Healthcare today transcends the four walls of a hospital and it is a given that patients who receive better care in their homes are definitely on the road to recovery. With a sizeable chunk of the population requiring nursing, rehabilitative, therapeutic, hospice, and assistive care services, the demand for qualified staff and capable caregivers is on the rise. However, with the resource crunch, inconsistency in caregiving, and lack of proper training among nurses and therapists, it is difficult for patients to receive quality care at home. BAYADA Home Health Care’s vision is all about creating a unique care experience at home. The company has developed a suite of home health care services that brings compassion, excellence, and reliability.

“Our primary opportunity is to continue to bring together people that want to be a part of a culture and organization that is working together to meet the needs of people who need health care at home,” says David Baiada, CEO of BAYADA Home Health Care. The company has recently adopted a nonprofit structure and has become the first home health care service to do so. He explains, “It’s very uncommon to make this type of shift, but at the end of the day, we decided our mission, long-term sustainability and commitment to our communities and employees is more important than money.”

BAYADA’s primary focus is on patients with critical conditions. Their perseverance in providing best care had led them to pioneer BAYAD Ability Rehab Solutions, the only specialized in-home rehabilitative nursing program in the world that serves patients with serious brain and spinal injury, disability, as well as illnesses such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS).

Under this program, BAYADA’s team of Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurses with special training assist patients with severe spinal cord injury, ALS, MS, and those needing ventilator care for 2-24 hours. BAYADA team’s focus on patient health can best be described through the story of how they helped Dwayne Fitz to improve functional mobility. Dwayne sustained a spinal cord injury during a tragic accident and was barely able to move even his finger. Dwayne’s clinical manager from BAYADA helped ease the hospital to home transition. With BAYADA’s support, Dwayne has shown immense progress in functional mobility and with constant therapy has gained back the ability to move his limbs as well as stand straight.

BAYADA’s home care includes personal care and companionship services, where daily activity care is provided to patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease by certified nurses and home health aides. The clinicians and nurses provide a physician prescribed and customized therapy as per the patient requirement and effectively reduce any chances of re-hospitalization. BAYADA Pediatrics services help children under the age of 18 having complex medical conditions and critical care requirements. Additionally, in their list of ‘first time in home health care’, BAYADA has introduced a simulation-based lab training program for pediatric professionals. The program uses pediatric manikins to simulate real-life emergencies, which helps BAYADA pediatrics’ staff to gain immense decision-making experience equivalent to that of a hospital in a safe environment.

With over 300 office locations across 22 states in the U.S. and operations in India, South Korea, Ireland, and Germany, BAYADA is planning to expand its solution further across the globe. As BAYADA embarks on a new journey of a non-profit organization, the team has decided to channelize the company’s profit and surpluses toward education and development of their clinicians.
