We provide a full range of home care services to our kids, including Private Duty Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy.
Private Duty Nursing
Our Private Duty Nurses are either Registered Nurses (RNs) or Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) who provide private duty care working one-on-one with individual clients. Our nurses provide specialized nursing care per physician’s orders, observe and provide ongoing assessment of the client’s clinical status and communicate client needs to the physician, as needed.
You can also count on our nurses to provide medication management and coordination of care with other health care providers.
Our highly trained physical therapists use a variety of techniques and modalities to help clients restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or limit permanent disabilities.
During home visits, working from a treatment plan, our physical therapist will test and measure the client’s strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, posture, muscle performance, respiration and motor function. Our goal is always to help the client be as independent as possible.
Our occupational therapists provide treatment to develop, recover or maintain daily living and work skills for people with physical, mental or cognitive disorders. These professionals focus much of their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence and participation in daily activities.
Our therapists work with infants, toddlers, children and youth and their families to build skills that will enable them to participate in meaningful occupations and life events, including normal growth and development, feeding, play, social skills and education.
Speech therapy is a clinical program aimed at improving speech, language skills, and oral motor abilities. At Daisy Kids Care, our professional speech therapists specialize in the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders. Treatment can begin with infants with injuries due to complications at birth or children with mild, moderate or severe genetic disorders that adversely affect speech, language or cognitive development, including cleft palate, Down syndrome, DiGeorge syndrome, Autism or developmental delays.
For most children with severe communication disorders, one-on-one treatment is essential. The family often plays an important role in reinforcing lessons learned in a therapeutic setting, encouraging the child to use their new skills in conversation.
