IVPS works with a wide range of DME suppliers such as Hart Medical, Binsons, J&B, etc. to provide the best products for our patients.

Our providers can order supplies, for example: walkers, nebulizers, incontinence supplies, hospital beds and many more. Our goal is to provide quick, quality, comfortable and affordable medical equipment that will suit your needs.

Older adults with chronic conditions receive care from multiple providers, across multiple settings, and this care is often unorganized and confusing. At IVPS, we have established a model of interprofessional primary care (family health teams) with the aim of providing enhanced interdisciplinary primary care to patients. We coordinate our referrals with health care professionals and other specialists who may be involved in your care. Our main goal is to have clear and direct communication with any health providers involved with your care.

Such referrals can include physician specialists such as:

  • Cardiologist
  • Neurologist
  • Wound Specialist
  • Psychiatrist
  • Ophthalmologist and Dentist

The main reason individuals take medication is to improve quality of life. However, if you are not feeling well or taking multiple medications, remembering to take the right medications at the right times can be difficult. If medications aren’t taken properly, quality of life does not improve, and in many cases, it declines.

This is where medication management comes in; it can assist in getting the right prescriptions to the right individuals, and ensure they are taken at the right time. But there’s a whole lot more to medication management…

As America’s older population continues to grow, the need for quality medication management services does too. It is an important tool for ensuring the health of these individuals as well as managing their health care costs. Benefits of providing medication management for this population include:

  • Better outcomes for older adults.
  • Less stress for the patients and their families. Everyone can be comfortable knowing medications are being distributed and taken correctly.
  • Less money spent on related health care costs such as emergency room visits and hospital stays
  • Reduced illnesses and deaths due to medication noncompliance or drug interactions

Whether someone neglects to take their medications properly because they forget or think they don’t need it, the fact is, failing to do so can lead to serious consequences. Through medication management, individuals get the medications they need, on time, every single day. Their quality of life improves immensely, and everyone involved is able to worry less about the health of their loved ones.

More than 65 million Americans juggle the daily demands of work, home, children and caring for someone who may be disabled, ill, or aging. Managing busy families and the emotional decisions that must be made when caring for a loved one can be overwhelming. 

Parents and adult children may live thousands of miles away from one another, separated by different cities, states, or even countries. Often, the demands and pressure of providing care can result in caregiver burnout—a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion. It occurs when family caregivers do not get the help they need and are trying to do more than they are able to. 

For many families, home health care is a beneficial choice—a safe and affordable solution that supports the family, while allowing your loved ones to stay in the comfort of their own homes and communities.

If you are caring for a loved one, here are ten ways home health care can support you:

  1. Home health care professionals can be there when you aren’t able to be
  2. Home care supports activities of daily living (ADLs)
  3. Access to skilled nursing care at home
  4. Support with diet and nutrition
  5. Medication management
  6. Home health care professionals provide caring companionship
  7. Home care helps with light household chores
  8. Home health care clients have comparable or better health outcomes
  9. One-on-one focus and support
  10. An affordable alternative to facility or hospital care

For many families, home health care can be just the support they need to help manage caregiving responsibilities, while avoiding caregiver burnout.

Getting your older adult to the doctor’s office for an appointment can be difficult or sometimes impossible.

Whether they’re frail, can’t walk on their own, or have Alzheimer’s or dementia, getting out of the house is hard on both of you. Going to a doctor’s office can also expose seniors to germs or harsh weather.

Wound care is a medical treatment plan for wounds that do not heal easily on their own. Non-healing wounds are wounds that haven’t started healing within two weeks or have not completely healed within six weeks. For seniors, these types of wounds commonly include pressure sores, surgical wounds, radiation sores, and ulcers, and can typically be intensified if they suffer from diabetes, poor circulation, inactivity, poor nutrition, or a weak immune system – all common conditions in the senior population.

So what should you do if you or a loved one is regularly suffering from non-healing wounds? The best option is to look for a care provider that is specifically certified in Wound Care, who can help make sure the wound is properly cared for, and can help you or your loved one heal as quickly and painlessly as possible.

With the help of our home care vendors and other medical vendors, we will try our best to find you the best provider to meet your needs. A treatment plan will be developed, and complete instructions will be given to caregivers to assist with keeping up with the wound.

Pain and pain management are a growing concern among Americans age 65 and older.¹ Recent analysis of data from a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study found that more than half (53%) of the older adults surveyed reported having bothersome pain in the last month; three-quarters of them reported having pain in more than 1 location. Bothersome pain, particularly in multiple locations, also was associated with decreased physical capacity.²

Each patient should be evaluated individually to identify the most effective strategies to use in hopes of achieving the best possible outcome with the least amount of side effects. This can be particularly problematic when working with the elderly population because they tend to face a unique set of challenges

Our pain specialist evaluates diagnosis and sets a treatment plan for various chronic pain such as diabetic and nerve. Treatment can include physical and/or occupational therapy, medication management, and referrals to outpatient facilities.

As the aging process progresses, it may be difficult for elderly people to avoid blisters and infections concerning the feet. This may be a result of poor vision, which may hinder proper foot care management. Many elderly people may benefit by having a caregiver trim the toenails to ensure they are cut to a proper length. Research has shown any tools that are used should be cleaned and sanitized, which is often accomplished by using boiling water. These may include nail clippers and metal files. Taking advantage of a foot bath may aid in helping cracked skin feel more comfortable, followed by utilizing a good moisturizer to maintain softness in the skin. Measuring the feet prior to purchasing shoes is recommended for a comfortable fit in addition to wearing clean and dry socks. Please consider speaking with a podiatrist if you would like additional information on how to properly care for elderly feet.

Proper foot care is something many older adults forget to consider. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet. Our podiatrist ensures to develop a treatment plan suitable for individual patient needs, whether it be orthotics, medications, or physical therapy to provide comfort relief to you.
