Perhaps you have an aging parent who needs some help in order to stay at home and take care of themselves. Or maybe it’s your partner, and you want to keep them with you, but you need help. Or maybe it’s you. There are so many choices to make, and it’s stressful. How do you even know where to start?
One call to FirstLantic Healthcare can help, and the person to call is Patient Care Coordinator Nicole Wetzel. Nicole, a long-time Hollywood resident, has been in the home health care business for 24 years and worked with FirstLantic since opening in 2000.
At FirstLantic, the patient is offered the choice of agency or registry for hourly and live-in home care. Caregivers are carefully hired with rigorous background checks. Private pay and long-term care insurance are accepted. In-house specialist is available to verify all insurance policies.
In addition, FirstLantic offers assistance to veterans with the application process to find out if they are eligible for the Veterans Administration’s Aide & Attendance program. They also offer Professional Care Management which covers comprehensive care including healthcare, supportive counseling, client advocacy, and budget preparation. And, when it comes time to move out of the home and into a senior living community, FirstLantic is available to help with a free placement service.
“We collaborate with a network of ancillary services such as therapy, nursing, house call physicians, and DME (Durable Medical Equipment such as oxygen, hospital beds, bedside commodes, walkers, etc) in order to deliver a full continuum of care. There are so many different options, and it can be overwhelming,” said Nicole. “Our goal is to create a safe, home environment that provides peace-of-mind for the patient and family.”
The company’s philosophy is, “Everyone deserves the opportunity to live within the comfort of their own home while maintaining independence and quality of life.”
Everyone at FirstLantic works diligently to deliver on that promise every day.
