Home Health Care

Highest Medicare Star Rating in Gallatin County!

What is Home Health?

If you have experienced a recent hospitalization, surgery or debilitating illness, home health care nurses and therapists will come to your home. Visits are based on a schedule predetermined by your needs and recommendations of your health care team.

Home health nurses and therapists keep in touch with your physician. They become the link to your physician so that he or she knows how you are doing without you being required to go to an office or clinic. Our nurses and therapists will communicate with your doctor directly should you require additional care or attention. Is home health for you?
