A project of MADELIA COMMUNITY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
During this Holiday Season consider a donation to the Madelia Community Hospital Home Care Department.
The dedicated and caring staff of the Madelia Community Hospital Home Care Department continues to provide services in the home to patients in Madelia and surrounding areas. This year they are asking that we purchase a Bariatric scale to get accurate weights for our more obese patients. They also requested that their clients are provided commodes and shower chairs so we can keep them home longer. Won't you please consider a Holiday Gift for our Home Care clients?
Home Care Services range from professional nursing care and physician ordered therapies to personal care and light housekeeping. All home care services are provided under the direction of the client's physician. The home health team works to promote, maintain or restore the client's health. The goal is to minimize the effects of illness and disability allowing the client to remain in the home setting. Patient/family education and coordination of medical care is an essential portion to the success of a client remaining in the home. Payment for home care services varies depending on client condition and qualifications. Payment for services may be provided by Medicare, Medicaid, Waivered Services with the surrounding counties, Private Insurance, Veteran’s Administration, Long Term Care Insurance, or private payment. Home care is available seven days per week and does provide 24 hour "on call" services to their clients. To inquire regarding home care services, please contact the Home Care Department at Madelia Community Hospital or discuss services with your physician or nursing staff.
