Skilled Home Care Solutions
What is Skilled Care? Skilled Care is care that can only be provided by or under the supervision of licensed medical personnel such as a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN). It may also include care from a physical therapist, occupational therapist, or nutritionist. It is distinct from other care provided in the home because it is medical care that might otherwise be provided in a clinic or hospital setting and very often prevents hospitalization or re-admittance. CareAparent skilled professionals perform a variety of duties in the home, using their training, experience, and judgment to deliver specialized, client-centered care.
