If you or a loved one has recently been discharged from Rush University Medical Center after a health event or procedure, you may have noticed our Apple logo on the blue discharge bag.
Apple Home Healthcare’s sponsorship of the discharge “Swag Bag” exemplifies our continued support for Rush University Medical Center and our joint commitment to patient care and successful medical outcomes upon discharge.
Many families are not aware of the various options for rehabilitation after a serious health event or procedure. Rehabilitation can take place in a variety of settings. Rehabilitation may be started during your hospital stay, but it continues beyond discharge. Home healthcare can be a great option for patients looking to recover and rehabilitate comfortably in their home setting. You can request this rehabilitation option and the home healthcare provider of your choice from your physician. Be sure to mention Apple Home Healthcare to your physician prior to your discharge. Your physician will put in an order for your home healthcare needs which will provide the continuity of care that will set you up for successful recovery.
Visiting registered nurses, therapists, or other health care workers come to your home up to a few times a week to monitor health, administer injections and medications, provide wound care, strength training and physical therapy exercises. These visits eliminate the burden of scheduled appointments outside of the home that may be difficult to find transportation to and uncomfortable to attend. Apple Home Healthcare’s nurses and therapists work with patients and their family members to provide care at times that are convenient and respectful of our patients’ schedules.
For eligible Medicare beneficiaries, there are no out-of-pocket costs for home healthcare that is ordered by your physician. Many other insurances are also accepted; we will work with your insurance provider to determine your individual coverage. Apple’s home health clinicians demonstrate qualities that make them ideal for serving the unique health care needs of seniors and others, including highly skilled expertise, patience and exceptional compassion.
We look forward to conquering your health with Rush University Medical Center!
