Home Treatments and Procedures
Receiving treatments or procedures at home provides your loved one with the opportunity to recover in the comfort of his own home.
We understand that it may be difficult to arrange for transport to the clinic and, sometimes, the trip may wear out your love one, especially when they are frail or unwell, worsening their condition. Being warded in the hospitals may risk further deconditioning, reducing the mobility of your loved one.
We have listed some common home treatments and procedures our home nurses provide for your loved one.
