Any parent would want to be there twenty-four hours a day, caring for their child with complex and chronic health conditions. Usually, long-term care is needed to help the child recover or learn activities of daily living to increase their chances of autonomy and independence.
If getting full-time healthcare professionals in Texas to take care of your child is not possible, you become their primary caregiver. However, this is difficult to achieve and balance for parents, especially if you need to work to support your child’s medication and treatment.
Although getting help for home health care in Houston, Texas doesn’t seem like a viable idea, at St. Agnes Healthcare Professionals, Inc., we understand this struggle of parents. We offer skilled nursing visits and respite care services to assist and relieve you in caring for your sick child.
Skilled nursing visits provide medical services in a familiar environment for the patient. Our registered nurse or licensed vocational nurse can assist you for 2 to 3 hours in medication management, wound care, and IV therapy for your child.
If you are your child’s full-time primary caregiver, you too need to take a break and rest. We also offer respite nursing to relieve you from your duties when you’re already at the brink of stress. You can take that much needed and deserved vacation with your mind and heart at ease, knowing that your child is in good hands.
