Medical Care Coordination
Black Hills Works supports a healthy lifestyle and the best possible health for each person we serve. Nursing staff provide education on health issues, maintain health records, utilize community health practitioners, ensure that routine examinations are received, and assist with medical emergencies. The nursing department also provides training to agency employees on a variety of preventative health issues. Personal health support is offered to people with more severe disabilities. Staff provide personal and dental hygiene, feeding assistance, and other care. They also implement special diets and individualized exercise programs designed with the consultation of various therapists. When these basic needs are met, people can focus on and maximize opportunities in other areas of their life.
