The Mederi Caretenders difference located in Gainesville, Florida starts with our Senior Advocacy philosophy: to address the challenges facing our aging population in a revolutionary new way. Our clinical team looks beyond the obvious needs of our patients to become advocates for their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Whether you are faced with a new diagnosis, recent surgery, chronic health problem or a long-term illness, we can provide highly skilled and compassionate care. Our Senior Advocacy programs provide specialized services to promote optimum health and help keep you independent for as long as possible. Our Registered Nurses and other staff receive advanced training and credentialing. Each patient’s skilled Senior Advocacy Care team is coordinated by a nurse care manager who works closely with the patient’s own physician to achieve the goals of treatment. Other members of the home health team include: Physical, occupational and speech therapists to increase the patient's strength, mobility, safety and communication; medical social workers to identify resources and offer counseling and support; dieticians, and other specialists.

Our credentialed clinical team utilizes "best practice" assessment tools and clinical protocols for the respiratory patient. Nurses and therapists collaborate to achieve goals of improving endurance, functional activity, medication compliance and knowledge to manage disease triggers.
Transitional Care Program
The Transitional Care program provides caring solutions during stressful periods of change for seniors. It is designed to offer a safe environment to explore feelings of loss, depression and anxiety that accompany age-related change.
A new diagnosis or the exacerbation of an existing diagnosis, loss of a spouse or estrangement of a spouse due to memory disease, or a move into an assisted living facility may be overwhelming. Many of these life changes are accompanied by a sense of loss of control, frustration, anger, depression, and confusion.
Mederi Caretender's goal: to help seniors age in place and transition successfully through loss or adjustment to new environments.
Physical, emotional and psychological needs are addressed in this clinical program led by an experienced psychiatric nurse. Our approach includes regular cognitive screening with standardized assessment tools to differentiate behavioral manifestations from cognitive decline. Promotion of aging in place through managing behavioral and psychiatric issues in combination with medical care management is our goal.
Palliative care provides specialized healthcare services designed to meet the needs of individuals with advanced illness and a limited life expectancy. Palliative care emphasizes dignity, comfort, choices and support for living life fully. Services include:
Skilled nursing for symptom and pain management
* Trained caregivers to provide support services such as staying with the patient when the family needs relief, offering companionship and running errands
* Social workers to provide emotional support, and referrals to community resources
* Bereavement care for family and friends through support groups and other resources
