Nonprofit health care organization Gulfside Healthcare Services is proud to announce the recent launch of its skilled home health services program, Gulfside Home Health, which is now accepting patients. Gulfside Home Health offers services that provide quality care and independence for the patient, and assistance for the caregiver. The skilled home health services available through the program encourage patients and their loved ones to navigate the healing process side by side in the comfort of their own home. Currently offered in Pasco and Pinellas counties, Gulfside Home Health facilitates a safe, healthy, and relaxed healing experience following an injury, surgery or illness.

Patients receive care and services from a team of skilled health care professionals, including registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, wound-care specialists and more. This expert team understands each patient’s medical history and specific recovery goals. Customized home-treatment plans enable optimal recovery time and maximum independence through rehabilitation and assistance with daily care. Gulfside Home Health’s services also include medication management, illness monitoring and nurse assessment at each visit to monitor and track each patient’s overall progress.

According to a recent study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, “an extra minute relative to the average length of a patient’s home health visits reduces their (hospital) readmission likelihood by approximately 8%.” With less time spent in the hospital and a decreased readmission risk, skilled home health services become a more affordable, effective and comfortable treatment option. Gulfside Home Health provides complete support, and relief from the symptoms and stress endured during serious illness and toward the end of a person’s life.

Instead of focusing on the illness objectively, Gulfside’s approach involves seeing each person as a whole. “Patients now have a choice in the care they receive,” said Linda Ward, president and CEO of Gulfside Healthcare Services. In order to receive skilled home health services, your primary care physician can easily refer you to Gulfside Home Health for an evaluation. Gulfside’s team can meet with you at the hospital to prepare you for your return home and to begin receiving the services.
