Helping You Stay In Your Home - Northfield Home Care
There truly is no place like home, and at Northfield Home Care, we want to help you enjoy your home as long as possible. Northfield Home Care, a service of Northfield Hospital & Clinics, provides skilled nursing visits to area residents who want to have state-of-the-art care, but find it difficult to leave their homes. Our highly-trained staff offers an array of medical services right in your home, so you can continue to enjoy your independent lifestyle without compromising your well-being.
Aging in Place
Nursing homes and assisted-living communities can offer plenty of benefits for seniors, but all those advantages can be virtually meaningless to those men and women who want desperately to remain in their homes as they get older. The problem of aging in place is not unique to Minnesotans; the entire population of America is getting older, and the need for in-home services aimed at enabling men and women to stay in their homes and delay or avoid nursing home care is soaring as a result. Northfield Hospital & Clinics founded its home care program to meet that growing need and to help men and women remain in their own familiar environments for as long as possible – without compromising their medical or personal care.
Therapy and More
All therapies listed are included as part of the care as needed. We can arrange for ancillary services to be performed in your home, including:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech and swallowing therapy
- Meals-on-Wheels delivery
- Social worker visitation
Every care plan is designed specifically for each person, based on the individual's specific care needs and preferences for optimal care that's never intrusive.
If you're not ready for in-home meal preparation but you'd like to make meal-planning a little easier, you can still ensure you get the nutritious meals you need by signing up for Meals-on-Wheels. Meals-On-Wheels is a hospital-supported, volunteer organization dedicated to meeting the nutritional needs of the community through home-delivered meals. Meals are delivered by a dedicated staff of volunteers, and each meal includes a complete entree, beverage and dessert. Delivery is offered seven days a week, every day of the year – even on holidays – and the cost is $6.05 per meal. Meals-on-Wheels is available within the Northfield city limits. To learn more about the program and to see if you qualify, call the Nutrition Services Department at Northfield Hospital at (507) 646-1022.
