AccentCare, a national leader and trusted guide in post-acute health care services, and Memorial Hermann Health System, a non-profit, community-focused, award-winning health system committed to creating healthier Houston communities, are pleased to announce the creation of a new joint venture that will greatly expand access to care in the home throughout the Greater Houston area.
This partnership will enhance care and service quality for all patients, families, and providers in the Greater Houston area by reimagining the home-based care system. Patients and families trust Memorial Hermann when they have a serious health episode that requires hospital care, and this joint venture will bring that same trusted health care source into their homes as their needs change over time.
When you or your loved one is in need of skilled nursing services, which may include wound care or medication management, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy or social work, Memorial Hermann Home Health can provide the care you need in the comfort of your own home.
Our competent, compassionate team of nurses and therapists helps you maintain your independence in your own home. They teach you or family members how to safely do the things needed to manage your medical condition at home, such as correctly take your medications, care for your wounds or other complex nursing needs. Our full-service respiratory care program includes oxygen services as well as CPAP and BiPAP. Through these services, we relieve families from having to do medical management and clinical caregiving, so they can spend more quality time together.
Our wide array of skilled nursing services include:
For homebound patients, a home health occupational therapist can help a patient regain the ability to perform active daily living functions after an injury or illness. Occupational therapy may be provided as a home health service in conjunction with other skilled disciplines like physical therapy, skilled nursing or speech therapy. Or, it may continue as a stand-alone service after a patient has been discharged from all other home health care.
When a patient is recovering from an injury or illness, a physical therapist can develop a plan of care to help a patient restore daily functional abilities as well as regain or strengthen use of their muscles and joints.
Communication is important for maintaining a good quality of life. When an injury or illness affects the ability to speak clearly and effectively, a speech therapist can help a patient regain the ability to communicate clearly.
