What is homecare?

Home health care is physician-directed, short-term care aimed to help patients avoid or recover from an injury, illness, surgery, hospital stay or manage other medical conditions. Care must be prescribed by a physician and the homecare team follows the plan of care established with you and your physician. Homecare is provided through visits from an experienced, specialized team of clinicians on a short-term basis until your individual goals are met. Our highly skilled team of nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, social workers and home health aides bring compassionate personalized care to you and your family.
