In-House Medical Services
Many medical professionals attend Helping Hands Personal Care Homes in all of our communities.
When possible, an in-house Physician or Nurse Practitioner comes to Helping Hands and visits those residents who wish to transfer their care to them. This is a very welcome service to residents with families who live out of town or have busy lives, as there is no need for multiple trips out to see a doctor when there is a concern. It also allows us to be proactive with our residents’ health, as our health professionals visit regularly every 1-2 weeks (or more often if necessary) and see each resident on every visit, rather than residents waiting until they have a bothersome complaint before they seek medical attention. Our in-house medical professionals take the time to get to know each resident, and are knowledgeable, caring, and have excellent bedside manners. We strive for our in-house practitioners to never be in a hurry, and to always have time to discuss their patients’ concerns and care, as well as make friendly conversation.
Our staff can arrange, provide transportation and accompaniment to appointments for your loved one when it isn’t convenient to take them yourself. When neither in-house physician services, nor you, are available, contact us to inquire about Helping Hands Bridging Program.
