QUESTIONS ABOUT Home health Care?

Santé Home Health offers a personalized approach to your care plan delivering skilled clinical rehabilitation care all in the safety and comfort of your home.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about Home Health Care.

What is Home Health Care?

Home Health care assists patients recovering from an illness, medical condition or surgical procedure. Unlike short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation, a hospital stay is not required to be admitted for home health care. Sante Home Health coordinates the services your doctor orders and provides highly skilled clinical and therapy care in your home. Services include skilled nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, medical social workers, registered dieticians and home health aides. Specialized programming is available for those with COPD, pain, and congestive heart failure.

Why is it important to start or continue with Home Health services during COVID-19?
  • Your current medical conditions will not improve nor go away on their own. Quite the opposite is likely to happen.
  • Participating in home health services will decrease your rehospitalization risk, thereby keeping you at home where you have the least exposure to germs and viruses.
  • Our home health care offers superior quality, personalized care given by highly trained clinicians whose goal is to keep you safe while addressing your specific needs.
  • Unlike in the hospital, while you are being treated at home, you control your surroundings and can remain as functional and independent as possible. This provides a much higher sense of security and dignity.
  • Home health promotes healing and provides increased safety from infections.
  • Home health allows you to have targeted interventions that are crucial for improved health, strength and wellness.
  • We also provide education to yourself, loved ones and caregivers specific to your needs and diagnosis.
  • Tasks and activities are tailored to your specific home setup thereby increasing ease of skill mastery.

  • We continuously stay up to date with all guidance and recommendations of CDC and state and local health departments and are following their guidance.
