Home Health Care in Wooster, Ohio

Our professional team of nurses, therapists, social workers, and home health aides provides in-home care to patients and families in Wayne, Holmes, and Ashland counties of Ohio.

Home health services are available to individuals who need skilled care due to an ongoing condition, disability, or recent illness. Hospitalization is not required before receiving care. To qualify for our home health program, a patient must be under a physician's care and must be generally confined to their home. This means that your condition does not permit leaving the home on a regular basis or that leaving the home is a hardship.
