Is home health care right for you?

To receive home health care, you must be considered homebound. To be homebound means the following, as described by Medicare:

  • Leaving your home isn’t recommended because of your condition
  • Your condition keeps you from leaving home without help (such as using a wheelchair or walker, needing special transportation, or getting help from another person)
  • Leaving home takes a considerable and taxing effort

A person may leave home for medical treatment or short, infrequent absences for non-medical reasons, such as attending religious services. You can still get home health care if you attend adult day care, but you would get the home care services in your home.

What services do we offer?

Our home care services are designed to help enhance your independence. We offer Skilled Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Medical Social Work, Home Health Aide, and Respiratory Therapy. More details about our services can be found HERE. Call us with any questions.

Assistance with daily activities is not included in home health care (eg, meal delivery, cleaning, laundry). James River Home Health staff will help determine what you may need and offer recommendations for reputable companies to help with these needs. Some of these organizations are listed HERE.
