    What Is Home Care?

    Home care offers a variety of services to patients in their homes or places of residence. Home care services include skilled nursing and rehabilitation through home health, non-medical personal home care assistance and in-home physician care.

    Home Health

    Home health can help patients transition home after a hospital stay, and can also be ordered by your doctor if there is a change in your condition or medications. Home health visits (often occuring two or three times a week) are focused on helping you recover after an injury, illness or procedure. During the visits, your team teaches you about your condition, assists you with taking medications at the right time, in the right dose and helps you manage your condition. Home health can also help with your specific nutritional needs, reduce your fall risk and more.

    Types of services offered:

    • Therapy, such as physical, occupational and speech
    • Cardiac care
    • Fall prevention
    • Orthopedic care
    • Pulmonary care
    • Senior wellness programs
    • Skilled nursing
    • Social services
    • Stroke and brain injury care

    Can I Afford Home Health Care?

    Home health care services are covered 100% by Medicare and most forms of insurance. Part of the admissions process includes verification of insurance. Kindred can help answer your financial and insurance questions.

    Personal Home Care Assistance

    Sometimes you may need assistance at home with daily life and activities. That's where personal home care assistance comes in. This care may include personal hygiene assistance, meal preparation, transportation, companionship and respite care for caregivers who need time to run errands or just take time to rest and recharge.

    In-Home Physician Care

    An injury or chronic illness can make it difficult to attend doctors' appointments outside the home. In-home physician care provides primary, specialty and urgent care services in the comfort of your own home or in an assisted living or independent living facility. Your care team could be made up of physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
