Home Health Services

Home health care is help at home when you need it most. Our specially trained staff will assist you with recovery from illness, injuries or childbirth in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Our staff is experienced in adult, geriatric, pediatric, post‑discharge newborn and NICU baby care. We provide communication to your physician regarding your progress so that changes in your care can be made as necessary.

Disease State Management Programs

AV Home Care has several disease specific programs that provide an additional level of education and understanding of your condition to you and your caregivers. These programs are specially designed for stroke, congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and diabetes.

Advantages to home health care include:

  • Potentially faster recovery time in home environment
  • Helps keep families together during a time of illness or recovery
  • Alleviated financial burden through reduced hospitalization costs

Access to Home Health Care

Anyone can request home health care services for a person who is unable to take care of their own medical needs. However, a physician must feel the service is necessary and beneficial for the patient and order the service to be provided.

A patient need not be hospitalized in order to be eligible for home health care. If you are interested in finding out more, contact our office at 661‑949‑5938 or your physician to discuss your needs and how we can help.
