Skilled Care

Home Care Skilled Services are available to Cuyahoga County residents who are Medicare/Medicaid eligible and under the care of a physician. Our goal is to provide caring, efficient, and effective home health care to adult medical/surgical patients, geriatric patients, and adults with multiple, or unstable medical conditions.
  • Skilled nursing
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Medical social services
  • Home health aide services

Skilled nursing services are provided or supervised by a Registered Nurse. Clients receive a comprehensive assessment; care as prescribed by a physician, coordination of care and services, as well as client/family education. Education is a vital component of the care plan; so that clients and their families understand the diagnosis, illness, care plan, appropriate diet, as well as the importance of prescribed medications.
