What services does Home Health offer, and who provides them?
Registered nurses – Registered nurses provide skilled care, teaching and treatment under health care providers’ plans of care. They keep providers informed of patients’ conditions and consult with them about changes in treatment. They teach patients self-care and show family members home care skills. Nurses also coordinate other home care services. Some of our nurses have special training in pain management and wound care.
Medical social workers – Medical social workers can help you and family members with personal, family, work-related and financial problems that may occur because of your illness or disability. They may be beneficial in helping you adjust to living in a new environment, such as a relative’s home or nursing home. They also can help you obtain services from community resources.
Physical therapists – Under health care providers’ orders, physical therapists work with patients to relieve joint and muscle pain, and help them gain strength and coordination through exercises and other treatments.
Speech/language pathologists – Speech/language pathologists help patients regain language and communication skills, and oral and facial functions such as swallowing.
