Home Health of Northwest Services

Our team of skilled healthcare professionals provides comprehensive home health care wherever the patient calls home. We work closely with each patient's physician to customize a plan of care focused on delivering the highest quality of individualized home healthcare possible.

Skilled Nursing

Skilled nursing services are performed by a Registered Nurse (RN) with the goal of providing individualized patient care in the home. Nurses work with individuals, families, and community members to ensure optimal recovery while maintaining compliance with physicians' orders.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a branch of rehabilitative medicine that uses personalized exercises and equipment to help patients regain or improve their physical abilities to promote independence. The physical therapist works one-on-one to assess functional strength and mobility in order to develop a personalized plan of care with goals of improving quality of life and independence.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is branch of rehabilitative medicine that utilizes techniques and strategies to help individuals to improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments. Occupational therapists work directly with patients to help them adapt and improve ways of performing necessary functions within the home environment and activities of daily living.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is the treatment of speech and communication disorders. Depending on the disorder, the treatment plan may include physical exercises to strengthen the muscles used in speech (oral-motor work), speech drills to improve clarity, or sound production practice to improve articulation. The speech therapist will assess the patient for their specific needs and provide corrective or rehabilitative treatments.

Medical Social Workers

Medical Social Workers provide services that focus on social and emotional factors affecting each patient and their loved ones. They assess the patients' needs and coordinate available community resources and provide counseling.

Certified Nursing Assistants

A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) is certified to perform tasks delegated by a registered nurse to improve and support a healthy and clean environment in the home. CNAs work closely with the patient and their families to provide wide-ranging services such as hygiene and personal care services, bathing, meal prep, and light housekeeping chores.
