Home Health Care

Home health meets a critical need in our local community. Home is where the heart is. Through home health services, patients and families are able to recover in the comfort of their own home. More than a luxury, home health care is not only more comfortable for patients, but it is often more cost effective than recovery in an institutional setting like a nursing home or rehabilitation facility.

Below, we offer a few examples of home health care services provided by Southland Home Health:

· Assessment of Condition

· Infusion Therapy

· Nutritional Support

· Pain Management

· Diabetic Management

· Wound Care: (Nurses Level II Wound Vac Certified)
