Home Health Services

Methodist’s professional, committed approach to healing extends past our doors and into the homes of patients who require continued care. In many cases, healing and recovery can be best achieved in comfortable and familiar surroundings.

Each home health patient is evaluated by our specially trained Home Health Services team, and an individualized personal care plan created. Our licensed and/or certified professional staff provides specialized care under the direction of the patient’s physician.

During each home visit, our expert staff assesses the patient’s condition and provides physician-prescribed treatments. Throughout the care process, the patient, family or other caregiver are kept well-informed. Working together, we help patients attain the highest level of independence possible:
