Congestive Heart Failure/Heart Health Education
Heart health is a major concern for our region, most significantly Congestive
Heart Failure (CHF). Our clinical teams use the latest most effective
evidence-based methods to care for cardiac patients. Working closely with
the patient, their physician and family, each clinician directs a personalized
plan of care designed with the individual in mind to both treat and educate
the patient and family to manage their cardiac issues.
CHF readmission rate: Readmission into the hospital is a major concern for CHF patients. The
Home Health Center of Thibodaux Regional has one of the lowest hospital
readmission rates in the region for CHF patients.
Managed and supervised by a Certified Wound Care Specialist, the Home Health
Center of Thibodaux Regional can care for the most complex wounds. With
years of experience, the clinical staff administers the highest quality,
most advanced wound care available.
Medication compliance and management is an integral part of any patient’s
path to recovery and future health. And education is a key component to
its success. Registered Nurses educate the patients on their individual
medications, including dosage, side effects, and potential adverse interactions
with other medications along with the safe management of their medication regimen.
Specialty Orthopedic Program
With the increased advancements in orthopedic procedures, total knee and
hip replacements are more prevalent than ever. The Orthopedic Program
(OP) is a home-based rehabilitation program designed to educate the patient
and treat them using a proven, comprehensive therapy program after surgery.
The physical-therapy driven OP has been extremely successful over the
years in getting our patients back to their active, independent life both
quickly and safely.
Fall Prevention/Balance Improvement
Independence and safety go hand-in-hand in the home. Whether an elderly
patient or a younger individual who may be struggling with balance issues,
fall prevention, and balance improvement are the keys to staying independent.
Our physical therapists and other clinicians work closely with patients
to ensure safe, confident ambulation and transfers. Both patients and
caregivers are trained in correct ambulation, balance and transferring,
and maintaining a safe home environment.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) can range from an agitating
cough to difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. Through proper treatment
and disease management, patients can take control of this disease and
not have their lives defined by it. In partnership with their physician,
a specialized plan of care will be developed and implemented to give the
patient the clinical care and the tools they need to manage COPD. Manage
it both for the short-term and to provide them with the knowledge to maintain
a productive, full life with COPD.
Pneumonia can be a serious concern if you're 65 or older or have a
chronic illness or weakened immune system. It can range in severity from
mild to life-threatening. Quick treatment by your physician and appropriate
follow-up and monitoring in the home setting can drastically reduce the
risk of complications and worsening of pneumonia. Registered Nurses will
closely monitor your condition in your home and report back to your physician
any abnormalities or conditions that are present to allow for the disease
to worsen. Consistent care is the key to complete, successful recovery.
Diabetes is a common disease, yet individuals need unique care. Learning
as much as possible about the latest medical therapies and approaches,
as well as making healthy lifestyle choices, will greatly assist the patient
and their families in dealing with Diabetes. Good communication with a
team of experts can help you feel in control and respond to changing needs.
