Mercy Home Care: The Home Team Advantage

Home / Mercy Home Care: The Home Team Advantage

Patients cross the threshold of Mercy Hospital and receive excellent care as inpatients or as outpatients—whether for same day surgery, therapeutic treatments or urgent and emergency care.  Mercy’s thoughtful spaces provide a soothing place for compassionate, efficient healthcare to happen. But sometimes, the best place to get well might be in your own home.

 

Enter Mercy’s Home Care Team! Mercy Home Care works with the patient’s provider to create a care plan that delivers medical care and rehabilitation services right in the home.

“We didn’t know home care existed in Moose Lake until we were looking at a Duluth hospital discharge,” said recent home care patient Fred Richardson. “And we sure didn’t know it could be covered by Medicare! But those home care girls knew just how to help us navigate the system, so I didn’t have to go to a nursing home again after a long hospitalization.”

Fred’s wife Cheryl agreed. “I was overwhelmed with how I would care for him, but the home care nurse told me she would work with me until I felt I could do some of the things between her visits. I found out I could do more than I ever thought–and we could be home together.”

Would they recommend Mercy Home Care to others?  “It was a fantastic experience,” said Fred. “We were truly a team.  We had Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, a special wound care nurse and another nurse. Some weeks were busier than others.”

“And they showed concern for me almost as much as for Fred,” said Cheryl.  “They knew that I was a caregiver and they gave me the support I needed to keep going. We’ve been on our own for months now; but we know if we needed home care services again, Mercy would be here for us.”
