In-Home Services

In-home nurse with patient

Professional care in your home

We know that people are happier and healthier when they are able to receive the care they need in their own homes. Our licensed nurses and trained caregivers take that responsibility seriously, and we strive to provide our participants with exceptional services so they can live comfortably and independently in their homes.

Licensed nurses and caregivers

MERIL’s licensed nurses help with medication setups, diabetic nail care, skin monitoring, and vital sign checks. MERIL’s trained personal care attendants (PCAs) assist participants with personal care tasks, such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, and bathing. We also offer free “Vial of Life” kits to help you prepare for an emergency.

In-home nurse visits keep patient healthy and independent at home

Tiffany Diaz, LPN, and Roy Dalbey exemplify the success of MERIL’s In-Home Services program.
Roy has received in-home nurse visits from MERIL for almost a year. He receives weekly help setting up his medications and doing vital sign checks, and he receives monthly diabetic toenail care.
Roy said he appreciates the consumer-based nature of MERIL’s In-Home Services program, which focuses on patients’ independence and control over their own medical treatment.
Roy said he likes receiving medical assistance in his own home instead of in a hospital or a nursing home. He said his nurse Tiffany is “terrific” and “goes above and beyond for me and my needs.”
Roy said he would “definitely” recommend the In-Home Services program because Tiffany provides good medical care, and she is respectful and professional.
