What You Pay

NOTHING-IT'S FREE!

Here For You - Home Health

Our nurses will visit your home when you first enter the program.  They will provide the equipment and information necessary to make the transition.  Our communications network serves as a bridge to keep you and everyone involved in your treatment informed.

Participate In a Research Study

  • You will be randomized, much like the flip of a coin, to the control group or interventional group.
  • Both groups receive home health care as ordered by your physician.
  • Both groups receive education materials about CHF and instruction about medications and emergency care.
  • Both groups will be contacted about their satisfaction with the care they received.
  • The interventional group will be followed by the Call Center for several months and may receive monitoring equipment such as scales for a period of time.

THERE IS NO COST TO YOU FOR THESE SERVICES.

All Day, All Night

-"On Call" Nursing

Your "On Call" registered nurse will pick up when you're ready to move on from home health.  Our "On Call" nurses will call you on a regular basis to review your progress while also remaining available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  They will also provide timely interaction among all your medical caregivers.
