Have you considered that home health care may be the answer to your particular needs? Home care includes a range of medical, social, assistive and other services provided in an individual’s home when a person needs follow-up care after a hospital visit or requires long term care.
The Certified Home Health Agency at Sullivan County Public Health is ready to provide you with many of the health services you need, right in your own home. Our agency provides a range of medical, social, assistive and other services provided in your home when you or your loved one needs care.
Whether the health care you need is short or long term, basic or more complex, home health care is something to be considered. These comprehensive services are provided by nurses, therapists, home health aides and other direct-care staff under the direction of a physician’s order. The focus of these patient-centered services includes prevention, recuperation, and/or an alternative to higher-cost institutional care that would otherwise be provided in a hospital or nursing facility.
Generally, home care services are appropriate whenever a person prefers to stay at home, or is homebound, but needs ongoing care.
Patients receiving home care include: newborns and mothers eligible for maternal infant care services; young children and adults in need of at-home therapy or advanced technology-based care and support; elderly patients who benefit from the services of a skilled nurse to help treat chronic medical conditions; patients receiving wound care following surgery; or individuals with disabilities who may be homebound and require assistive services to meet activities of daily living, such as feeding, bathing, and other forms of self-care.
Sullivan County Public Health is the sole Certified Home Health Agency in the county. We provide a wide range of health and social services to persons recovering from an illness or injury, or persons who are disabled and/or chronically ill.
We accept commercial insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and sliding scale fees.
REFERRALS ARE ACCEPTED FROM: Self/Family, Physicians, Nursing Homes, Hospital Discharge Planning, Rehabilitation Centers and Community Agencies.
