Home Health

Healing In The Home

There is no place like home, especially when you are sick or injured. Working together with Parrish Medical Center, named America’s #1 Healing Hospital three years in a row, Parrish Home Health (PHH) will ensure a smooth transition from the hospital to your home. PHH’s goal is to continue your healing experience while you recover in your home.

Who Benefits From Home Health Care?

Home Health Care services are delivered to recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill persons who need medical, nursing, social or therapeutic skilled treatments in their own homes. Older adults often elect to live independent, noninstitutionalized lives and receive home care services as they experience physical limitations. Additionally, adults diagnosed with terminal illness often choose to be cared for at home, receiving compassion while maintaining dignity at the end of life.

Your Home Health Team

A registered nurse, working with your physician, manages the team of healthcare providers that aid in your recovery at home. The team members include:

  • registered nurses
  • licensed practical nurses
  • physical therapists
  • speech therapists
  • occupational therapists
  • medical social workers
  • certified home health aides

Services

Parrish Home Health (PHH) offers one-to-one patient care in your home focusing on patient independence and home safety. PHH staff offers patient and family education on their disease process, medication management, nutrition and pain control, along with IV therapy and wound/ostomy care management. Consulting services offered through Parrish Medical Center are available to PHH patients. The PHH staff works closely with these consultants to help coordinate the most advanced treatment options possible.
