Caring for a loved one can feel overwhelming for even the most dedicated caregiver. Thankfully, skilled home care from Envision Health Partners provides St. Louis seniors with the ultimate in professional care right at home and gives family members the respite they need.
As age takes its toll on the physical health of today’s Baby Boomers, its impact on their family members continues to grow. One-third of older adults who live outside the hospital live on their own, and 91 percent of seniors have chronic health conditions. In most cases, their care rests solely on their loved ones’ shoulders since they want their parents and grandparents to remain home as long as they can.
For those in the “sandwich generation,” caring for both kids and parents, it can be incredibly stressful. According to Caregiver.org, caregivers can spend up to 13 hours a month coordinating care, researching medical information, and taking their loved one to appointments. Another 13 days a month is spent on shopping, cleaning, and personal care. Not to mention, the financial impact can be significant.

Senior Home Care Centered On Your Family
A leading skilled home care company for seniors in St. Louis, Envision steps in to help families and the seniors they love. The agency was started by Nicole Phillips, a registered nurse with more than 20 years of experience in the home healthcare field. As an RN, Phillips saw the struggles families faced and helped them find a personalized combination of healthcare solutions to get their loved ones back to where they wanted to be.
Today, Phillips staffs the Envision team with the best therapists, nurses, and aides in the business – caring and compassionate professionals who focus on the injury or illness, but care for the whole person to help them recover faster and prevent the condition from reoccurring. This holistic approach to home care for seniors may include one or all of the following services, depending on the needs of the patient and their family:
Skilled Home Nursing
Working with your senior’s medical team, Envision provides patient teaching for disease management, medication education, administration and teaching of injection medication, and wound treatment.
Skilled Home Therapy
Envision’s licensed and experienced therapists can deliver speech, physical, or occupational therapy at home – or combination of all three – saving seniors and their caregiver from taxing trips to therapists’ offices.
Certified Nurse Assistants
Even when patients no longer need treatment, they may need help with day-to-day tasks. Envision CNA’s can help with personal care, such as bathing, dressing, and grooming, as well as monitor a client’s condition from both a physical and emotional aspect.
