“Home Health Care”, bringing the most cost effective, most preferred, and the highest quality care to the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
Services can be provided in a client’s own home for home-bound older adults, pediatrics, and anyone in our community in need of continued Skilled or Therapeutic care after an illness, injury, or surgery. Our program offers skilled nursing care, physical therapy, home health aide, and medical social worker.
To qualify for Home Health Care under participating health insurance plans, a client must currently be under a physician’s care, be unable to leave their home independently, and in need of intermittent skilled care or therapy.
Friends, family members, nurses, discharge planners, social workers or yourself may call District Health Dept No.2 and request an assessment. However the client’s physician must agree to the need for care, in writing, prior to admission to our Home Care Program. We have a registered nurse “on-call” 24 hrs a day/7 days a week. Our policy maintains that a nurse would contact the client within 24 hrs of the referral to arrange an initial visit for admission to Home Care Services.
