Home Health Services
As people age, they can become more frail and less likely to go into the community to access services. Home Health Services offers care to patients in their home, such as patients that have difficulty leaving home due to medical or physical restriction, or have returned from hospital stays and would benefit from home health services. Trained staff will be in your home within 24 hours after receiving your doctors’ orders to assess your needs and create a comprehensive treatment plan. Home Health Services offers skilled nursing services including psychiatric nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapies, home health aides, skilled observations and assessments, wound care, technical hands on teaching and training, and medical social work. The staff can also facilitate communications with personal physicians to make transitions easier. This service is time limited and covered by Medicare and other insurances. There is also private pay service available.
Your doctor decides that for you based on a number of factors, including whether or not you are able or permitted to leave your home for safety or medical reasons.
