Home health care options widely available in comfort of your home
Home Health Care Services:
Did you know that you have access to a broad spectrum of home health and wellness services for a seamless transition from hospital, clinic, doctor’s office to the necessary services in your own home, assisted living facility, or nursing home?
With a phone call we can work with your physician to develop a personalized in-home care plan for you or your loved one. This can mean additional care in your home following surgery, discharge from the hospital or a doctor’s visit.
Skilled home health care can provide a range of services, ordered by your doctor and provided in your home. It’s seamless care: a transition from a physician’s office or hospital to home, from illness to health, from troubled times to peace. Examples of skilled home health care include:
≤ Nursing care to educate and assist you and your family with a new diagnosis or to monitor a long-term illness such as diabetes, cancer, or heart and lung diseases
≤ Rehabilitation after surgery, stroke, or injury
≤ Support for every-day tasks like dressing or bathing
≤ Medical Social Workers to help coordinate everything from obtaining a sturdy walker or referral to the appropriate community organization to help sort out a disability benefit
Home health services may be right for you if you are under the care of a physician, dealing with a life-limiting illness or just need a hand to facilitate rehabilitation and foster independence.
Home health services are available for people of all ages and medical situations.
Hospice and Palliative Care

Hospice is loved ones caring for each other with the expertise and assistance of a team of dedicated professionals surrounding them.
A hospice team will work with your primary physician to meet the needs of you and your family.
