Home care has become a profession in demand over the years. Patients who can't take care of themselves, have a physical disability,
or geriatrics who suffer from arthritis count on dedicated professionals to tend to their needs. For residents of
Huntington Beach there is Universal Home Care, an organization which consists of social workers, registered nurses,
licensed vocational nurses and certified home health aides. These various services act as valuable resources to the
clients they serve by going directly to their patients homes in Orange County.
Nurses are responsible for administering the medications necessary for pain control and other job duties such as IV infusion.
Some other duties of Nurses may include educating clients on maintaining a healthy diet and informing diabetics on

park are all activities that too many of us take for granted, but are struggles for many home care clients. Universal

Huntington Beach, California.
