Amedisys Home Health Care: Bringing Healthcare to you
What is Home Health?
There’s no place quite like home whether you are recovering from an injury, surgery or illness or even managing ongoing conditions like heart failure, diabetes or respiratory problems.

*Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
*Chronic Kidney Disease
How does home health care work?

*Your doctor must first refer you for home health services, then a clinician will contact you to schedule a home visit. In order to receive home health services, you must meet certain requirement but you may request the home health provider of your choice.

Frequently asked Questions:
What can I expect on the first home health care visit?
On your first visit, a nurse or therapist will conduct an initial evaluation. This thorough interview and evaluation is part of our coordinated approach to managing your overall health status. Through our evaluation, we focus on educating you in self-care management and partner with your doctor to promote disease prevention and proactive care-which includes your family or caregivers.
This team approach facilitates an easier transition for you from a hospital or nursing facility to your home and actively engages you and your caregivers in your healthcare.
How often will my home health care visits occur?
The frequency of home health care visits and the services provided to you are based on your doctor’s orders in your personal plan of care. In order to provide you with the best home health care for your needs, your doctor may change your plan of care, increasing or decreasing the number of visits or services provided.
My doctor is ordering home health care for me, Can I request you as my provider by name?
Absolutely and we’d be honored to care for you or your loved one. Federal law gives patients the freedom to choose their health care provider under Medicare.
