NVNA Works offers private duty nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists to meet clients’ complex medical needs or rehabilitative requirements. Perhaps you’ve been recently discharged from rehab services from a facility or certified homecare agency but you wish to continue receiving physical therapy at home. Our physical therapists can deliver that care through NVNA Works.
NVNA Works has developed services that cater to our clients with special needs, including those with life limiting illnesses, Alzheimer’s and dementia, or care for two people in the same home. Caregivers are specially trained to tailor the type and scope of care needed in these unique circumstances, including hospice trained staff and Alzheimer’s certified staff. NVNA Works also works closely with our sister corporation, NVNA and Hospice to ensure continuity, communication and sensitivity to our clients’ special needs.
NVNA Works offers special programs that can best meet special needs which include:
Assists clients transitioning from their present home to a new home, such as an assisted living community.
Our caregivers meet clients while they are still in their home and spend time with them there getting ready for the move. Once relocated, the caregiver continues to visit in the new setting until the client becomes comfortable with the new surroundings.
Provides care when family can’t be there . . . whether it’s overnight at a loved one’s hospital bedside or day and night during a short-term rehab stay.
Our trained and certified aides can provide the extra companionship and assistance a loved one may need during difficult times in an unfamiliar setting.
