Home health care provides medical treatment for an illness or injury, with the goal of helping patients recover, regain their independence and become as self-sufficient as possible. Amedisys Home Health Care offers health care services such as skilled nursing, home health aides, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. It also provides specialized services including access to personal emergency response systems.
Amedisys Home Health Care works to help make hospital visits shorter and less frequent with skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and chronic disease management for patients recovering from surgery or illness, or living with a chronic disease like diabetes or COPD.
Amedisys provides at-home care based on doctor’s orders, and works closely with patients’ physicians to coordinate all aspects of care. Home health care must be ordered by a physician and patients must meet certain requirements to be eligible. Home health services are covered by Medicare and many private insurers.
Amedisys uses the most current medical evidence to develop its clinical and patient education, and plans for patient care. Experienced clinicians and therapists provide services to patients throughout the state.
