At Candid Home Health Care Services, a team of Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses administers tube feeding for clients at home. This program entails the actual tube feeding assistance as well as educating the client (and family members) on tube feeding formulas, what equipment to use, how to care for equipment and what supplies to maintain as directed by the physician.
The tube feeding specialized team will work with the client’s nutritionists too. It’s important that regular monitoring is conducted to make sure that the client is getting the right level of attention necessary. Some of the components in the Tube Feeding program are:
- Monitoring of nutrition needs for the client
- Consultation with a Registered Dietitian
- Therapy / Case Management
- Tube Feeding Assistance
- Assistance in acquiring tube feeding supplies/medical equipment
