This is to
inform you about the services you can expect from the Continuum
Care, Inc. home health aide assigned to your care.
The home health aide is provided for your personal care. This
includes assistance as needed for your bath, grooming, mouth care
and linen changes. Other services are provided ONLY as specified on
your plan of care.
Our Home Health Aides visit 4 to 6 patients a day. You will be seen
between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Although we would like to
give you an exact time, we can give you a two hour window. This
allows our home health aides to give each patient all the attention
they may need on any single day.
Two to three visits per week by a home health aide is considered as
reasonable. Adjustments will be made according to your medical
Because of the number of patients seen each day by the aides, their
time is valuable. They will assist you to the best of their ability
within this time.
Because of schedules, it may be impossible to send the same aide
every time, but every effort will be made to do so. Continuity of
care is important to us too.
If you wish to have extra hours of care that is in addition to the
plan of care, you may elect to pay privately for these services. If
so please contact our office to make arrangements on St. Croix at
(340) 772-2273 or on ST. Thomas and St. John at (340) 714-2273.
While you are receiving medically ordered services of an aide, a
nurse will come every two weeks for supervisory visits. The nurse
will evaluate the continuing need for the aide and your satisfaction
with the work.
Please note: A home health aide may NOT administer medications. They
can assist the patient but they can never dispense medicines.
If you need to reschedule or discontinue your aide visits, please
notify the office.
