Who is Eligible?
To be eligible for Medicare-covered home health care you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be under a physician's care and the physician must order the services.
  • You must require a skilled, intermittent service such as skilled nursing care, physical therapy, or speech therapy.
  • You must be homebound due to an illness or injury which make it difficult for you to leave your home without assistance.
  • If you do not have Medicare, many of our services are covered through Medicaid.
  • If you are unsure if you are covered for home health, please feel free to contact one of our knowledgeable staff members to assist you.

Registered Nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) provide skilled services that cannot be performed safely and effectively by nonprofessional personnel, which includes the following:

  • Comprehensive Nursing Assessment
  • Education on Disease Treatment and Prevention
  • Wound Care
  • Intravenous Administration to include Antibiotic Infusion and Care

Physical Therapists (PTs) work to restore the mobility and strength of patients who are limited or disabled by physical injuries through the use of exercise, massage, and other methods. PTs often alleviate pain and restore injured muscles with specialized equipment. They also teach patients and caregivers special techniques for walking and transfer.

Occupational Therapists (OTs) help individuals who have physical, developmental, social, or emotional problems that prevent them from performing the general activities of daily living (ADLs). OTs instruct patients on using specialized rehabilitation techniques and equipment to improve their function in tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing, and basic household routines.

Clinical Social Workers evaluate the social and emotional factors affecting ill and disabled individuals and provide counseling. They also help patients and their family members identify available community resources. Social workers often serve as case managers when patients' conditions are so complex that professionals need to assess medical and supportive needs and coordinate a variety of services.

Home Health Aides (HHA) assist patients with ADLs such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, toileting, and dressing. Some aides have received special training and are qualified to provide more complex services under the supervision of a nursing professional.
