Home Health Services

Being able to recover from an illness or adapt to a new health status in the comfort of home is ideal for patients and their families. If you are homebound and require physician-certified care, our home health services in Redlands are there for you.

No matter the stage of your condition, RCH provides comprehensive home care. Our team can give instructions on diabetic management, post-surgery, wound and ostomy care, stroke rehabilitation and many other skills. Our service area includes patients within 30 miles of the hospital, such as Cherry Valley (East), Fonatana (West), Riverside (South), Highland (North).

We will work with you and a physician to develop a personalized care plan best suited to your needs. Your team may include:

  • Registered nurses, to assess patient status, provide skilled care and instruct other caregivers
  • Physical therapists, to offer rehabilitative services such as home exercise programs and instruction on safe equipment use (walkers, canes, etc.)
  • Speech therapists, to assist with swallowing difficulties and speech exercises
  • Occupational therapists, to assist with daily living activities
  • Medical social workers, to assist with community resources and long-term planning
  • Home health aides, to provide intermittent personal care

Team members work together with your home care provider to keep your recovery at home with assessment, treatment, therapy and rehabilitation.

Physicians, discharge planners or care managers may initiate home health care, while a skilled nurse or therapist will evaluate its appropriateness. These services are paid for by Medicare, Medi-Cal and many other HMO insurances.
