What is Home Health Care? 

Home Health Care (sometimes referred to as skilled nursing, long-term care, rehabilitation care) refers to the medical care and services that are provided to individuals who are home bound. The need for these services typically are required after a surgery or during an illness. All services are performed in the privacy of the individuals’ home.

Home health services provided include the following:

  • Registered Nurse

  • License Practical Nurse

  • Physical Therapy

  • Occupational Therapy

  • Speech Therapy

  • Home Health Aides

Other specialized therapies are also available to assist, encourage and support an individual’s quality of life.

To qualify for Home Health Care you will need to have doctor’s orders, or a referral, to start care. Once we receive your referral, we schedule an appointment to come to your home for an initial evaluation to ask questions regarding your health and ensure we meet your needs. Once we begin your care, we will be in contact with your doctor regarding your care and keep your doctor updated on your progress.

 

Our goal is to help you heal, maximize your self-sufficiency and independence, improve or maintain your current condition, and slow the decline of any health conditions. We strive to give our patients a dignified and high quality of life.   

If you have questions regarding eligibility to receive these services, call us today and speak to one of our licensed nursing professionals.
