Home Health provides quality care in the comfort of your own home. If you or your loved one has recently experienced an injury or illness, Home Health can help shorten your hospital stay by relocating therapy to your home during your healing time.
Home Health also works with disabled individuals and those suffering from chronic conditions. A team of skilled and compassionate nurses, therapists, and aides are trained to help you regain your independence. Clinicians work one-on-one with the individual, and with the family members and caregivers.
Our services are available to clients who live in Oregon within 33 miles of Klamath Falls.
Research shows that when patients are able to recover in the privacy and flexibility of their own home, healing time is faster and more pleasant. Care is centered on familiar routines and adapted to the individual and their environment. Having family and pets nearby, and sleeping in their own bed, make Home Health an ideal alternative to hospital stays.
Providing care in your home can be much less expensive than the cost in an institutional setting. Home Health is a benefit provided by traditional Medicare at no additional charge. If you do not have insurance, rates for the services are affordable. Medicare Advantage plans and some private insurance companies may charge a co-pay.
Home Health consists of highly trained and compassionate nurses, therapists, and aides, who are all CPR certified. Medicare and private insurance cover:
Nursing - for procedures such as wound care, catheter care, education on disease management/prevention, medication, diet, and self-monitoring techniques.
Therapy – physical therapy and speech therapy for rehabilitation, home exercise programs and home safety evaluations.
Occupational therapy – Assistance with ADL’s (activities of daily living), assistive devices.
Home care aides – for personal care.
Medical social work – for community resources, economic and emotional problems.
Private Duty, also called personal support, is not a Medicare covered service thus clients who wish to stay in their own homes pay privately for the services including assistance with bathing, dressing, feeding and personal hygiene. (Some long term insurances may pay for this service. Check with your agent.)
Care plans that are customized to meet the individual needs:
Medication management – reminders, assistance, administration
Respite for caregivers
Flexible scheduling for all services
Around-the-clock nursing consultation
All services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a 2-hour minimum.
