Home Health Services | How We Can Help

Our goal is to help you feel your best and learn how to manage your health conditions to remain as independent as possible.

Skilled Nursing

Highly trained skilled nurses will coordinate your care needs with you and your physician. Nurses will work with your and your family to identify and address your goals and to teach you how to manage your diagnosis and prevent complications. Nurses will also assist you or your family to learn skilled techniques such as dressing changes, home infusion, and identification of warning signs.

Physical & Occupational Therapy

Physical and Occupational Therapy will instruct and assist with exercises to regain movement, strength and increase safety in the home. Adaptive equipment or our fall prevention program may be just the solution to enhance independence and peace of mind. Our therapists always work with you at a pace tailored to meet your needs and goals.

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy will include exercises to regain and strengthen speech skills as well as swallow retraining. Speech therapists can also help you increase your cognitive skills.

Medical Social Services

Medical Social Services will help with social and emotional concerns related to your illness or help finding resources in your community.

Home Health Aides

A specially trained, experienced Home Health Aide, under the supervision and direction of the Registered Nurse, will provide needed personal care services such as bathing, assistance with grooming, dressing, or simple meal preparation.

Personalized Plan of Care

Collaborating closely with family members and caregivers, we craft a personalized plan of care for every patient receiving hospice or palliative care with Village Home Health and Hospice. We offer our patients an individualized care plan to manage symptoms, control pain and ease anxiety when they have chosen not to continue more aggressive treatments. Our shared goal is to ensure thoughtful and caring attention to every aspect of our patients' physical, emotional, social and spiritual selves.
