discharge. The Nurse will help ensure that everything you need is in place, so that the transition home goes smoothly.
Changing home care needs continue to be met
My mother has dementia and is unable to look after herself. I have found the caregivers from Eldercare Home Health to be competent, caring and dedicated to providing the required care for my mother. Both Lisa and my mother’s Case Manager nurse are readily available to address my questions or concerns and ensure my mother’s changing needs continue to be met. My mother is happy and well-cared for. I am very pleased with the quality of care and support Eldercare Home Health provides.

Living with the effects of congestive heart failure can be complicated. Our Registered Nurse Case Managers and PSW caregivers can help keep things moving forward once your parent is back home.
The right medications need to be taken at the right time in the right way. Blood values need to be properly monitored. There are medical and rehab appointments that your parent will need to go to.
Want the best care for your parent?
Over the counter, other prescription medications, and even some foods can get in the way of the medications that may be prescribed for your parent. ‘Non-medical’ companies aren’t able to help with these, and other serious issues that can affect your parent’s recovery.
The Eldercare Home Health Registered Nurse Case Manager will regularly review your parent’s medications and consult with your parent’s pharmacist and doctor, so we can help minimize the chance of interactions or an adverse reaction.
The Registered Nurse Case Manager will also communicate with your parent’s medical specialists and therapists on a professional level, in addition to directing and supervising our PSW caregivers.
Our goal is to improve your parent’s quality of life and reduce the chance that they’ll need to return to the hospital. And give you, peace of mind.
