Home Health

Our Home Health program allows people to receive skilled care at home rather than in a hospital or other in- patient facility. 

We serve clients in six counties with skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and aide services. A physician order is required to access these services.

Home Health is Medicare/Medicaid certified and accepts most private insurances.

Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses provide individualized plans of care to fit the client’s needs which may include:
  • Skilled assessment, observation and management of all body systems
  • Education and instruction of medical diagnosis, conditions and medications
  • Traditional wound care as well as state of the art techniques involving wound vacs and low level laser phototherapy lights
  • Diabetic instruction and care
  • Phlebotomy (draw blood specimens for lab test)
  • Administration of IV therapy including antibiotics
  • Insertion and care of PICC lines
  • Medication set-up and management for Medicaid clients

Nurses’ Aides provide:

  • Monitoring of the client’s vital signs
  • Personal care services such as bathing, shampooing, and hygiene needs
  • Simple therapy exercises at the instruction of the RN or PT

Occupational Therapists provide:

  • Provide evaluation and implementation of assistive devices to encourage energy conservation.  
  • Assist the client in developing strategies and techniques to more effectively complete activities of daily living.

Physical Therapists:

  • Provide gait training,
  • Range of motion exercises,
  • Strengthening for upper and lower extremities,
  • Post CVA/MI rehabilitation,
