About Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare
Home Health Care
Tallahassee Memorial Home Health Care, in consultation with physicians, provides a variety of in-home medical services that ease the transition from hospital to home following a hospital stay, surgery or trauma.
These services, provided by nurses, physical, speech and occupational therapists, home health aides and medical social workers, ensure patients receive quality home care just as comprehensive as what is available at the hospital. Home health care helps patients recover, regain their independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
- Do not need continuous in-home care, such as in a nursing home or long-term acute care facility
- Need help recovering from or learning to manage a health condition at home
- May have limited mobility or functionality
- May have difficulty leaving their home
Easing the Transition
The best time to look into home health services is upon first admission to the hospital or prior to admission in the case of a scheduled surgery. Physicians will work closely with the home health care provider to customize an interdisciplinary care plan and make arrangements for the necessary services and equipment before they leave the hospital.
