Sanford Home Health

Sanford Home Health is designed to accommodate all types of healthcare needs in your home. Services for the treatment of medical conditions are usually prescribed by an individual's physician. You may require a single type of care or a combination of services. The goal of home health is to move you toward independence in the management of your health in your home.

Frequently asked questions

Who may benefit from home healthcare?

  • Persons recently discharged from the hospital following illness or surgery
  • Newborns requiring phototherapy
  • An elderly pateint who is forgetful and requires teaching about his/her illness and medications
  • An individual who is falling at home and may need physical/occupational therapy to evaluate safety and equipment needs or nursing visits to assess potential reasons for falls
  • Patients with illnesses that are high risk for readmission, frequent clinic visits or uncontrolled symptoms such as difficulty breathing or pain

How does 24-hour staff availability work?

If a concern or an emergency comes up at any time of day, at least one member of Sanford's home health team can be reached by a telephone number previously given to the recipient or the recipient's family. If the situation cannot be resolved over the phone, the staff member will visit the home. All on-call staff members are licensed and certified to work in a home health environment.

Testimonials

"We couldn't have kept our mother in her home for as long as we did without your help. Thank you for all the loving care you gave her."

"I didn't think I needed help at home following my surgery, but was amazed at how much the nurses and therapists were able to do for me during my first few weeks at home."

"The nurses helped me organize and understand my medicines better. Now I am able to take them like I am supposed to."

Services

Skilled nurses

Skilled nurses are RNs or LPNs with training and experience in providing care in the home. The nurse will communicate with your doctor to update your plan of care. We will partner with you to assess and coordinate needs and services. This may include skilled nursing care, help with medications, prevention of complications and education to help you reach your highest level of independence.

Physical therapists(PTs)

Physical therapists work to restore mobility and strength of patients who are limited or disabled by physical injuries through the use of exercise, massage and other methods. They also teach patients and caregivers special techniques for walking and transfer.

Occupational therapists(OTs)

Occupational therapists help individuals who have physical, developmental, social or emotional problems that prevent them from performing the general activities of daily living (ADLs). OTs instruct patients on using specialized rehabilitation techniques and equipment to improve their function in tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing and basic household routines.

Speech language pathologists

Speech language pathologists work to develop and restore the speech of individuals with communication disorders. Speech therapists also help retrain patients in breathing, swallowing and muscle control.

Social workers

Social workers provide short-term counseling services, referral to and coordination with community resources and assistance with living arrangements, finances and long-range planning.

Certified nurse assistants (CNAs)

Certified nurse assistants assist patients with ADLs such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, toileting and dressing. CNA services are delivered under the supervision of a registered nurse or licensed therapist.
