More than 11 million Americans receive home-delivered health care from home health care providers.  "Allowing people to heal at home is truly a privilege for us," said Katy LaBauve, Regional Operations Manager.  "Home Care professionals and modern medicine make it possible for people to stay in their homes, regardless of their condition."

Through technological advances, home-delivered care has grown far beyond basic professional nursing and home care aid services.  Today's modern home care agency offers a wealth of nursing, physical, occupational, speech therapies, medical social worker, dietary, laboratory, x-ray, medical equipment and home medical supplies, and personal care.

Our exclusive Philips Lifeline program is a leading medical alert service designed to reduce the risk of living alone. In the event of a fall or emergency, you can press your Lifeline Personal Help Button which connects you to a trained Lifeline associate who can send help quickly. And this service is offered at no charge to all of our qualified patients while under our care.

Home care services are paid for by public and private sources, or directly by patients and their families.
