We believe that the approach of our experienced psychiatric nurses who provide home health care is unique based on their specialized training and years of experience. They are prepared and well-qualified to be an instrumental support to physicians and mental health professionals helping clients in the community achieve a higher level of wellness and stability to reach a shared goal of reduced hospitalization.
Our team of professionals includes the following individuals who are available to evaluate individuals in their homes to determine how a care plan including the home health team may improve outcomes for individuals challenged by behavioral health issues. Clients who receive care by these nurses benefit greatly from a plan of care that is rooted in client advocacy and tailored to their individual needs and optimal level of independence.
