Emeritus
My mother lived at Emeritus for a little over two years. She recently passed away from Alzheimer’s. The team there truly is special in joining my mothers “Journey” as the memory care director would put it. She was well cared for and engaged during her short time at Emeritus. The initial process was overwhelming but that was soon replaced by ease once I knew mom was being cared for. Big positives are the care and compassion they treated my mom and other memory care residence with. The only true negative was that the common areas could have been kept cleaner. The only thing I would have done different is that I should have moved my mom in two years sooner and given her the proper care she deserved and my dad a much needed break.

Nurse 1
I just want to say THANKS!!! My grandmother had told me that after falling and breaking her hip she was going to be scared of being alone, but after the quality care that she received at home when she was released from the hospital with the staff at Nurse1, her fear had changed. The nurses helped make grandma feel comfortable coming back home and helped create a system for organizing her medications as well making recommendations for making the home safer. Also big kudos to the therapists that came out for her therapy sessions. That really made a difference in her recuperation time! From my family BIG thanks!!! I would definitely recommend them for Medicare services!!!

Nurse 1
Amazing agency. We called them looking for a caregiver to help my family member. Within hours of calling we had met an agency rep who assisted us with finding a high quality caregiver to help us. We even able to get home care assistance through Medicare and our private insurance. Life ahas been so much easier since we hired this agency to help us thanks so much to Nurse 1.

My grandmother has been in and out of the hospital recently and she now requires home health. After many calls and searches, we found Veritas! Maria and Ed have made things much easier than my family and I anticipated. I highly recommend Veritas should you need a nurse.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
