What is Home Health Care?
Skilled Home Health Care is provided by Registered Nurses, and/or licensed Physical or Occupational Therapists to clients where they are most comfortable, in the privacy and security of their own homes. Most people need home health care for a short period of time following an illness, injury, hospitalization, or rehab stay to regain strength and to learn how to understand and manage new medical conditions. It can also be delivered as ongoing custodial or chronic care for people who need help in managing their long-term health conditions.
Good Shepherd’s Home Health Care agency has served clients on our Sauk Rapids campus and in surrounding communities (within 30-miles) since 1987. We provide Medicare-certified home health care to clients in the comfort, privacy, and security of their own homes. These services include skilled nursing, therapy, and assistance from home health aides.
Home health care services are a critical component in the success of our aging in place philosophy because they allow a person to stay in their own home for as long as safely possible ~ where you want to be!
