Is Home Health Care Right for You?
Home health is a physician-ordered plan of care available to patients after a hospital stay, the onset of a new diagnosis, or in the event an existing illness becomes worse. It is a way you can recover in the comfort of your own home with the support of your family and friends. And, it can be just as effective as care received in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
Homeland HomeHealth patients are cared for by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals including nurses, CNAs, and social workers, as well as physical, occupational, and speech therapists. Each patient’s care plan is individualized based on their particular condition.
“Some of our patients need help with speech or swallowing after suffering a stroke,” says Lora Bierce, RN, WCC, COS-C, and Director of Homeland HomeHealth. “Some patients may need nurses to administer medication they cannot take independently. Some patients need assistance with personal care, such as dressing or bathing, after experiencing a fall. We bring the quality care a patient would otherwise receive in a health care facility right into their home.”
Homeland HomeHealth’s medical professionals provide knowledge and expertise in wound care, cardiac care, palliative care, fall prevention, rehabilitation services, intravenous therapy, and more. Costs for home health services are typically covered by insurance, and Homeland staff are happy to assist you in meeting referral requirements.
Homeland HomeHealth is certified by Medicare with deemed status and accredited by Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP).
