Nutrition Therapy

Learn about Nutrition Therapy

At CarePro Home Health, we want to simplify your nutrition therapy. Whether you need enteral or parenteral nutrition, you don't have to shop around for a care coordinator, nurse and pharmacist. We have all those professionals right here, working together for you.

Need Nutrition Therapy? Here's What to Expect:

Before You Leave the Hospital - We'll coordinate your care plan with hospital staff, determine your insurance coverage for home care and contact your insurance provider for authorization. If time allows, we'll demonstrate your new equipment and teach you and/or a family member how to use it. CarePro pharmacists will work closely with your doctor to confirm all orders, lab work and the proper formulation for your enteral (tube feeding) or parenteral nutrition.

When You Get Home - Many of our patients handle their own feedings (with our help, of course). Your home care nurse will teach you about your therapy in as many home sessions as you need. We want you or your helping family member to feel comfortable with preparing the formula and using the equipment. We'll also show you how to track your temperature and weight and how to spot potential complications. CarePro's team will check in with you when your supplies run low. Not sure of something? Call us at 1-800-755-6997 - 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Your Continued Care - We're there for you as long as you need us. Many of our patients have been using our enteral and parenteral nutrition services for more than 10 years. Others return to us if they have a recurring need.

How to Order Enteral (Tube Feeding) Supplies

Our nutrition support team is always available to help you manage your enteral formula and feeding supplies. Typically, a staff member will contact you approximately one week before your next delivery is due. However, if you are getting low on enteral formula or supplies and have not received a call from us, please feel free to contact us. We will need two business days' notice to fill your order.
