Home Health Care

Request information about our services

The focus of home health care is to help a patient recover from a serious setback. It could be a fall. It could be surgery. It could be a stroke or heart attack. Most people recover best when they are comfortably at home.

Once the need for 24/7 access to medical care is gone, patients can usually be discharged from the hospital or skilled nursing facility. This is when Home Health comes in to provide periodic medical services.

If the person you care for has trouble leaving the house and could benefit from the services below, ask your doctor for a referral, or give us a call at [Your Phone Number].

An initial assessment

We come to your loved one’s home and conduct an assessment. We look at your loved one’s strengths and weaknesses. Then we make recommendations for different types of care. Our goal is to help your loved one become as strong, healthy and independent as possible.

A nurse care manager

Periodic visits from a nurse may be all it takes for your loved one to remain at home. Our nurses teach and advise patients and family members. They also help by coordinating the treatment plan. They talk with the doctor. They talk with the therapists. They talk with other members of the health care team. They make sure that everyone involved is kept up-to-date on the latest improvements, changes in medicine, etc.

Medical therapists

Depending on your loved one’s condition, he or she may benefit from the expertise of trained therapists:

  • A physical therapist helps patients move and get stronger. They can also help reduce pain and prevent disability. Their treatments tend to use heat, massage and exercises.
  • An occupational therapist focuses on specific skills needed to live independently. Is your love one having difficulty eating? Brushing their hair? Dressing? Bathing? There are devices that may be able to help. Or perhaps a new approach that makes the task easier.
  • A speech therapist specializes in the nerves and muscles of the throat. They can help if your loved one had a stroke and can’t talk. Or maybe the person your care for is having trouble swallowing. With exercises he or she can strengthen those muscles and retrain the nerves.

Food is much more than just removing hunger. It is also tied to culture and love and family. A dietician can help you and your loved one find foods that taste good and that heal on all levels.
