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.
