No Place Like Home
Need more care after a hospitalization, injury or illness? Lake Regional Home Health can help you recover within the comfort and convenience of your home.
It takes a team.
Our home health team includes physicians, nurses, aides ,rehab therapists, social workers and dieticians. We work with you and your family members to support you as you regain your health. The plan of care is very individualized . Your services may include:
- Skilled nursing
- Physical therapy
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Home health aide
- IV therapy
- Wound care
- Post surgical care
- Medical social services
- Patient/caregiver education
All home care is 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 present. Our home health team uses visits to teach the patient, family member, or other care giver about managing dressings, medications, IVs and therapy.
You qualify for home health if all of the following are true:
- An illness or injury has left you with a health need that requires care from a registered nurse or rehabilitation therapist
- You are homebound.
- It is safe for you to receive care at home
- Your physician has ordered home health services
Home health costs often are covered by private health insurance programs, Medicare, Medicaid, veterans' insurance, workers' compensation and automobile insurance. For more information on Medicaid and Medicare coverage, click the links below.
