Wounds and skin conditions

Caring for acute or chronic wounds, whether from a health condition, an illness or an injury, can be complex. When an underlying condition compromises this care or contributes to prolonged wound healing or an increased risk of a wound reoccurring, you may need specialized help.

How Therapy at Home Helps

Frequently asked questions

Home health is skilled clinical care ordered by a health care providerThese services might include things like nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy and are designed to help you manage your condition and regain your independence after illness, injury or surgery.  

Personal home care assistance involves non-clinical services, such as help around the house, transportation, bathing and light meal preparation. 

Personal home care is often needed alongside home health services, and we can help coordinate the two levels of care. A limited number of your personal home care hours may be covered by Medicare while you’re receiving clinical in-home care, but it’s generally paid separately or covered by private insurance or other government programs. 

Home health may be covered 100% by Medicare for those who qualify, and we accept most forms of insurance. Part of the admission process includes verification of insurance. Our team is happy to help answer your financial and insurance questions. You can contact us here.
