November is designated as a month to celebrate long-term home nursing care. Ann Aksamit of the Home Care and Hospice Department of Sheridan Memorial Hospital joined Public Pulse host, Kim Love, to explain some of the benefits of long-term home care.
Aksamit said candidates for home care require skilled nursing care, but not necessarily full-time hospitalization. Cindy Baker specializes in hospice care, which, she explains is about both the patient and the family.
The SMH Home Care and Hospice Department is hosting an open house at their new facility at 1095 Sugarview Drive next week. Stay tuned to Sheridan Media News for more details about that event.
