  • Geriatric Assessment/Evaluation

    Home health is a very important service for many elderly, sick and disabled people who need medical care in their homes. A physician will initially request that a home health agency go out and do an evaluation with a patient. This assessment can be done by a registered nurse, physical therapist or speech therapist. A home health patient must be home bound by Medicare rules. However, some private insurances and Medicaid do not require or enforce this rule. Home health is not considered a long-term service.

  • Pain Management

    The Pain Management Program

    Pain is a complex, subjective, and unpleasant sensation that is very common with the elderly. Chronic pain can lead to social isolation, depression, polypharmacy, decreased functional status, and deconditioning.

    As such, pain management is a critical aspect of geriatric care. The elderly are generally at increased risk of adverse effects from drug interactions due to the use of analgesics and other pain killing medications. As a result non-drug treatments that reduce pain are of particular importance. Patient and caregiver education and active patient/caregiver involvement can help reduce pain and improve quality of life of the patient.

  • Colostomy/Ostomy Care

    A colostomy is an opening in the belly (abdominal wall) that is made during surgery. The end of the colon is brought through this opening to form a stoma. Where the stoma will be on the abdomen depends on which part of the colon is used to make it. The enterostomal therapy nurse (ET nurse) or the surgeon will figure out the best location for your stoma.

    Colostomy surgery is done for many different diseases and problems. Some colostomies are done because of malignancy (cancer), others are not. Sometimes a colostomy is only needed for a short time, sometimes it is life-long. Some colostomies are large, some small; some are on the left side of the abdomen, some are on the right side, others may be in the middle.

    A colostomy is not a disease, but a change in the way your body works. It surgically changes normal body function to allow stool to pass after a disease or injury. Although a colostomy is a big change for the patient, the operation itself is rather simple. The body’s chemistry and digestive function are not changed by having a colostomy.

    Medical advances and new technology are making colostomy care easier and more convenient than ever before. An ostomy procedure like a colostomy will usually require a major adjustment to your activities of daily living. Whether for a short time or the rest of your life, you can cope with your daily routines with help, support, and education from your friends at Agave Home Health. You can count on the experienced staff at Agave Home Health to provide with the care and education you need to live as independently as possible despite the inconveniences.
