Mrs. G. has severe MS and is dependent on outside care. Mrs. G. is qualified to receive home care assistance seven days a week through the state’s Medicaid program.
Living at Home SeniorCare provides a home health aide for 3.5 hours per day, Monday through Friday, and 1.5 hours on Saturday. Our home health aide gives Mrs. G. a shower, dresses her in fresh clothing, cooks and serves her breakfast. The aide also does routine homemaking chores: vacuuming, laundry, cleaning the kitchen and bath, stripping and remaking the bed.
In addition to the home health aide, a registered nurse visits Mrs. G. at least once a month to change her catheter, check the integrity of her skin, and ensure that proper procedures are being followed for her personal care, nutrition, and hydration. The nurse communicates with the primary care physician and consults with the state appointed case manager as the need arises.
