Living with Heart Failure Program
It’s All about Quality . . . Improving Quality of Life for Those with Congestive Heart Failure Disease
McLean Home Care is a leader in providing home care services to individuals living with chronic medical conditions such as congestive heart failure, or CHF. At McLean, we partner with physicians to offer the Living with Heart Failure program, designed to help patients with CHF to better understand and manage their symptoms, reduce risks for re-hospitalization and most importantly, improve their quality of life.
McLean’s multifaceted program is designed to assist patients living with heart failure and their caregivers to manage CHF successfully at home by fostering self-management and providing a multidisciplinary support system using McLean’s team of nurses and occupational and physical therapists. The overall goal is to proactively reduce urgent care visits and preventable re-hospitalizations of those living with CHF.
Our innovative CHF home care program can help patients being discharged from the hospital to various after-care settings, including the McLean Post-Acute Center, their home with the McLean Home Care Team or their home with the McLean Hospice Team, if the patient is in the advanced stages of heart disease and chooses to live well with comfort care.
Through our Living with Heart Failure program, McLean Home Care offers CHF patients telemonitoring, along with self-management skills designed to reduce hospitalizations. Our home care services play a major role in helping you avoid hospital stays. We are honored to be # 1 among home care agencies in our service area for having the lowest rate of hospitalization for our patients, according to “Home Health Compare” outcomes at www.medicare.gov.
McLean is also proud to be part of the award winning Qualidigm Heart Health Project, designed to keep patients with CHF healthier and reduce hospital readmissions resulting from “tired hearts” or chronic heart failure.
