Health at Home

The best place to recover from an illness, injury or procedure is in the comfort of your own home. It is where you feel safest, the surroundings are familiar and where you spend the most time with family and friends.

For over 25 years, Southwoods Health’s focus has been on the needs of the communities it serves. We’ve continued to expand clinical offerings to ensure patients have access to the important care they need, while providing an exceptional patient experience. Southwoods Health is proud to offer a new service with that same focus in Southwoods Health at Home.

Southwoods Health at Home is skilled care delivered directly to you.

Home Health Care

Our goal is to provide you with expert care, the Southwoods Way, offering compassionate support, encouragement and genuine peace of mind for you and your family.

Services are available to anyone who needs it, can be requested by patients, family members or a physician, and you do not have to be in the hospital to make the request. Patients at home or those being cared for in an outpatient setting, such as an emergency room or doctor’s office, may also be eligible. Although anyone can make the request, services must be ordered by a physician.

Benefits

Our team serves as a single point of contact, collaborating with your physicians to establish a course of treatment while guiding you and your family through options and processes. Treatment plans are tailored to each patient’s individual needs and family members are encouraged to be active participants in the planning process, assisting with setting goals and working with our staff for your benefit.

Our Services

Our dedicated registered nurses educate patients and their families on the patient’s condition and teach them how to manage it. They assess the patient’s health, monitor vitals, help oversee treatments, administer medications and work directly with your physicians, communicating and actively managing patient care together.

Our physical and occupational therapists work to help increase strength and mobility, reduce pain, regain function and restore or improve the ability to perform everyday tasks. Our speech therapists are responsible for the assessment and treatment of speech, language, swallowing, cognitive and voice disorders.

Therapy may be ordered after joint replacement procedures, neurological conditions, orthopaedic injuries, nerve-related conditions or to improve a patient’s balance, flexibility and strength.

  • Physical Therapy
    Physical Therapists offer training to prevent falls, perform home safety assessments, and offer assistance with learning to use equipment such as walkers or wheelchairs.
  • Occupational Therapy
    Occupational Therapists use treatments to develop, recover or maintain functions of daily living. Their goal is to improve the ability to perform tasks at home.
  • Speech Therapy
    Speech Therapists use multiple techniques in their treatment program to help remedy speaking or swallowing challenges.

Our home health aides can help the patient with basic personal needs, such as bathing, getting out of bed, dressing and ensuring safety in the home.

Social work services are available related to an illness or injury if you’re receiving skilled care. Services include counseling for social or emotional concerns, and connecting patients and families to community resources to help the patient in their recovery.
