Recovery from illness, injury or surgery is usually physically and emotionally difficult for both the patient and the caregivers. When part of the recovery can take place at home, the patient is often more comfortable, happier and can recuperate more quickly. Family members and caregivers are more relaxed and can actively participate in the recovery process.
Washington Regional Home Health is designed to provide for the patient's healthcare needs while they recover from illness, injury or surgery at home. Washington Regional Home Health works with the patient, physicians, family members, caregivers and other community support programs to help assure safety, maximum wellness and independence for the individual.
