The patient experience is at the core of everything we do at Encompass Health. We use a tailored approach when crafting each patient’s plan of care to specifically meet the needs of patients and their caregivers.
Recognizing the challenges patients face is the first step to achieving better outcomes. Our cutting-edge specialty programs provide skilled, effective care that helps home health patients actively manage their disease and maintain their independence.
Our Post-Operative Programs deliver protocol-driven, physician-specific care to surgical patients. We admit patients timely after discharge from a hospital or facility and provide home health services daily if needed. Our patient education begins prior to surgery so patients know what to expect throughout their recovery.
Aging, physical changes, health conditions and even medications can increase the risk of falls in the home. Our Balance & Fall Prevention Program assesses physical challenges like balance, flexibility, muscle strength and gait, and identifies potential hazards in the home to create an individualized care plan that significantly reduces fall risk.
Our cardiopulmonary programs care for patients with congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hypertension (HTN), and other heart and vascular diseases. We focus on patient education, self-management, medication management and compliance to achieve superior patient outcomes and reduce the need for emergency care.
Our Community Care Program helps patients living in assisted (ALF) or independent living facilities (ILF), as well as other residential care communities, delay or avoid moving to a more comprehensive facility such as a nursing home. We take a preventative approach to care by offering skilled nursing and therapy that allows patients to safely age in place.
Our Care Transitions Program ensures safe and effective transitions between care settings, such as a hospital or rehabilitation facility, to reduce readmissions and improve patient outcomes. We partner with discharge planners, perform on-site patient visits, obtain paperwork, schedule appointments and coordinate services to ensure all patient care needs are met.
Our Care Connections Program provides a seamless transition from home health to hospice care by empowering patients to remain in control of their healthcare decisions while at home surrounded by loved ones. Our goal is to reduce hospital readmissions and improve quality of life by providing compassionate care to those facing a terminal illness under the care of one company.
With locations across the U.S., we make it easy to find home health or hospice care near you.
