Why Choose Home Health Care?

Comments Off on Why Choose Home Health Care?   

Connecting Hands_sliderAs the only locally-based, non-profit provider in the valley, we have a passion for quality care because our patients are not just patients – they are friends, family, and neighbors.

This philosophy guides our practice and is evident throughout the programs and services we provide. We have served hundreds of patients and we would like to share some of the reasons they have chosen home health care.

  • *Home care is an efficient, economical form of health care.
  • *Studies show patients recover faster in the comfort of their own home.
  • *Registered Nurses plan and direct your nursing care with your physician’s guidance.
  • *HomeCare team members instruct you or a family member on your care so you can become independent more quickly.
  • *Consulting Dieticians are available for those whose care requires a change in diets.
  • *Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists are available for rehabilitation and can provide instruction on how to adapt to physical limitations.

Medicare, Medicaid, and most all private insurances provide coverage for skilled home health services. HomeCare of the Valley staff will work with all insurances to obtain as much coverage as possible for home health services.

We are committed to serving patients regardless of their insurance. We can provide home health care in your home or at an assisted living facility.
