4 Things You May Not Know About OnPointe at Home
There are many home health care options available for physicians and their patients. Many offer a similar guarantee of compassionate care from their employees, but what OnPointe At Home offers is a unique experience for patients and their families that far exceeds the standards set by competitors in the industry. From a long history of healthcare experience to an extensive network of health care services to an intimate knowledge of our patients and support for them throughout their journey, here is an in-depth look at four things you may not know about OnPointe At Home that makes them a distinguished choice for home health care:
5 Generations of Caring | OnPointe is a family-owned and operated business that has been in existence for five generations as a company committed to providing exceptional, patient-focused medical care and support services. We began as a small, home health care company, but with over 100 years of experience and an intimate knowledge of the patient’s journey, we grew our menu of services to become a full network of healthcare, ultimately delivering a complete continuum of care for our patients.
Multiple Levels of Service | As part of an extensive network of services, OnPointe At Home is equipped to provide multiple levels of service to our patients. Where other agencies only offer a limited list of services, we help bridge the gap that often exists as patients transition from one acute care facility to another, or to their home. We provide hospice, including pain and symptom management, 24-hour on-call nurses and physicians, emotional support and more. Our home health services include skilled nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapies as well as home health aides. Personal care services may include help with daily tasks, mobility, personal hygiene and more.
Transitional Care | OnPointe At Home nurses are trained to follow each patient's progress from the moment of intake, ensuring that the patients are in the most appropriate and compassionate hands along the entirety of their journey, especially as their needs change.
CST Device | Because our healthcare professionals are not there for every second of the day, every OnPointe At Home patient is offered a Critical Signal Technology (CST) Device to connect him or her to the outside world. This 3-way calling system is available 24/7 to translate a call, remind patients about taking medications or help them call out to loved ones in an emergency. This alone can prevent more serious injuries by quickly enlisting the help a patient may need.
With so many options of home health care in the market, OnPointe alleviates some of the stress of making that decision, as it sets itself apart with a deep knowledge of the industry and a complete continuum of care for its patients. Contact us today to learn if our team is right for your patient.
