We know home health

At Encompass Health, our teams have deep knowledge and experience in individualized patient care planning to establish a just-right care plan and patient education to provide high-quality home health care.

Our home health segment leads the industry in lowering hospital readmissions for patients within the first 30 days of discharge and is nationally recognized for our quality of care and patient experience.

Our services

Skilled nursing

Our highly skilled nurses have extensive knowledge in treating and educating patients in the home setting. We offer a wide range of skilled nursing services in areas such as disease-specific management and education for conditions like heart failure, COPD, diabetes and orthopedic rehabilitation. We also assist in medication management and administration, and provide dietary and nutrition management.

Physical therapy

Our physical therapists help patients improve and restore their physical function and mobility levels at home. Physical therapy can help patients who have difficulty walking, trouble balancing, require the use of adaptive equipment or need rehabilitation post-operatively.

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on improving patients’ ability to perform activities of daily living. With the help of our occupational therapists, home health patients are able to maximize their fine motor skills and regain physical strength to help them accomplish daily tasks.

Speech therapy

Speech therapy focuses on helping patients maximize their skills and abilities to live independently. Our speech language pathologists are experts in oral and motor cognition and help patients improve their swallowing, mental processing and language skills.

Medical social work

Our social workers assess the social and emotional factors affecting each patient and their loved ones, and then assist in coordinating available community resources and short-term counseling.

Home health aides

Our home health aides are trained to assist patients with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, grooming and taking vital signs. Under the supervision of our nurses and therapists, home health aides also support certain medical care activities like taking a patient’s pulse or blood pressure.
