  • 01/21/17- When is it time to transition to Hospice Care
    Posted by EGAN Healthcare of EGAN Home Health and Hospice
    When is the right time for Hospice? One of the biggest decisions the terminally ill and their families have to make is when to accept a terminal diagnosis and switch from curative treatment measures to hospice and palliative care. When a person stricken with a disease is given a medical prognosis of being terminally ill with at or about six months left to live provided the disease runs its normal course, it's time to transition from attempting to treat and cure the illness or ailment to a service more focused on relief of symptoms, and the mental and spiritual health of the patient and his or her loved ones. An obvious caveat to thisis that no additional curative treatment will either cure the disease or increase life expectancy by any meaningful degree. Many times, the treatments to the diseases that kill people are not only extremely painful and uncomfortable, they're also physically and emotionally draining, and take up precious time that could be spent comfortably by the patient doing something he or she enjoys with the people he or she loves. When treatments are no longer working, and the alternative is to be comfortable at home with the people the patient loves, then it's time for hospice. There are many important differences between curative treatment, hospice and palliative care... More

  • 01/04/17- Louisiana Home Health Agency Showing That Quality Matters
    Posted by Pamela Egan of Wellness and Anti-Aging Clinic
    Southeast Louisiana Home Health Care Company Excels at Providing Quality Care For years, the United States federal government has been comparatively rating home health care agencies on the basis of quality-of-care. While this information is published online and available for anyone who wishes to look at it, the unfortunate reality is that the overwhelming majority of decisions regarding which home health agency provides care to a given patient are made by doctors, case managers and/or discharge planners who aren't necessarily as invested in the patient's recovery as is the patient and his or her family, and in some cases may even have motives unrelated to the quality of care the patient will receive when deciding which agency to recommend for a given patient. While the general consensus is that this is likely to change over the next few years as reimbursement models shift more towards what is being termed within the industry as "bundling", the fact is that for most of the past three decades and even to an extent still today, a home care agency sees very little difference to their bottom line regardless of whether they provide exemplary care or a very poor standard of care. However, this has not deterred at least one home health agency in southeast Louisiana that has long prided itself on its quality-of-care from providing a standard of care that is so far above the state and nationwide averages in the categories measured by Medicare's "Home Health Compare" it's uncanny and almost hard to believe. EGAN Home Health and Hospice, which was founded in 1988 with a mission to provide the very best in patient care appears to have made good on their founding promise... More
