For those who want to be home but need ongoing care beyond what friends and family can manage, a home health care provider can help. Home health care services provide in-home medical treatment, therapy or help with essential activities of daily living to individuals who are recovering, disabled or chronically ill. A home health care provider plays a key role in a patient’s quality of life, so choosing the right one is an important decision.
Holland Hospital Home Health Services has compassionate home health experts available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide skilled nursing care and personalized service in the comfort of home. Services are tailored to meet each patient’s specific needs — working closely with the patient, family members, physicians and specialists to deliver exceptional care and satisfaction.
“Our home health team takes time to listen and understand the unique circumstances and health care concerns of each individual and their family,” explains Kim Costello, Holland Hospital Home Health Services director. “Together with the patient’s physician and other medical providers, a coordinated plan of care is developed to achieve health goals and monitor progress.”
Saugatuck resident Elizabeth Jones needed assistance after a fall left her with a leg wound that needed special care. Because she had difficulty walking and was unable to drive herself to appointments, Home Health Services was a perfect fit.
“Home health workers came in three times a week to change the bandage and clean the wound. On the days they were scheduled to visit, they always called to tell me what time and who was coming,” Jones says. “They even had wound specialists come in and check me every two weeks. They were very kind, considerate and personable. I grade them as a 10.”
