GETTING STARTED

  • Remember, federal law states that you have the right to choose your home health agency.
  • Once the physician sends us an order, our nurse will contact you within the same day to set an appointment.

  • We will communicate with your Primary Care Provider regarding your care and updates about your progress.
  • Visits from your Home Health team are based on;
    • Your individual needs
    • Your doctor’s orders
  • And your progression of meeting goals
