ENID — Care Team
Care Team is another one of Enid’s home health agencies.
“We have actually been in business, doing what we do, for over 40 years,” said Lacey Morgan, corporate marketing director.
Care Team has offices in several locations across the state, and Enid is its newest location, where it is managed locally.
Care Team is a private-pay agency, said Morgan, which is beneficial to those patients who need more home health care than Medicare will allow.
“We are the only stand-alone, licensed, private-pay agency in Enid,” said Morgan. “Anyone can be a client.”
Aside from providing home health care, Care Team also provides other services to their clients.
“Most of our services are helping out around the home,” said Morgan.
Care Team has more than 20 staff members who offer home health care services and help clients with household tasks, and they also offer around-the-clock care.
Recently Care Team added Ashby Memory Method to its therapy services.
“It’s a specialty program for anyone with Alzheimer’s,” said Morgan. “It’s very unique. No one else in Oklahoma offers it.”
Ashby Memory Method is a therapy in which the client and the therapist engage in activities that have been shown to reinforce skills and work the parts of the brain affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.
Care Team also offers medical alert pendants for clients. These pendants are to be worn by the client and have a button to push in the case of an emergency. When the button is pushed, local emergency responders are notified.
“It’s just an added protection,” Morgan said.
Care Team is a member of National Private Duty Association.
