Exceptional Physical Therapist who showed patience, kindness and pathways to help me recover and walk again after surgery.

Peggy F. May 23, 2019

I was extremely ill, and was very apprehensive of having a caregiver in my home. I loved meeting with your case manager … So sweet and helpful. My caregiver was not only sweet, easy to speak with, and she addressed all of my issues. Everyone I interacted with were kind and made me feel comfortable and taken care of. The help I received from from Salus was impeccable. I thank you so very much! I’m on the mend! Thank you! With love,

What is Home Health?

What is Home Health?

Hospitalizations and more advanced medical care are sometimes necessary when a person is faced with an acute or chronic illness or an injury. During this time in life, the help of skilled doctors, nurses and other medical professionals is essential to resolve the concern and move a patient toward recovery. Once that period of recovery arrives, many patients prefer to return home as soon as possible and avoid a stay in a rehabilitative care facility. Salus Homecare offers a variety of home health options to provide these individuals with the care and support they need to safely and comfortably recover at home.

Long term home health care is appropriate for anyone with a chronic health condition that they struggle to properly manage on their own. Skilled and licensed nursing staff come to the home on a regular basis to provide medical support and continued evaluation for setbacks or improvements.

Short term home health care is frequently prescribed when a person is discharged home following a hospitalization or needs temporary support with a medical condition. Our qualified case managers work with your physician and hospital discharge planner to ensure your doctor’s orders are followed and medical support is appropriate and beneficial.

Therapeutic services are often prescribed to enhance the recovery process and help patients overcome challenges. These programs help to improve mobility, increase independence and teach new skills that support safety and independence.

Who Benefits from Home Health Services?

Who Benefits from Home Health Services?

Home health care is available for anyone who has a prescribed need for medical support long-term or short-term. It is most often prescribed following a hospital discharge, but at times, doctors will also advise home health to assist with managing a chronic health condition such as Parkinson’s, COPD, Alzheimer’s, a traumatic brain injury or diabetes.

Who Pays For Home Health Services?

Who Pays For Home Health Services?

Home health care is often covered by Medicare and many private insurance plans as long as your doctor prescribes care as medically necessary. When a condition does require a family to self-pay, the flexibility of Salus Homecare home health care often makes it easier for individuals to budget appropriately and pay only for the services they need and only for the period of time that they need services. This makes essential home health more cost effective than most long term care or rehabilitative care facilities.

Home Health FAQs

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

Salus Homecare employs registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, medical social workers and skilled physical, occupational and speech therapists. All of our employees undergo an extensive hiring process that includes background checks and reference checks, and they are mandated to participate in ongoing training to remain up-to-date on the latest health care advancements.

While many of our home health care clients do come to us after a hospital discharge, it is not necessary. We also receives referrals from primary care physicians and specialists on a regular basis.

Salus Homecare’s home health is for anyone. Whether an adult is returning home after a serious car accident, a senior is trying to manage his diabetes or a college student has been diagnosed with a chronic medical condition, our skilled nursing and therapy services provide the appropriate level of care in the comfort of home.

Home care nurses are skilled professionals with expertise in specific medical tasks. While they can assist with some ADLs during a visit, their time will mostly be devoted to meeting your medical needs. If you require regular assistance with tasks that are outside of their normal duties, Salus Homecare can supplement your care with in home aide services.

This is a personal decision, and the right answer varies for many reasons. When deciding where you would like to go after a hospitalization, think about your goals. If they include aging in place, home health care might be the right solution for you. While many facilities offer high quality care, keep in mind that only home health care provides individualized, completely customized care in the privacy of home. For many, this means more time with family and a decreased financial burden especially when dealing with a chronic medical condition.

Salus Homecare’s home health team understands the importance of continuity of care, and the only way that we can ensure our clients benefit from it is by reaching out to their current care providers. As part of your initial assessment, our care manager will contact your doctor, hospital discharge planner and social worker to ask for recommendations and input. Together, and in collaboration with you and your family, we will use this information to devise an appropriate plan of care that meets all of your needs.

At Salus Homecare, our goal is to help you to relax and focus on your recovery. When it comes to coordinating schedules of multiple workers, we do all of the work and ensure that the professionals who enter your home come at a time that is convenient for you. Once you are our client, should you ever need to adjust the schedule or accommodate for an emergency, our care managers remain on call to assist.

Yes. Our Salus Homecare’s skilled nurses provide family education. There are many tasks that your loved ones can assist with, and there are even some that you may be able to perform independently.

Salus Homecare never requires our customers to sign a contract. We also do not charge any fees for canceling your services.
