Lake Regional Home Health provides quality care for people of all ages within the comfort and convenience of their own home. Home health care requires a team effort. Physicians, nurses, aides, rehab therapists, social workers, dietitians and family members provide patients with an effective treatment plan for a safe, positive recovery.
All home care is considered intermittent care. That means that the patient, a family member or other caregiver must be able to provide necessary care during the hours that a Home Health staff member is not in the home.
The goal of Home Health is that the skilled professional comes into the home to teach the patient, family member or other caregiver in the handling of dressings, medication, I.V.s, etc. The plan of care is very individualized.
- Skilled Nursing
- Medical/Social Worker
- Certified Home Health Aides

- Speech Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Patient/Caregiver Education
You qualify for home health services if the following criteria have been met.
