Individuals living with physical disabilities or special needs have unique care requirements. Caring for loved ones with these challenges can be physically and emotionally draining for the families that love them.
In many cases, mobility is limited and some level of home care is required. At BrightStar® Home Care of Oak Lawn, we provide a personalized approach to care, case management and disability assistance for our clients.
Specialized Care for Long-Term Needs
Our experienced care professionals are trained to help children and adults with disabilities and special needs such as Spina Bifida, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Cerebral Palsy and spinal cord injuries, giving them the support they need to live as independently as possible.
With Registered Nurse oversight, our advanced and specialized expertise in caring for those with disabilities or chronic conditions ensures our clients’ safety and empowers everyone in your family to get the most out of life. Our CNAs are trained in the transfer of patients using Hoyer lifts and slide boards, and use the proper techniques to help patients avoid injuries and falls during transport.
Quality Care for Short-Term Disability
In addition to caring for those with congenital conditions (those they’re born with) or permanent disabilities, we also offer support to the large number of Americans who experience a short-term disability each year.
This may include recovery from a severe illness or injury, pregnancy complications, post-surgical care or even long COVID. The Department of Health and Human Services determined that long COVID can be a disability under the ADA (Section 504 and Section 1557) if it substantially limits one or more major life activities.
