Home health care has seen no significant advancements in recent time, Bowes In Home Care is changing that. We have taken a fresh and modern approach to home health care, using new technologies and techniques.
THE FIRST 48 program is designed to provide the highest level of care to keep those with complex medical conditions at home. From our experience within the Chicago region, Bowes believes the start of a successful program begins with a safe transition from the hospital to the home. Our strong clinical team has designed an assessment tool to layout the foundation for individualized interventions patients will receive immediately upon discharge. Our Transitional Care Team of nurses, therapists, social workers, and CNAs provides comprehensive treatment of the mind, body, and environment to prevent or resolve risk factors associated with re-hospitalizations.
In order to know and understand all of the dynamics in the home environment the time needed far exceeds that of the Nursing and Therapist Evaluations. This is where Bowes has stepped outside of the box in order to provide the time within the home to detect the issues that usually go unresolved.
Our home care staff coordinates information and care, assists patient and caregivers with direct problem solving, and provides patient centered support to address issues, barriers and challenges to achieve a stabilized home environment. Our diverse clinical team, with a wide array of specializations, has created specific diagnosis-specific self care kits which include the necessary tools to assist the patient and caregivers in disease management and control.
By combining thorough assessment and treatment, while stabilizing the home environment and emphasizing self-management of the disease process, Bowes is confident that our reputation established in the suburbs will also exceed expectations in the Chicagoland area.
