“We are thrilled to support the University of Louisville Hospital – Comprehensive Stroke Center’s U Care program with our RN-led clinical AfterCare model. Patients and their caregivers need more resources and ongoing support when managing the transition from a hospitalization to another setting or home. We look forward to implementing this model and future programs to help UofL Hospital provide a differentiated patient experience for the communities it serves,” said Dr. Brian Holzer, CEO of Lacuna Health.
Medication reminders, disorientation assistance, and personal care services such as toileting, bathing, and entering and exiting beds and other places of rest are included in our home health care services at all times of the day or night. If a client wakes suddenly and is completely disoriented, our care aides are trained to calm your loved one and help him or her back to rest.
If your loved one needs medical care that requires medical expertise, you'll need a home health agency to find a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), or advanced practical nurse (APN). Nurses have the skills necessary to change catheters, give postsurgical care, treat wounds or bedsores, and oversee medical equipment. If your loved one is recovering from surgery or an accident, a home health care nurse may be covered by Medicare or other insurance; nurses usually charge $25-$50/hour.
A stroke, also called a brain attack, occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted. This disruption is caused when either a blood clot block one of the vital blood vessels in the brain (ischemic stroke), or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling blood into surrounding tissues (hemorrhagic stroke). The brain needs a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients in order to function and its cells begin to die after just a few minutes without either.
We support NHS Trusts and private sector organisations by placing nurses, midwives, doctors, allied health professionals, health scientists and social workers into temporary, permanent and contract roles.
