Enteral Nutrition

Enteral nutrition is feeding by a tube inserted into the stomach or intestine for patients who are unable to eat by mouth. These patients may include individuals with certain gastrointestinal and neuromuscular disorders and stroke patients who can no longer swallow effectively. Enteral nutrition can be needed either on a long or short term basis.  In-HomeCare America’s enteral nutrition encompasses:

 

  • Education and training for patient and caregivers
  • Careful monitoring of nutritional needs
  • Supply feeding supplies, formulas, and equipment

How To Get Started

If you are a patient, the first step to beginning home health care with In-HomeCare America is requesting a referral for home healthcare from your physician or hospital discharge planner. Family members of patients who need home health care services may also request a referral.

Medical professionals can refer patients to us by phone, fax or completing the referral form located here. 


Once your referral has been received, In-HomeCare will send a registered nurse or therapist to your home for an assessment and begin the admission process.
