Advocate Home Health Services, along with its affiliates, Advocate Home Care Products, Inc. and Advocate Hospice, provides a complete range of services, including:
Our team of professionals offers traditional nursing care and patient education in the comfort of your own home. We understand the complexities of illness and the special needs of patients. That is why we use a primary care approach to teach them how to function best at home. Our trained staff of registered nurses; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; medical social workers; and home health aides work with patients to bring them to an optimal level of independence.
Infusion Therapy and Pharmaceuticals
Our infusion-trained nurses administer a wide variety of prescribed therapies with skill and compassion. You'll feel confident receiving antibiotic care, transfusions, chemotherapy, and pain management in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
Home Medical Equipment
Few homes are properly equipped for patient care. So Advocate Home Care Products supplies a full line of medical, convenience and safety equipment for your home. Our staff will deliver and install the equipment, as well as teach patients and families how to use their medical equipment safely.
Our interdisciplinary team of health care professionals, clergy, and volunteers bring compassionate care to those who need it most. We help the individual and their family cope with symptom management, pain control, bereavement, and many issues common to those with a terminal illness.
Home Respiratory Care Services
For those patients with respiratory difficulties, our team of certified and registered respiratory therapists provide a coordinated plan of care to administer our comprehensive range of therapeutic procedures including oxygen aerosol therapy, and sleep programs.
Chronic Disease Management
Many patients with conditions such as heart failure, asthma, obstructive pulmonary disease, wound care, diabetes and cystic fibrosis require ongoing care and education to help them live a fuller life. We offer a range of custom programs related to each of these illnesses.
