Home care agency in Lakeland, FL

Lakeland Home Heathcare

Taking care of a sick or elderly loved one can be a real challenge.  It tests your patience, eats up your time, and can be emotionally and physically draining.  Especially if you’re working and raising a family of your own.

Whether your loved one has been in the hospital for an illness, injured in a fall or accident, whether they need post-surgery help at home, or if someone in your family needs eldercare to retain their independence and quality of life, Care Team Home Care of Lakeland is at your service.

Whether it’s for a short period of time or a longer one, Care Team Home Care is here to assist you when you need us, for a day, a week, or every single day, seven days a week. At Care Team Home Care, we specialize in evaluating, informing, collaborating with, and advising our clients and patients so that you have all the information to make the important decisions concerning your loved ones’ healthcare.

Why Should Care Team Be Your Home Care Agency of Choice?

The Stoker Family has owned and operated Care Team Home Care since 1988. That’s 30-plus years our experienced Care Team has provided in-home skilled nursing and caregiver services including: eldercare, veterans care, wound care, skilled and non-skilled nursing services, after-surgery or after-hospitalization homecare, and specialty infusions.  That’s 30-plus years of know-how.

Serving Leesburg, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Bradenton, Lakeland, Pasco, and Ocala, Florida, our long history in the home healthcare industry ensures that our clients and patients have the most professional, quality healthcare, no matter the intricacies of care, the length of time, or circumstances.  

Our vast team of highly skilled nursing and caregiving professionals, and our experienced management team understand that this can be a difficult time for both client and patient. That’s why we are available for consultation, evaluation, health history and home environment reviews, medical team alliance, and prescription reviews, so that our clients and patients can make informed, and sometimes difficult or life-changing decisions.

Quality Care You Can Trust

Our team approach is unique in the industry. It consists first of sitting down with the patient or the patient’s caregivers to do a complete assessment of the patient’s health or recovery status to determine exactly what the patient’s needs are.  What type of services are required? Is the patient ambulatory? Do they need medical supervision? Nursing care or non-medical caregiving?  Toileting assistance?  Short-term or long-term care? These are only a few of the questions we determine answers to during our evaluation.

Once we have the detailed answers, we devise a Plan of Care, then we discuss the patient’s needs with our Care Team’s Service Coordinators so that they can assign the appropriately qualified staff members to the case.  

But our services don’t end there.  Once our Lakeland Care Team personnel are scheduled, we inform the patient that we are ready to begin their care. The caregiver or aide will then provide a brief background of each individual involved in your care. Patient, client and nurse or aide are then introduced to each other, expectations are outlined, questions are answered, routines are explained, and our services begin. When providing services, our caregivers, nurses, and aides follow a regimented discipline ensuring safety and hygiene, so you can feel confident that we are keeping your loved one safe.

All Care Team Home Care caregivers document the services they provide based on the patient’s Plan of Care. These documents are reviewed by a Care Team Registered Nurse for adherence to the care plan, as well as to ensure that any changes or notations are quickly ascertained. 

Besides a regular review of notes, we assign a Registered Nurse to visit the patient’s place of residence on at least a quarterly basis to monitor our services and our caregivers, to ensure everything and everyone is up to our high standards and to evaluate and address any concerns or changes that might be requested or needed.
