Your Physician’s Role
Your physician plays a key role in developing your special home health care program. Your physician also reviews the Plan of Care periodically to ensure that your current healthcare needs are being met.
Your Role in Your Care
Patient Education is an important part of your care.
The Home Health Services staff of nurses, therapists, social workers, and home health aides will work with you to find ways to help you feel better, manage your chronic illness, or recover sooner. They can answer your questions about medication or symptom management, therapeutic regimens, and better nutrition. They are your personal “team”!
As the leader of your care team, you should feel free to participate in decisions about your care, ask questions, and make suggestions. After all, no one knows you as well as you do!

You Should Also Know That…
Patients need no prior hospitalization to qualify for home health care.

If home health care is not indicated, your physician is consulted, and he or she may refer you to another community agency or service.

Forms And Other Information
Telemonitoring Program is when equipment is set up in the privacy and comfort of their home to monitor daily vital signs by a Registered Nurse. This program is ideal for clients with chronic illness, unstable conditions, and congestive heart failure.
Medication Monitoring and Personal Medication Dispenser (PMD) is when one of our Registered Nurses can come to their home to review and organize medications and develop a medication management plan to fit your needs. We can also set up an in-home PMD machine that dispenses medication automatically at the right time and right dosage to reduce the risk of missed or double doses.
