More information about West Helena and Phillips County:
Located in the SE region of Arkansas, our team in the West Helena office cares for patients all across Phillips County, providing these services:
- Our Home Health service makes it possible for persons recovering from a major health incident to recover at home instead of the hospital. The service includes physician-ordered nursing care, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, home health aide and social work services, and is certified for quality by Medicare.
- Our Hospice service is a special, caring service provided for patients who have a limited life expectancy. Nurses, medical directors, social workers, aides, ministers and volunteers all make up the team that provide care and support to patients and their families.
- Our Personal Care service makes it possible for frail persons to remain at home, rather than enter a nursing home. Under physician orders, our registered nurse oversees the patient care plan and supervises care. Our certified Personal Care Aides assist patients with activities of daily living. Assistance may include bathing, grooming, mobility assistance, meal planning and preparation, and help with maintaining the patient area.
- Our Mother-Infant Services are designed especially for expectant and new mothers. We try to improve the health of both the mother and the baby. Our service includes physician-ordered nursing and social work services in the home, both during the pregnancy and after mother gives birth.
- Our Nurse-Family Partnership Service is a special, caring service provided for first-time mothers and their babies. This service is extensive, and continues until the baby is two years old. The service not only improves the health of the baby, but also has been shown to dramatically improve the child's readiness for school in later years, and a variety of other benefits. The NFP program is staffed by Community Health Nurses (RN's) who visit the family regularly, to help the with issues that affect the infant's and the family's overall health.
- Our Service Coordination (also called Targeted Case Management) helps put all the pieces together for our community members who need multiple services in order to remain at home. Our Service Coordinator works with the patient, physician and family to help identify needs and find resources to promote independent living at home for as long as possible.
