    Services Available

Nursing - Our registered nurses provide comprehensive assessments of a patient's needs and work with the patient's physician to develop a plan of care to be provided by a nurse or other health professionals. Our nurses regularly reassess the patient's condition and communicate with the physician to update the plan of care as needed. Nurses offer health education and guidance to the individual patient and his/her family.
Home Health Care Services

Physical Therapy - The Physical Therapist provides an evaluation of the patient's medical condition and establishes a plan of care with the physician. The expectation is that the patient's functional status will improve under care.
Occupational Therapy - The Occupational Therapist evaluates for restoring physical function, provides motor and tactile activities to increase sensory output and cognitive function. The occupational therapist provides instruction on activities and suggests equipment to improve independence with activities of daily living, vocational assessment and training.

All of our caregivers deliver high-quality, comprehensive healthcare services in clients' homes while promoting comfort, well-being and the continued health of Schoharie County. We have continuing education programs to keep our staff up-to-date on the latest medical skills and techniques. We survey clients in an ongoing effort to evaluate and improve our services.

Home Health Aide Services - Under the supervision of a registered nurse, the Home Health Aide provides assistance with personal hygiene, dressing, grooming, exercises, transfers and ambulation, and other related supportive tasks to a patient with health care needs at home.

PRI Evaluations - Our registered nurses conduct "Patient Review Instrument" (PRI) assessments. A PRI assessment is mandated by law before any senior can enter a skilled a nursing facility. PRI's are used to determine the level of care and the type of facility required.
