Planning for home care

Issues Related to Home Care Planning

While the process for in home pediatric care should be seamless, there are some issues that should be highlighted for families. These issues are not typical, but should be reviewed to make the transition as easy as possible for everyone involved. The Vancouver Home Health Care Agency can help with any further questions beyond these basic pointers.

Establishing Partnerships
Partnerships must be established through evaluations of the community, child, home and family. These partnerships will help not only the child, but the family cope with the illness. Partnerships in illnesses include communication with medical professionals, however, other partnerships that must be structured include, but are not limited to, activities for the child, partnerships with educational professionals for schooling, centers which offer services to help the family transition through every stage, and partnerships with churches for spiritual guidance.

Ensuring Adequate Training
While it may seem impossible, there are some agencies which do not provide ongoing training for their professionals. At Vancouver Home Health Care Agency, ongoing education is essential to every professional. Making sure the professionals have ongoing training is important; one time training does not ensure that the professional is up to date on the latest research. Pediatric in home care is continuously working from research; any professional who is not continuously educated is not abreast of the best methods of care.

Assisting in Selection of Home Health Care Agency
A pediatrician might help with the selection of a home health Care agency, but sometimes a family must find an agency alone. If this is the case, the aforementioned connections with the community are a great place to start. The Vancouver Home Health Care Agency is also another great place to get questions answered and find more information on the full process of pediatric in home care.

Opening Communication with Local School Districts
The local school district must be aware of the child’s situation so an IEP, or individualized education plan, can be devised. As the child ages, the school must become involved in the care plan, especially if the child is home-schooled. The school will ask for meetings and plans for the child, as it is their job to ensure every child is educated. It is the law for all parents to make sure children attend some sort of schooling, and checking in with the school district is the easiest way to make sure all laws are followed.

The Vancouver Home Health Care Agency can answer any further questions regarding any issues that may arise during the transition between hospitalized and in-home care.
