What is Home Health?

Nurse providing home health services

Home health enables you to live as independently as possible while recovering from illness, surgery or managing a chronic condition. Our services are covered by many insurance plans and may be covered 100 percent by Medicare benefits.

We know that having a caregiver in your home requires trust. Our nurses, therapists, social workers and home health aides complete a thorough onboarding process to ensure you receive professional care.
