Home Health Services
Patients and their families welcome the opportunity to remain in their
home while recovering from an illness or adapting to a change in health
status. Home Health Care provides services to individuals who are homebound
(unable to leave home without an effort) and require intermittent skilled
care as certified by a physician.
Whether you have just been released from the hospital or have been dealing
with a new medical condition, Redlands Community Hospital has developed
comprehensive home care services. Examples of skilled needs are: instructions
on diabetic management, follow-up care after surgery, stroke rehabilitation,
wound and ostomy care.
Home care is exactly that. Care in the home. We serve an area about 30
miles radius from the hospital. That includes Cherry Valley to the East,
Fontana to the West; Riverside to the South and Highland and low mountains
to the North.
A team of health care professionals develops a plan of care personalized
to meet individual medical needs as determined by a physician. Registered
Nurses may assess patient status, provide skilled care and instruct care
givers. Physical Therapists offer rehabilitative services such as home
exercise programs and teach the safe use of equipment (walkers, canes,
etc.). Speech Therapists assist with swallowing difficulties and speech
exercises. Occupational Therapists further assist in activities of daily
living. Medical Social Workers are available to help with community resources
and long range planning. Home Health Aides may provide personal care intermittently.
We want to help you stay in your own home as you progress to wellness.
Our team works together with your home care provider to provide the assessment,
treatment, therapy, and rehabilitation that will get you back to yourself again.
Home Health Care may be initiated by an order from the patient’s
physician, discharge planner or care manager. A skilled nurse or therapist
will evaluate the appropriateness of care. Home Health Services are paid
for by Medicare, Medi-Cal, and many other HMO insurances.
