At Elite Professional Home Care, we understand our veterans may suffer from various health issues compared to civilians, including combat wounds, traumatic brain injuries, and mental health difficulties.

Too often, those who have given the most for their country are also left without the skills and treatment to recover from traumatic injuries and PTSD or rehabilitate back into society when they return home from serving.

Our Elite staff is dedicated to providing in-home services to our veterans to aid in recovery as comfortably as possible in their own home environment.

We will work with you in the following areas:

Recovery From Traumatic Injuries

Recovering from a traumatic injury is often challenging and frightening for veterans and their families. Due to traumatic injuries, veterans may experience physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral responses.

  • Physical responses include shock, disorientation, and a “fight or flight” response. Other symptoms include elevated heart rate, hyperventilation, dizziness, fatigue, and headaches.
  • Emotional responses may lead to anxiety and feelings of fear, depression, PTSD, and substance abuse.
  • Cognitive issues that arise from a traumatic brain injury lead to problems with maintaining attention, concentration, memory, problem-solving, speech, and language.
  • Behavioral responses include experiencing trouble sleeping, agitation, aggression, or changes in personality due to flashbacks or nightmares from the traumatic event.

These responses are expected and present a challenge during the healing process. Our Elite staff is equipped to support and help our veterans cope and recover from a traumatic injury through physical therapy and counseling, among other individualized services. 

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder 

Post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly known as PTSD, is a mental health disorder that can affect anyone after they experience or witness a traumatic event. Four categories comprise PTSD symptoms, including intrusion or a situation that serves as a reminder of the trauma, avoidance, changes in cognition and mood, and alterations in arousal or reactivity. All of these will vary in severity. 

It is common for PTSD symptoms to start early after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Other times, symptoms appear months or years after it happens. 

PTSD interferes with work, personal relationships with friends and family, coping mechanisms, and memory. Because PTSD may affect individuals differently, treatment options vary by situation and are individualized. Treatment options include therapy and medicines, such as antidepressants. 

Our Elite staff can assist our veterans with treatment plan options, including behavioral and mental health-related counseling, and coordinate with a personal mental health professional to meet our patients' needs. 

Rehabilitation Back Into Society

Military members and veterans often experience physical and mental-related challenges after returning home or completing years of service. One of the biggest challenges involves reintegrating, transitioning, and readjusting back into civilian society. 

Adjusting to civilian life becomes stressful, especially when faced with challenges, such as losing a comrade, facing physical or mental health problems, ongoing career transitions, or any other life-altering changes. The stress of reintegrating back into society leads to other symptoms, including the following:

  • Feelings of sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trouble sleeping or eating
  • Lack of concentration
  • Withdrawal from social activities

At Elite, our behavioral health team can assist as our veterans go through the reintegration process and rehabilitation back into society from the comfort of their own homes.

We also offer home-based therapy for traumatic brain injuries, concussions, or cognitive issues, as well as counseling for anxiety and depression. Our goal is to provide our veterans with the tools they need to rehabilitate into society successfully. 

Veteran Psychology and Medication Management

A study about veterans and military mental health issues indicates that two of the leading mental health challenges veterans face are PTSD and depression. At Elite, we are equipped to help our veterans with various diagnoses, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury, and medication management. 

Medication management involves safely monitoring medicines to ensure our patients can benefit from medical treatment while keeping a record and avoiding accidental harm.  

Our behavioral health nursing and therapy staff can assist our veterans in both of these aspects while providing support to their family members or caregivers. 

Short-Term Rehab and Therapy Needs Following Hospitalization 

Our team at Elite provides short-term rehab and therapy needs following hospitalization for our veteran patients recovering from surgery or an illness. Our patients can receive speech, physical, and occupational therapy, as well as surgical rehabilitation, in the comfort of their homes.

This service will benefit veterans who receive surgery, orthopedics, or joint replacement. We communicate with our patients to navigate post-surgery rehabilitation, create a plan, and monitor their progress. 

The Benefits of Doing Rehabilitation From Home

There are various benefits of receiving rehabilitation from home, including convenience, one-on-one care, and increased functionality.   

  • Convenience: Patients do not need to travel or waste time during scheduled appointments, as our Elite team works around our patient’s schedules while in their homes. It also helps family members as we provide effective assistance during recovery.
  • One-on-one care: In an in-home service, there is greater privacy, freedom, and independence for our veterans that they may not be able to feel in a hospital or rehabilitation center.
  • Increased functionality: Because our patients receive rehabilitation at home, they can better perform any exercise independently as they learn the movements in their environment with family or friends.
