Patients’ Independence at Home
Tri-County Home Care offers specialized care for patients suffering of chronic conditions, such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease. Our patients remain safe and independent at home because we help patients learn to self-manage their chronic conditions and enjoy an improved quality of life.
A Better Quality Of Life
Our trained registered nurses develop a customized care plan with the guidance of the patient’s physician. It includes nursing consultations and the use of advanced equipment. We monitor records daily. Vital signs include blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen, weight and blood glucose levels.
Patient education and counseling are a vital part of this program. Our nurses see to it that patients understand their condition, how to manage medications and the importance of lifestyle factors such as weight, exercise, and nutrition.
ZOE Fluid Status Monitor
As a part of our CHF Program, Tri-County utilizes the ZOE® Fluid Status Monitor. It is a non-invasive, battery powered impedance monitor designed as an ‘early warning’ monitor for determining changes in the fluid status of patients with fluid management problems.
ZOE measurement is a quick and easy method for determining whether individuals are experiencing fluid congestion or dehydration.
