Primary Care for Homebound Frail Elders and Adults with Chronic Diseases
Adults become homebound for a variety of reasons that include chronic illness,
mobility issues, mental health and cognitive disorders. These conditions
can make accessing healthcare in a regular office setting difficult or
House Calls staff provides primary care in the home by family nurse practitioners
in collaboration with our medical director. Our registered nurses, medical
assistants and home health aides are all involved with the care of our
patients. We visit our patients on a routine basis throughout the year
and see patients as often as needed for acute illnesses such as upper
respiratory infections, urinary tract infections and other concerns.
The goal of House Calls is to promote the health, independence, self-esteem
and safety of our patients. We strive to allow seniors to age in place,
prevent emergency room visits and premature placement in a nursing home.
