Our staff delivers care under the direction of the patient's primary physician and develops an individualized plan of care. This team approach guarantees the best specialty care for each patient.

Effective communication and open dialogue with our physicians also assist in your recovery and healing process.

Speech Therapy

Our speech therapy programs help and guide our clients to develop the skills needed for successful communication. These skills can affect all aspects of daily life, from communicating basic needs, to developing social skills and friendships to progressing in school. 

Anodyne Therapy

Patients looking for a non-invasive treatment alternative to drugs for pain and poor circulation can also receive the benefit of infrared and heat therapy treatment in the comfort of home with our effective and affordable Anodyne® Therapy home systems.

Ultra Sound Therapy

Ultrasound is a physical therapy modality used to reduce pain. Sound waves are used to generate heat in a particular area of the body. The heat will help to loosen tissue, in effort to respond better to strengthening and stretching exercises. The heat will also improve blood circulation around joints, to reduce pain from inflammation or irritation. Ultrasound is generally used in acute injuries, or for tight muscles. 

Medical Social Services

Medical Social Workers play a vital role in the care team. After a patient is admitted to Home Health or Hospice Services, a Medical Social Worker may conduct an assessment to help determine patient needs and identify any limitations, barriers, or safety issues that might impede recovery, educate patients and families regarding community resources and support, and assist with long range planning, including advance care planning and directives, and overall care opportunities.

Our Medical Social Workers work with the patients and families to keep patients at home in a safe and healthy environment.

Dietician

Our primary goal is to improve or maintain the nutrition and hydration status of individuals in the home health setting by supporting the patient and the family with education and training based on common nutrition goals of the patient and physician.

Home Health Aide

We provide skilled nursing for wound care, injections, post hospital teaching and examinations in addition to a variety of nursing services in the privacy of your home.
