Home Health Services
Our goal is to help patients stay as safe, healthy and independent as possible in their own homes. Whether referred by a physician or by calling Home Health United directly, our staff will help you determine the services that meet your needs.
The patient is the focus of our home care team. Our team offers a wide range of services to meet almost any health care need from pediatrics to geriatrics. The physician plays an integral role in the home care team of Home Health United. From the information the patient and physician provide, our staff create a plan of care to help meet health care goals and facilitate recovery. We'll then recommend services to meet those needs and help you obtain any medical equipment necessary. We also explore funding options and additional support needed.
Our staff are carefully screened and trained so patients feel comfortable, safe and secure as they care for you in the home. Visits are usually scheduled in advance and according to the patient’s needs. We are Medicare and Medicaid certified and are members of the National Association for Homecare and Hospice, National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, and the Visiting Nurse Associations of America.
Here is what the physician contributes to home care:
- Determines eligibility for home care
- Authorizes initial assessment for home care
- Collaborates with the inter-disciplinary team to develop the 'Plan of Care'
- Authorizes medical necessity of services and treatments
- Communicates to the team changes in condition, or Plan of Care, throughout the treatment period
- Works with the team to enable the patient to remain in their home whenever possible
- Continues to assess patient at regular intervals throughout the treatment period
- Participates in discharge planning

What our patients are saying about us
"Sue was so encouraging and confident taking the time needed with me. Listening, being informative, assisting me with her skills and knowledge, to recover not only physically, but psychologically as a patient and a person. And her best medicine was always a smile and a hug. Sue was dedicated. The summer of ’08 was the summer of great rains and floods, but she always made her way to my house to take care of me, even when her own home had gotten flooded out."
