Most adults who become seriously ill or injured complete at least a part of their recovery at home, whether or not they feel prepared to do so. Those with serious chronic illnesses often need additional at-home support to help them manage their illness successfully.
MultiCare’s Home Health’s nurses, physical, speech and occupational therapists, social workers and home health aides are disease management and rehabilitation experts. We are ready to help you, your caregiver and your doctor manage your illness or assist with your recovery at home, to improve your quality of life and speed your return to your normal day-to-day activities.
Home Health is an umbrella term for a range of care and support services offered to individuals who need help recovering from or managing an illness or injury. These services are provided to you where you live, whether that be a private residence, adult home, retirement home or assisted living facility, and vary widely depending on your specific care needs.
Home health services are available on a short-term, or long-term basis, depending on how your health progresses. Services are provided on a scheduled basis by appointment. You may have one or several appointments each week, depending on the care you need. We do not provide all-day nursing or health aide care, but if you or your loved one needs this level of support, we can help you find an appropriate service.
