CHF (Congestive Heart Failure)
More than three million Americans have congestive heart failure, and as the population ages the incidence of congestive heart failure is rising rapidly. Our program helps to keep the patient out of the hospital and decrease rehospitalization.
Some wounds are deep and need medical attention to prevent infection and loss of function, due to damage to underlying structures like bone, muscle, tendon, arteries and nerves. The purpose of medical care for wounds is to prevent complications and preserve function.
Diabetic patients have special dietary and exercise concerns that cause bigger problems if neglected. Education must be intertwined with medical treatment. Our team helps to develop and monitor a diabetic teaching plan.
COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
Prevent further deterioration in lung function, alleviate symptoms and improve performance of daily activities and quality of life. Chronic obstruction of the flow of air through the airways and out of the lungs, generally is permanent and may be progressive over time. Delmar Gardens Home Care helps to develop and maintain a care plan.
A Proud Member of the Missouri Homecare Alliance.
Kristina was an exceptional nurse. She is very caring, but still professional.
Everyone was friendly and gave me excellent care. I would recommend Delmar to everyone I know!
Lada, Carolyn and Casey were all wonderful.
Attention Home Care Director,
I want you to know how much my home care girls helped me. I am so much improved. My balance is very good. My use of legs and arms are so much improved.
I especially want to say thanks to Thalia for taking such care of me. She has taught me to continue to use these exercises regularly. I will!
Thalia has been so encouraging and patient. I was so impressed when Thalia printed up a gluten free diet book for me. This has really helped me so much.
PS – If ever I should need home care at another time, I would very much want Thalia to work with me.
