Home Healthcare

At LHC Group, we believe that all healthcare is local. Across the nation, communities large and small depend on us to consistently deliver high-quality care for themselves and for the people they love most.

What is Home Healthcare?

Home health is focused on helping patients recover from illness, injury, a medical procedure, or manage a chronic illness – all in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.

Home health helps prevent unnecessary re-hospitalizations, helps patients maintain their independence, and improves health and quality of life.

LHC Group’s family of professional nurses, therapists, and home health aides are experienced in providing a full suite of home health services and programs designed to achieve the best possible outcome for you or your loved one. If you require skilled medical attention to achieve recovery or optimum health, consider the home health option – and rest assured that you are in good hands.

Skilled home health clinicians provide a wide range of services:
  • Medication management and education
  • Education on your disease or condition
  • Dietary and nutrition evaluation
  • Treatment progress monitoring
  • Help with mobility challenges and/or fall risk – and minimization of risk
  • Help managing chronic conditions (diabetes, COPD, etc.)
  • Other programs designed to hasten recovery and improve quality of life

The LHC Group Difference

We are about Person Centered care.

LHC Group’s home health teams are focused on delivering quality care at a personal level. We get to know the people we serve, and design our care around each patient’s specific needs. The local communities we serve – and the patients and families who are our neighbors – are the top priority in everything we do.

We Care About People

Because people are far more than their medical conditions.

We are about Person Centered care. That means knowing the people we serve, understanding their needs, and tailoring healthcare to ensure the best journey possible.

We Provide the Best Care Available

And are passionately committed to making it better every day.

We lead the industry in quality ratings but that is not enough for us. We’re committed to establishing a new standard of clinical excellence and outstanding service in all we do.

We Embrace the Communities We Serve

Because the best care happens in the context of strong relationships.

We empower our clinicians and staff to build the kind of relationships in our communities that ensure quality, consistency, and stability in all that we do.

What Does Home Healthcare Cost?

Medicare and/or Medicaid will cover the cost of home healthcare services for patients over 65 who meet either program’s eligibility requirements. Private insurance companies, managed-care organizations, and workers’ compensation plans may also pay for home health services.

U.S. veterans in the VA program living with a complex, chronic, or disabling disease with a short-term need for skilled services or assistance with activities of daily living may qualify for home healthcare benefits.
