What is Home Health Care? 

...It's skilled nursing care and other health care services provided in your home...

People are now being discharged from hospitals sooner with more critical, sensitive, and vital problems. Phillips County Home Health Agency can help patients, families, and caregivers with the transition from hospital care to home care. 

We work with the physician, following a strict Code of Ethics, and the client to arrange an appropriate level of nursing assistance. 

We accept payment from third party payers (Medicare, Medicaid, or Private Insurance).

If you do not meet qualifications set by Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance for home health, you have the choice to receive services at an affordable rate via private pay. 

Why is Home Health Care Important?

...Because it may be the best type of care for you...

Advantages of Home Health Care include: 

• Privacy

 Personal care in your own home

• Convenience

No transportation problems, less disruption of schedules

• Comfort

There's no place like home

• Shorter Recovery

In general, people recover more quickly at home

• Lower Cost

Often much lower than care in the Hospital or Nursing Home
