What Are Nursing Care Services?
Simply put, nursing care services relate to the process of nursing itself. Namely, to assess the patient, diagnose their condition, and develop a plan for recovery or general patient care. In the case of Umbrella Home Care’s at-home treatment approach, this simply involves the nurse coming to the patient rather than the other way around.
Here at Umbrella Home Care, we operate on the idea of continuity. Meaning, we employ a consistent and unbroken method of patient care to assist with proper recovery or treatment. This enables a steady progression of improvement to occur over time.
As a result, the patient feels an enhancement in their overall quality of life due to incremental, yet consistent improvements in their condition; and all within the comfort of their own home.
