Home Health services include in-home nursing and therapy services for those recovering from illness or surgery, or managing a chronic condition – at home.

To be eligible for home health care, you must have a medical condition that meets the criteria for home health care. Doctor’s orders are needed to start care. Once your doctor refers you for home health services, we will schedule an appointment to come to your home to talk to you about your needs. We will work alongside your doctor to establish a care plan and keep your doctor updated on your progress. Ask your doctor about home health if you or a loved one want to continue living independently while receiving care for injury or illness.
Our services are provided by licensed professionals. All of whom are trained and background-checked for your security and peace of mind.

Medicare defines “homebound” status as being those patients that require assistance when leaving the home and that when they do, it requires a considerable taxing effort.
Your doctor will determine the number of visits you receive, how often the visits should occur and how long they should last, based on your needs and health status. Some patients require several weeks of care while others may remain on service for several months. Patients are discharged from home health care services when the individual goals on the plan of care are met.
All of our locations are Medicare-certified and we are a long-standing member of the National Association of Home Care.

When you choose home health care you can remain in your home, surrounded by friends and family and still receive the expert care that you need to help you recover. Family members can visit as much as necessary. They can have peace of mind, knowing that you are receiving care in a safe, therapeutic environment.
Depending on your specific needs, the caregivers and clinicians coming into your home can vary. You could have different caregivers at different times of the day, week, or month as part of your care. Personal care and companionship services are most often provided by a home health aide (HHA) or certified nursing assistant (CNA). Private duty nursing care and home health care services are provided by registered nurses (RNs) or licensed practical nurses (LPNs), physical therapists (PTs), occupational therapists (OTs), or speech language pathologists (SLPs). A medical social worker (MSW) can help individuals and family members connect with community resources.
Additionally, depending on the provider you choose, there may be other professionals who don’t come to your home on a regular basis, but can be instrumental in helping to manage your care. These experts may help with things like overseeing your overall care experience, coordinating schedules, billing insurance companies and Medicare directly, and verifying your benefits eligibility.
