Home Services

Our Home Health and Hospice departments provide skilled care for our patients and their family members within their home setting, with licensed nurses on call 24 hours a day.

Home Health

Our home health agency provides assistance to you or your loved one during recovery from an illness, surgery, injury or long-term medical problem in the privacy, comfort and security of your home. Skilled nursing, behavioral health services and therapy (physical, occupational, speech) services are delivered in the home with the goals of improving health, regaining independence, becoming as self-sufficient as possible and/or maintaining the current condition or level of function. 

The home health program intends to improve quality of life and increase the patient’s strength, endurance and functional abilities. To qualify for home health services, a patient must meet the following criteria:

  • Be considered “homebound” based on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid guidelines
  • Require skilled care on a part-time or intermittent basis to improve, maintain, prevent or further slow the health condition
  • Be under the care of a doctor, who completes and documents an in-person visit

Our home health professionals have been recognized for their exceptional commitment to the patient experience. In 2019, they were named a Top Agency of the 2019 HomeCare Elite®, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. The home health team also received a five-star rating, on a one-to-five scale with five stars being the best, from the Medicare.gov Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems, which measures the experiences of people receiving home health care from Medicare-certified home health agencies.


Our Hospice Services are a compassionate, specialized healthcare service designed to care for terminally ill patients and their families at home or in a nursing facility. Our goal is to provide quality of life and assist with the patient’s physical, psychological and spiritual needs. The hospice team covers a large service area and has the ability to interact with patients within two to four hours of receiving the referral. 

The comprehensive program we offer includes:

  • Nursing Services: We have a nurse on call 24-hours a day that will visit your home or a nursing facility one-to-two times per week, or as needed.
  • Physician Management: Each patient may continue to see their personal physician. We also have a medical director that can serve as a back-up when needed.
  • Home Health Aide Services: Our home health aides will assist with personal care, such as bathing, and can provide homemaker services.
  • Hospice Volunteers: Trained and certified, our volunteers offer companionship and caregiver relief to patients and families.
  • Medications: Medications relating to the illness are paid for by our hospice services, in most cases.
  • Medical Equipment: Equipment needed by the patient is paid for by our hospice services, in most cases.
  • Dietary Counseling: Our nurses are trained to support nutritional needs and we have a dietitian available for consultations.
  • Respite Care: Our respite care provides caregivers time to rest by placing the patient into short-term inpatient care.
  • Medical Social Worker: We have social workers to assist patients and families with their emotional, financial and resource needs. They visit one-to-two times per month, or as needed.
  • Pastoral Services: Assisting patients and families with their spiritual needs, a clergy member visits one-to-two times per month, or as needed.
  • Bereavement Services: We have bereavement counselors and provide emotional support to families after death.
