Heart Disease and In-Home Senior Care

  1. 1. Heart Disease and In-Home Senior Care
  2. 2. BrightStar understands the challenges of heart disease and have theability to help with activities of daily living and in-home nursing needs tooffer the highest level of comfort and care.
  3. 3. Our nurses have the training,education, and expertise toeffectively treat patients livingwith even the most complexcardiovascular disorders.Seniors, men, women - from every walk oflife live with chronic heart disease, acondition in which it is increasingly difficultfor the heart to pump oxygen-rich bloodthroughout the body.
  4. 4. We know that if they get good medicalcare people with chronic heart diseasefare better at home versus in thehospital. But, Heart Disease and HeartFailure can make it very difficult to stayat home.
  5. 5. The good news is that with the properin-home care this can be accomplished.
  6. 6. We know that hospital stays result inmany seniors not being able to live athome. Hospital stays, even short onescan weaken both the body and the mind.Staying out of the hospital is a keycomponent to staying at home.
  7. 7. If you, a parent or a loved senior havebeen in the hospital the questionbecomes, what type of home care canwe provide to minimize the chance ofa readmission. The answer: BrightStarClinical Pathways.
  8. 8. BrightStar Clinical Pathways is home based and provides a combinationof non-medical and skilled medical care. This care follows a designatedPlan of Care created by an RN and we provide the resources the seniorrequires to be at home, safe stable or improving in condition.
  9. 9. Clinical Pathways is also a time-limited program. This does not meanthat the senior will not need home care for a lengthy period but there isa window after discharge where the risk of poor outcomes, including ofreadmission is highest. The goal of a transitional care program is toprovide both care and education during this window to help ensure thatthe patient is safe and continues on the road to recovery.
  10. 10. Clinical Pathways is evidence-based. It is grounded in research that hasdemonstrated effectiveness. The research has been done in the US andaround the world. Most seniors want to age age at home and thisprogram will maximize their chances of doing this successfully.
  11. 11. BrightStar Clinical Pathways is a condition-specific care program. Thecare and education the patient, family and caregiver need are veryspecific to the condition and current health of the patient.
  12. 12. BrightStar Clinical Pathways is an in-home program, there is no traveloutside the home required for family or the client. As a matter of fact,we can reduce required travel by doing shopping and picking upprescriptions. We can also provide transportation to Doctor’s and otherappointments, including hair and nail appointments. This can greatlyreduce the stress on the senior living at home.
  13. 13. Finally, Clinical Pathways is RNmanaged. The Registered Nursemanages all care and works with therest of the patient’s medical team,including the primary care physicianand specialists to promote the goodcommunication necessary for qualitycare and positive outcomes.
