Thayer County Health Services’ Heartland Home Health provides healthcare services in the home to patients who, because of illness or injury, need more care than is available on an outpatient basis, but do not necessarily need hospitalization.
Home Health services are beneficial to patients who need more recovery time, additional monitoring or therapy after being dismissed from the hospital. It often allows patients to remain at home rather than being placed in an interim care facility. Many patients benefit from home care simply by being with loved ones in familiar surroundings. Family members and caregivers are provided with hands-on instruction regarding care and diet, and are given the emotional support they need to understand and cope with a disease or condition.
