Home health care is the process of caring for our patients in the comfort of their own home when outside medical facilities are not needed. Using skilled Nurses, Medical Social Services, Home Health Aides coupled with Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy allow for the care for our patients within the comfort of their home.
Skilled Nursing is provided by a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) under the supervision of an RN. The nurse works in conjunction with the patient’s physician, carrying out orders and ordering supplies needed.
