Accessing the Help You Need
Home healthcare services are initiated through a referral from physicians, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities, families and friends, case managers/discharge planners, social workers, health plans and insurance companies. Additionally, most insurance plans require that:
- Care is medically necessary and reasonable
- Patient is homebound
- Care is intermittent
- Care is skilled
- Care is not custodial
We would be happy to help you arrange the care you need. We accept most insurance plans. We are open 7 days a week from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. except holidays. Call us at 310-543-3450 for more information.
