TeleHealth Nursing Services

TeleHealth nursing is an ideal solution for elderly and homebound individuals who are suffering from chronic diseases or other illnesses. With the TeleHealth monitoring services available from Apismellis Homecare, seniors and individuals suffering from chronic diseases can achieve increased independence and peace of mind. By using this easy to use service, patients can have a nurse monitor their health from the comfort of their own home. Our TeleHealth Services are convenient and ideal for patients located in St. Louis, MO, Lake Havasu City, AZ, and Parker, AZ.

Why Individuals Choose TeleHealth Services

TeleHealth nursing is the ideal choice for seniors and elderly patients suffering from chronic illnesses including diabetes, chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. For these individuals the need to have their symptoms and vital signs checked frequently can make it difficult for them to live on their own and may require them to move into a nursing home for frequent health monitoring and medical care.

With TeleHealth services from Apismellis Homecare, physicians and nurses can easily and remotely monitor important vital signs including pulse, weight, and temperature, preventing serious health problems from developing. Therefore, these individuals can maintain their independence and are able to remain living at home while still receiving the necessary care. Based on the information gathered from TeleHealth nursing, physicians can even change medications and other treatments as needed to respond to a patient's changing health conditions.

About TeleHealth Nursing Services

Using our TeleHealth nursing services is straightforward and simple enough for anyone to learn. In fact, Apismellis Homecare even provides the necessary training to show patients how to use our TeleHealth services. After the training and set up of the small TeleHealth monitor, our patients can then become connected directly to a nurse at the Apismellis Homecare Central Station who will monitor their health regularly. These nurses are highly trained and educated and offer superior expertise.

The following is the simple step-by-step process that you will encounter when using our TeleHealth nursing services from the comfort of your own home.

  • Vital Signs Check: Every morning, the easy-to-use TeleHealth monitor takes your vital signs including blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature, and weight.
  • Health Questions: In the next step, a friendly voice asks up to ten “yes” or “no” questions to you. Each of these questions will be individualized to your medication condition and situation. These questions are designed to allow Apismellis Homecare to further evaluate your health and wellbeing.
  • Nurse Review: After you complete this morning routine, your results are then transmitted electronically via your regular home telephone line to a nurse at the Apismellis Homecare Central Station. Our qualified TeleHealth nurses will review and monitor this data daily to ensure your health.
