Home care agencies offer skilled services such as: nursing care, physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapy as well as social services and hospice care. Typically most home care agencies simply focus on their licensed employees providing those services. At times it is easy to forget how emotional and stressful this time can be for family members as well as patients.
Bluebonnet recognized this and began offering the services of a” patient advocate.” The job of a patient advocate is to listen to the concerns of the patients and their families. Every request or concern a family member has is approached with compassion and respect. Questions about any services are always welcome. The “patient advocate” is always available and ready to go that extra step to ensure a level of care that is second to none. Bluebonnet feels patient advocacy is on the cutting edge of the home care industry and urges all other agencies to follow our lead. We feel this is critical to showing our commitment to our seniors and their families.
We at Bluebonnet hope the next experience any of you encounter with a home care agency includes the services of a patient advocate. We feel the addition of a patient advocate will help take away some of the stress that all patients and family members feel at some point. It is Bluebonnet's way of saying thank you for the opportunity to provide quality care and comfort to all seniors and their families.
