We can provide respite care so you can take a break knowing your loved one is being care for by a qualified caregiver. This care is often used by families who are the primary caregivers and either need some time to handle personal business, go on a trip or have become ill themselves. Respite care services are available by the hour.

Coordinated Care for Hospice Patients

Hospice and St. Joseph Home Health work together to provide care to the terminally ill. Our clinical staff will provide comfort and peace of mind to hospice patients and their families with assistance with bathing, personal hygiene, medications and personal care services.

St. Joseph Home Health professional nursing services also offer the following specialty Geriatric Care Services.

Individual Assessment Solutions

There are times when family members, trust officers, or Power of Attorneys (POA) are in a position to make choices on someone else's behalf. Facing the challenges of determining the physical or cognitive well being of someone is a difficult thing for anyone to do. That is where an objective Individual Assessment Solution can be a helpful tool.

St.Joseph Home Health can help. With appropriate permission and a thorough client assessment, a Registered Nurse will be able to provide a clear, objective picture of the assessed individual's physical and cognitive status in an easy to read report. In addition, our professional staff will be able to include an assessment of safety issues.

With a clear and objective picture in hand, making difficult choices for someone you care for are certain to be the right choices.

Family Caregiver Support Initiative

We do not want to forget the ever-important role of the Caregiver. In the state of Kansas, through an agreement with the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging, St. Joseph Home Health will have a Registered Nurse come to your home and assess your specific care giving situation. Things that will be discussed can include:

  • the needs of the person being cared for
  • your knowledge, skill, stresses and limitations
  • others who assist with care giving
  • how a caregiver plan can help support your care giving role

Based on the assessment, the nurse will work with you to develop a plan. The plan may include:

  • ways to perform care giving tasks
  • educational materials that might apply
  • referrals to additional resources, support groups, etc.
  • tips on balancing your personal life with care giving duties
