Senior with cane

Boca Home Care Services is dedicated to providing personalized home care assistance for seniors who need extra help with daily activities. We refer compassionate and experienced nurses and aides who are dedicated to caring for seniors at home, ensuring our clients can safely maintain their independence and comfort. One such success story is that of Mrs. H.

In June of this year, we received a call from a discharge planner at Boca Raton Community Hospital regarding Mrs. H, a 64-year-old woman living in Century Village. One of our Patient Care Advocates went that day to meet Mrs. H and assess her needs for home care assistance.

Upon meeting Mrs. H, our team member immediately recognized the signs of cognitive impairment and the need for a more comprehensive care plan. Unbeknownst to the hospital discharge planner,  Mrs. H had suffered a stroke six years ago with delayed cognitive effects. She also had diabetes, a seizure disorder, low sodium levels, and a history of falls — none of which had been properly monitored.

To address these concerns, Boca Home Care Services arranged for a live-in aide and appropriate medical equipment for Mrs. H. A pair of talented and devoted home health aides worked together with a registered nurse to coordinate the necessary care. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, and a medical social worker from our sister company visited Mrs. H at home, providing continuous services to ensure her safety and improve her overall well-being.

We also contacted Mrs. H’s daughters, who were unaware of the severity and complexity of their mother’s condition. One daughter immediately planned a visit and met with us to discuss their mother’s present and future care needs.

This case highlights the importance of a comprehensive, team-based approach to home health care and senior services. Boca Home Care Services operates on a social work model, supported by medical professionals, to make a positive difference in the lives of seniors like Mrs. H.

If you or someone you know may be in need of assistance, or if you would simply like to discuss available levels of home senior care, please reach out to our team. We have been helping families care for aging loved ones in South Florida for over 25 years, and whether you live in Palm Beach Gardens or Plantation, in Lantana or Lauderdale by the Sea, we’d love to help you, too.
