Last year, Excela Health home care specialists made 125,000 visits to more than 7,000 patients, delivering the services the doctor specified, and doing it in the comfort and privacy of the patient’s own home. Highly trained nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists, medical social workers and home health aides work together to make certain you get the best care possible on a convenient schedule. For patients recovering from surgery or an illness, home care not only may eliminate a return to the hospital and the need to travel for medical attention, it may actually shorten recovery times.
Home care is not just for seniors; patients of any age can take advantage of the wide range of services. And much of the care is paid for by insurers, including Medicare and Medicaid.
Our services run the gamut -- skilled nursing care, including intravenous therapy, wound and ostomy care; chemotherapy; injections; urinary catheter care; medication management, and education. We help with technology, too, such as ventilator support, management and education. Additionally, home safety assessments, follow-up care for moms and new babies, and feeding therapy and nutritional guidance can be part of an individual’s personalized program.
Your doctor can refer you for services or you can get a referral from a nurse, social worker, social service agency or insurance company.
When getting well is your primary concern, the best place to do it may be at home. Excela Health home care has the team of experienced professionals who can help make it easier.
