Expert Home Health Care from UCLAHHC
Health care does not have to happen in sterile, unfeeling clinics and hospital rooms. Many people, whether they’re recovering from an injury, suffering from an illness, or just needing a little help as they age, do not need the constant, intensive care that a hospital or nursing provides. Instead, many choose to have health care providers come to them. At Unique Care Los Angeles Home Health Care, we pride ourselves on providing top-quality care to our patients in the comfort of their own homes. We have served the greater Los Angeles area for years, helping hundreds live their lives fully and safely.

Who Can Benefit from Health Care at Home?
As time goes on, more and more medical professionals and people in general are coming to understand that the home is often the best place to deliver and receive medical intervention. Not every patient requires highly intensive or round-the-clock care that a hospital or nursing facility provides, so for those patients who do not need so much assistance, physicians are prescribing in-home health care. Receiving medical help at home is much more comfortable—and inexpensive—than a stay at a hospital or a nursing facility. Medicare offers a 30-day plan for those who are home bound, and private insurance often includes home health benefits.
The elderly is the group who most often make use of our services. Aging affects everyone differently, so we write a dedicated care plan for each patient, noting his diagnosis, condition, capabilities, and needs. We have ample experience helping people in a wide variety of situations.
People recovering from major surgery, severe illness, or an injury
People who are disabled and need help to walk or grasp objects
Those who live with dementia or other psychiatric ailments
People who are uncommunicative or catatonic
These are just some of the people who can benefit from receiving health care at home. No matter the situation, research indicates that comfortable home-care settings contribute to the recovery and overall health of patients. Patients who can stay at home recover from injury faster, they enjoy a greater amount of independence than hospitalized patients, and they decline more slowly from their conditions.
The needs of every patient are different, so the plan of care for each patient must be different, too. The managing nurse directs and follows that patient’s care closely, updating the plan at need.
Meet Our Staff
At Unique Care Los Angeles Home Health Care, we believe in providing only the best for our patients. Each of our staff members is a dedicated and competent health care provider.
Are the strong backbone of any health care team. They create a unique health care plan for each patient and direct the care that comes from other members of the health care team, such as home health aides and therapists. Furthermore, nurses take a direct hand in each patient’s health by monitoring vital signs, performing wound care, and administering medications.
Home health aides
Are dedicated, compassionate caregivers who do most of the day-to-day work in keeping the patient comfortable at home. Under the direction of a nurse, a home health aide can assist patients with walking and exercise, eating and food preparation, bathing and toilet assistance, and much else that able-bodied people take for granted.
Come with a variety of specialties, each of which can improve the lives of patients depending on their needs. Physical therapists assign exercise regimens to keep patients strong and ambulatory. Occupational therapists work with patients to keep them doing what they love best.
Speech therapists help patients speak and swallow.
As part of the health care plan, we regularly communicate with doctors to keep them apprised of their patients’ conditions. The doctors respond by prescribing new medications and treatments, ordering tests, and recommending changes to the care we provide.
Many of our clients can take an active role in their own health care. They are perfectly capable of completing exercise routines recommended by therapists, checking their own vital signs, sorting and taking medication, and performing many tasks of day-to-day living. Family members, as well, often perform the bulk of caregiver activities. This can be intimidating for those who have never cared for a seriously sick or injured adult, so our nurses and therapists typically step into the role of educators. We train patients and family members how to use medical equipment, administer medicine, check vital signs, and keep the home safe. And we teach family members just what to do in a crisis.
Care on Demand
When you sign up with us, we will make a schedule that best suits your needs. It can be a little intimidating to have a health care worker come into your home, so it is important that everyone understands when visits are to occur. Unfortunately, health crises can happen at any time. For those stressful events, a nurse is always available for you on the phone to give advice or arrange a visit for as soon as possible. Help is never far away with UCLAHHC.
