Patricia A. Wentworth, RN, MBA

Home Health Care
Licensed Nursing Assistants (LNAs) help patients with activities of daily living, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, toileting, and dressing. Our LNAs also assist with light household duties, such as laundry, meal preparation, general housekeeping, and shopping. These important services often allow the patient to remain at home.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) work with individuals who have physical and/or developmental problems to help them develop strategies to perform effectively the general activities of daily life, such as eating, bathing, and dressing.
Physical Therapists (PTs) use specialized techniques to restore the mobility and strength of patients. They also teach patients and caregivers techniques for walking and for transferring in and out of beds or chairs. Pre-operative home safety evaluations help prevent disabling accidents such as falls. Pre-hab visits are provided, ordered by the patient's physician, to help prepare for hip and knee replacement surgeries.
Registered Nurses (RNs) work with patients of all ages to provide skilled care that cannot be performed safely and effectively by non-clinical personnel. These services include injections and intravenous therapy, wound care, medication management, clinical education, physical assessments, and pain management.
Medical Social Workers (MSW) and Speech Therapists (ST) are available through contracted services.

Virginia H., Registered Nurse
Virginia is of Lithuanian origin and has been living in the United States since 2001. She became a U.S. citizen in 2014.
