Skilled Nursing Care
When prescribed by your physician, our registered nurses and licensed practical nurses bring skilled medical expertise and care to you. This helps speed your recovery from injury, illness, and post-surgical conditions, and provides Medicare-certified skilled care for chronic conditions and other physician-ordered treatments. Our licensed nurses and social workers also serve as advocates and educators to help you and your caregiver learn the best ways to maintain your optimal independence at home.
Physical, Speech, or Occupational Therapy
Our physical, speech, and occupational therapists provide therapeutic services specifically designed for you and your home environment. This includes assistance in ordering equipment and performing an assessment to ensure that your residence is safe.
Medical Social Worker Services
Our interdisciplinary Home Health teams include knowledgeable medical social workers who specialize in senior care. They’ll guide you to valuable community resources, talk with you about the impact of your illness, and/or assist in long-range planning for future needs.
If you’re an eligible Medicare beneficiary, Medicare will cover 100% of home health care costs if you meet the following conditions:
