Is home health right for you?

If you or a loved one has a health condition that makes leaving home a challenge, our clinicians can come to you. Whether you have a chronic condition or you’re recovering from injury or surgery, we will work with your physician to develop a plan of care that helps you manage your condition and meet your individual health goals. For people over 65 who qualify, home health care may be available at no cost though Medicare or other insurance.

Specialized care for better results

Keeping Hearts at Home is a multidisciplinary approach to heart and lung care that does more than address exacerbations and post-acute care. We meet you where you are and show you how to make manageable adjustments in areas such as nutrition and mobility that can have long-term effects on your overall health.

We specialize in helping you manage heart- and lung-related conditions such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiac bypass surgery, heart attack, hypertension and pneumonia.

Our cardiopulmonary program builds on our existing cardiac services and places added focus on the management of symptoms for heart- and lung-related conditions such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiac bypass surgery, heart attack, hypertension and pneumonia.

Our clinicians use a portable, noninvasive monitoring technology called MyNICaSthat gives clinicians a clear picture of your cardiovascular health. Using this technology, we can identify heart and blood flow fluctuations up to two weeks before you might typically start to notice a change in how you feel. This means we can proactively track, monitor and adjust treatment to avoid exacerbations and reduce unnecessary trips to the emergency room. As you begin to see how your heart and circulation respond to treatment, it encourages you to adopt behaviors that lead to long-term health. This can include things as simple as eating a healthy diet and taking the proper medication. It’s a powerful technology we use to help you take charge of your heart health.

Healing wounds is an essential step in the rehabilitation process for many patients. PRIME Wound Care is our comprehensive approach to the prevention, intervention and management of your wounds. Our wound care team will assess your injury, including where you are in the healing process, and develop a plan of care specifically for you.

Unlike traditional balance dysfunction programs, our Safe Strides® program takes a multidisciplinary approach to find and focus on the root of balance issues. Our care teams evaluate your visual acuity as well as your vestibular, somatosensory and musculoskeletal systems to discover and address critical factors contributing to your fall risk.

Our innovative orthopedic program delivers postoperative care for joint replacement and other orthopedic conditions in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home. Our multidisciplinary care approach is designed to increase your mobility and help you recover as fast as your treatment allows. In this way, we help you maintain your independence and get you back to doing the things you love sooner.

Our team has designed a specialty program for patients experiencing new or exacerbated neurological conditions. This evidence-based program is built to support your individual needs and health goals, and our therapists collaborate closely with you, your family and your physician to develop the best care treatment plan for you. The most common neurological diagnoses we treat include Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, neuromuscular disorders and Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Through our Low Vision program, clinicians help you maximize the use of your existing vision to improve your quality of life and avoid functional complications, including falls and unplanned visits to the hospital.

Our specially trained clinicians and social workers understand the unique needs of people with Alzheimer’s and dementia and ensure every person they care for is treated with dignity. It is a core part of our commitment to providing the highest-quality compassionate care for the people we serve. Our memory care program specifically focuses on educating and supporting caregivers to ensure ongoing success.

Through Zōntago®, our clinicians formulate structured, progressive activities that help you improve your capacity and ability to be active. We’ll tailor your program to your individual interests and help you reach your personal goals.
