For some people, homecare is just another job.
You won’t find any of those people around here.
For the nurses and home health aides, therapists and home health care professionals
who make up team Medex, caring is a lot more than a job…
Caring our calling. It’s our defining purpose. It’s what comes naturally to us.
We love what we do. Not one of us here could imagine doing anything else.
And it is the reason we chose to be a part of the Medex team.
It’s been said that you can learn a lot about an organization by knowing the philosophy that drives it.
Over the past 35 years, Medex has earned a reputation for quality.
Our goal as caregivers is a simple one…
To help those we care for maintain their freedom, independence and personal choice— regardless of their physical limitations or illness.
We believe no one should ever have to give up their ability to control their own destiny simply because they have fallen ill.
Helping those we care for to live life to the fullest on their own terms is what we do best.
Maybe that’s why when we need help caring for our own friends and families,
we call Medex, too.
We’re so glad you found us. We’ve been waiting 35 years to serve you.
IN HOME REHABILITATION
Recuperating from an injury or a stroke is best done at home, where the surroundings are familiar, the patient is more at ease and the risk of institution borne infection is eliminated. Medex’s specially trained, certified home health aides are there to carry out the daily routine restorative instructions of the Licensed Physical Therapist. There’s no longer a need to risk common complications like infection or institutional delirium. We’ll help you get better at home.
SHOPPING AND ERRAND SERVICES
Mom’s out of milk, again! Did anyone remember to pick up dad’s prescription from the drug store? Who’s going to take mom to the doctor on Tuesday morning? Relax… we’ve got ya covered. Today’s homecare is about more than helping mom and dad bathe and dress. It’s about making your life simpler…taking the pressure off and helping you get back to a normal life. And that’s what we do best. Our care team will work out all the details and get it all gone…so you don’t have to.
Don’t let any smooth-talking celebrity spokesperson fool you… There already is “a place for mom”– it’s right in her own home. Given the choice, nobody wants to leave home to go to a nursing home or assisted living facility. We wouldn’t. Mom and Dad sure as heck don’t want to either. With today’s technological advances, mom and dad can remain safe and independent in their own home, regardless of physical limitations. It’s what they really want, and what we, as children of aging parents want for them, too. We can help you. We’re experts. We’ve been at it for over 35 years.
Nobody there to lay out medications? No Problem. Our care management team and visiting RNs work with your pharmacist and doctor to develop a safe and cost effective solution to ensure your loved one gets the right medication at the right time. Taking the burden off you and your family. It’s just another way Medex is separate from the rest.
SR. GERONTOLOGIST ON STAFF
A gerontologist is a degreed healthcare professional who studies the science of aging and aging problems. Ours is Nationally recognized eldercare expert Diane Berardi— host of the national radio show and syndicated podcast Parents Are Hard to Raise. Diane personally evaluates and oversees the care plan of every Medex client to ensure their social, cultural, psychological, cognitive, and biological aspects of aging concerns are met.
Need a higher level of care? We’ve got you covered. Under the direction of our Director of Nurses, Medex Registered Nurses supervise care of all our clients on a regular basis. They are also available to do dressing changes, administer injections and IV medications and carry out specialized nursing procedures as ordered by your doctor.
Imagine a friend who you can trust to check in on mom and dad when you can’t be there. Someone who can prepare a meal, make sure dad is taking his blood pressure medicine, take mom to the doctor and run errands. Now imagine that same friend also knows how to…
There are times when more than just a few hours of care are needed. Sometimes just for a few days…so the family caregiver can get a break, attend a wedding or take a vacation. Most times Live-In care is the perfect long-term solution for all concerned.
