Home Health Care Farmington NM
Guardian Angel Home Health and Hospice was started by Dixie Thompson in 2003. After graduating from nursing school in 1997 and working for most of the other agencies in the area, she decided to take on the task of opening her own agency. Starting with 30 patients, she became the nurse, the therapist, home health aide, the phlebotomist and do not forget, the bookkeeper.
Through lots of trial and error, blood sweat and tears, she has been able to accomplish her dream of caring for patients and their families, not only through the P.C.O and Hospice programs she has developed, but also through all the volunteering and special activities she does during the holidays, including making plates on Thanksgiving morning and delivering them to patients who may not have family around or available to putting together the “Grandparent Trees” in which we deliver gifts to the elderly community that are residing in assisted living or nursing homes.
We at Guardian Angel Home Health and Hospice are here to share with patients, that everyday is an opportunity to make positive changes in their lives or their families lives,and to treat every patient as if they were our family and to help and educate every person in need.
Home Health care services, are that component of comprehensive healthcare, whereby services are provided to individuals and families in their place of residence for the purpose of promoting, maintaining and restoring health and minimizing the effects of illness and disability.
Services appropriate to the needs of the individual patient and their family are planned, coordinated and made available by our agency.
While the services provided are all focused to the attention of the individual patient and his or her recovery, there is also a focus on the family and all other “informal” family members who are engaged in the recovery of the patient. These individuals generally provide the 24hr care and support necessary during the patients period of illness or dependency.
Here at Guardian Angel we are dedicated to working with each affiliate to deliver the medical attention necessary for each clients’ well being.
