Choosing the right care

The decision to receive home care is a personal one and at times can be overwhelming.  Ability Nursing thrives to improve the quality of life for our patients.  Our approach is to fulfill each individual’s needs and ensure peace of mind by referring the most qualified and compassionate caregivers.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care :

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be very challenging, stressful and time consuming.  Many individuals living with this condition require 24 hour care for safety reasons due to unusual sleep patterns and the necessity for assistance with all activities of daily living.  Ability Nursing has the capability to refer highly knowledgeable and qualified caregivers that are well equipped to manage the day to day needs of an individual that has Alzheimer’s or dementia.  This can prove to be such a valuable resource and bring ease to daily life.

Stroke Care :

If you or a loved one has recently suffered a stroke, the decision to determine how much care is necessary can be a very overwhelming task.  Is the former living situation still possible or will additional care need to be arranged?  Coming to the right conclusion can be quite involved and stressful.  One of the most frustrating aspects of a stroke is that there is no set formula or timeline for recovery and unfortunately means coming to term with this uncertainty.  For this reason, Ability Nursing refers specific qualified caregivers which are knowledgeable and have valuable hands on experience in working with and caring for individuals that have suffered a stroke. 

Diabetes Care :

Diabetes increases the risk for many serious health problems. Fortunately, with the correct treatment and proper lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of more severe complications.  The caregivers Ability Nursing refers specialize in assisting patients to monitor blood sugar and taking prescribed medications to help regulate levels.  Caregivers will also help to prepare health conscious meals and assist with regular exercise routines, both of which are vital for people living with diabetes. 

COPD Care :

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) refers to a group of lung diseases that restrict airflow and make breathing difficult.

Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the two most common conditions that make up COPD. Chronic bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which allows air to travel to and from your lungs. Emphysema occurs when the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs are gradually destroyed.  Unfortunately there is no cure for either of these conditions, however there are effective treatments that can help to alleviate symptoms, decrease the risk of complications and improve overall quality of life.  Ability Nursing refers caregivers that are experienced in managing symptoms and ensuring a safe environment for you or a loved one that may suffer from COPD or emphysema. 

Parkinson’s Disease Care :

If you or someone you know has Parkinson’s disease (PD) you are not alone. In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of PD are diagnosed each year, adding to the 1 million people who currently live with PD.  At Ability Nursing we refer skilled and compassionate caregivers that can help alleviate the pain and stress of managing the unpredictable and commons symptoms of Parkinson’s.  Along with supervision and home safety, referred caregivers will assist with daily mobility and are sensitive to the slowed pace associated with this condition. 

ALS Care :

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.  Although the cause of ALS is not completely understood, in the recent years studies brought a wealth of new scientific understanding regarding the physiology of this disease.  If you or a loved one suffers from this debilitating condition, Ability Nursing will refer a caregiver that understands the daily challenges of living with ALS and will offer the highest level of comfort while meeting specific needs.
