PRIVATE SKILLED CARE

Private skilled care differs from skilled nursing care in that it is advanced level of nursing care provided continuously to medically–complex patients that offers our patients the level of care they need where they want it; not in a nursing facility or hospital, but in the comfort and safety of home.

If a patient needs help with ongoing clinical needs due to acute or chronic illness, injury or disability, our care team works closely with the medical team and family to provide this level of specialized care.

Our care regimen:

  • Assesses, provides, and monitors patients who require frequent adjustments to treatment regimens, and patients with medical conditions that require recurrent assessments and care plan changes.
  • Protects, manages and optimizes the health and outcome of the patient — generally with complex health issues — and well-being over time, mitigates the decline in quality of life and addresses adverse or preventable health triggers
  • Often involves complex advanced nursing care to prevent medical complications that may result in facility placement.
  • Offers companionship to calm agitation and anxiety, monitor safety to reduce risks of falls
  • Attends to daily needs and offers compassionate companionship.
  • Provides families much-needed peace of mind with quality care that mitigates the decline in quality of life and restores some independence.

Hourly Care
Skilled one-on-one care tailored to assist patients to facilitate recovery or comfort at home rather than being placed at a care facility.  Hourly care services helps patients maintain their daily routines and their independence.

Hourly care may be helpful for those demonstrating some memory loss, forgetfulness and confusion (time lapse, bill payments, mail piling up, etc.);  those needing help with balance or having trouble getting to the bathroom in time; and those with a general decline in mobility.

Live-In Care
With live-in care, our patient can remain as independent as possible for as long as possible with a caregiver in their home twenty-four hours a day. Caregivers provide supervision, develop a deep understanding of care needs, and can create a real relationship with the patients they assist. This type of care is also helpful for patients who need palliative care for extra support, comfort, and engagement while living with a long-term condition.

24-Hour Care
We provide 24-hour care that allows adults or seniors to remain at home while receiving the clinical and personal care assistance. This level of service encompasses patients that need in-home monitoring, those who require adjustments to treatment regimens often, and patients with medical conditions that require frequent assessments and care plan changes.

Round-the-clock care typically involves four to five caregivers who work eight- or twelve-hour shifts, are awake at all times, and provide supervision at all hours.

Clinical CARE

Transitioning from a hospital/rehab with a physical disability, or chronic condition.

Patients needing additional support or continuous assistance during day, at night, or round-the-clock.

Administering medication including injections, inhalants, eye drops, oral, and topical medications.

Tracking oxygen levels, using heart monitors, or other advanced in-home equipment.

No matter what the situation is, Tri-County Home Care of Florida can provide dedicated caregivers to at home with any additional household tasks every day.

When your loved one needs additional support during the day, at night, or around the clock, that shouldn’t mean he or she needs to leave home for an assisted living facility or nursing home.

Our priority is to provide the highest level of care to our patients and peace of mind to their family.

Continuous skilled nursing is generally from 4-24  hours a day for adults and seniors with complex medical issues and for medically-fragile children (Broward county only) from birth to 21 years of age. 

Advanced nursing care provided by RNs or LPNs, and supported by home health aides and caregivers.
