Home Health

Home health care helps people recover from surgeries, injuries or acute illnesses and is often used to help chronic diseases like diabetes, COPD or heart failure at home.

Home Health Programs and Services

Skilled Nursing: Nurses serve as your doctor’s eyes and ears in your home. They teach you and your caregiver about your condition and symptoms, help manage pain and medications, provide wound care, monitoring and support for behavioral health disorders like anxiety and depression.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapists improve your quality of life and reduce your risk of falling. Physical therapy goals include relieving pain; restoring flexibility, improving strength, balance, coordination and movement and preventing disability.

Occupational Therapy: Occupational therapists and occupational therapist assistants (OTAs) help people do what they need and want to do so they can recover or live independently for as long as possible. They help teach you how to use special equipment, suggest ways to make your home safer and provide tips and tools to make activities of daily living easier.

Speech Therapy: Speech therapy at home can help patients improve essential skills like swallowing, processing information and communicating. Often, home health speech therapy patients are dealing with medical issues like stroke, dementia, cancer or brain injuries.

Home Health Aide: Home health aides help with personal care needs such as getting out of bed, moving around, bathing and getting dressed.

Medical Social Work: Medical social workers act as advocates for your needs and help coordinate your care with the rest of your healthcare team. They can also provide counseling and referrals to local resources in your community.

Wound Care: Health care nurses monitor and care for a variety of wounds to help reduce complications, promote healing and keep you safe at home. Specialty Programs: We provide specialized empowerment programs to help patients learn to manage chronic conditions like heart failure, COPD, diabetes and falls to control symptoms and improve quality of life.
