Welcome to Pro Med Home Health

Every day since 2001 our excellent team of Pro Med Nurses, Therapists, Home Health Aides, and Medical Social Workers provide exceptional care to people of every age and stage of life.

Home care includes any professional support services that allow a person to live safely in their home. In-home care services can help someone who is aging and needs assistance to live independently, manage chronic health issues, recover from a medical setback, or has special needs or a disability. Professional caregivers such as nurses, aides, and therapists provide short-term or long-term care in the home, depending on a person’s needs. The care you need in the place you love.

Home care can be the key to achieving the highest quality of life possible. It can enable safety, security, and increased independence, ease management of an ongoing medical condition, help avoid unnecessary hospitalization and aid with recovery after an illness, injury, or hospital stay—all through care given in the comfort and familiarity of home. Home care can include:

  • Help with daily activities such as dressing and bathing
  • Assistance with safely managing tasks around the house
  • Companionship
  • Therapy and rehabilitative services
  • Short- or long-term nursing care for an illness, disease, or disability—including tracheostomy and ventilator care

Types of Home Health Services

Not all home care providers offer all the different types of home care services. This will provide an overview of the different types of home care. Care is customized to your individual needs and may include services from one or more of the types described. Contacting Pro Med Home Health to discuss your needs will help determine what care is best for you.

While the multiple types of home care may serve different needs, they share a common goal: to enable happier, more independent living for the people receiving care, and to provide support and peace of mind for their families.
