HOME HEALTH CARE I QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
In order to be admitted into home health care, the patient must be homebound, in need of health care that requires skilled nursing or physical, occupational, speech, or respiratory therapy on an intermittent basis, and referred by a physician, who must sign the initial plan of care to commence services.
Home health care can assist people of all ages, from children to senior citizens. Whether you have been discharged from a hospital or nursing home, and require additional care, or need assistance to remain at home, or personal care training, home health care is the solution for you.
Our home health care team is comprised of referring physicians, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, home health aides, licensed therapists (physical, occupational, speech and respiratory), and licensed medical social workers.
