Here at Alma Health, we provide medical and social case management services throughout Pennsylvania. We work with compensation companies, insurance companies, employer groups, and private consumers to develop a plan to fit each individuals’ needs! From pediatric to geriatric care, we know that there’s no one-plan-fits-all solution. Everyone has different needs and we’re here to make sure that all of those needs are met in a simple and convenient way!
Why choose Alma Health?
We work with our clients directly to provide the best possible care. While coordinating with agencies in the community, we give our clients choices every step of the way. We want to make sure that everyone we work with is comfortable and happy. Keeping individuals living independently and happily in their own home is our goal!
We also provide understanding, because we know how difficult these things can be! Having the right services can help improve clinical outcomes, which is why we’re so committed to finding the right plan for each patient and the right doctors, RN’s, therapists, home health aides, etc.
Some of our case management services include:
Home risk assessments and fall prevention
Medication management and education
Monitoring of patients with health problems like cancer or heart failure
For the most part, all know how the immune system works, right? Your immune system fights off germs, bacteria, viruses, etc. to help prevent an infection. Although we’re sometimes prescribed medications to help fight off these infections, our immune system is our body’s’ first defence against illness. But sometimes, for reasons we’re yet to understand, the immune system begins to turn on itself—it begins fighting itself. This is what is referred to as sepsis.
Of surgeries performed in America, nearly 20% of those patients are seniors over the age of 65. Due to age, surgery can come with an increased risk of complications both during and after the procedure. There are many reasons for the increased risk. Aside from senior’s bodies being more delicate due to age, seniors can be sensitive to the drugs used during surgery, such as anesthesia. The same amount of drug that is traditionally used for every patient can have a varying effect on the elderly.
