Home Health Services
Home health services are offered through Methodist HomeCare, a member of LHC Group.
What is home health care?
Home health care is skilled medical care delivered in the comfort a patient's home. Trained medical professionals, working under the direct supervision of a patient's physician, provide home health services. Home health care includes a wide range of medical, social, and therapeutic treatments that help patients return to healthy and active lives.
Is home health care right for you?
Do you need help managing your medications?
Home health services teach you to safely take the right dosage at the right time and frequency. Home health care nurses can help you manage your medication schedule, and communicate with your doctor about how you're doing.
Do you need help understanding your disease or condition?
Home health care clinicians will give you the information you need to take charge of your health. This information can empower you to identify red flags and spot potential health issues early.
Are you making healthy food choices?
Home health care professionals can evaluate your pantry, provide nutrition management and offer dietary education.
Do you need your treatment progress monitored?
Home health staff help you follow your doctor's orders to speed your recovery.
Are you at risk for falls?
Home health care therapists can help you understand physical risks and limitations and coach you to be safe at home.
Home health providers help you stay connected.
At Methodist HomeCare qualified home health care patients have access to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with the convenient Philips Lifeline medical alert system*. This one-touch button device, worn as a pendant or wristband, connects home health patients to a certified Lifeline professional for immediate assistance.
Because a strong support system is an important part of healing, Methodist HomeCare offers patients free access to private, online care communities*. It takes just a few simple steps to create a secure, invitation-only website that allows you to involve loved ones in your recovery.
