As a physician, you have a choice of home health care providers and you want only the best for your patients. Lifespan can provide the Total Home Care Solution for your patients, going well beyond the skilled care services of Visiting Nurse program.
We eliminate the need to source out and coordinate care, services and equipment from a multitude of providers.
Lifespan's professional staff will work with you to develop a plan of care for each of your patients that provides solutions for all their health care needs. Lifespan offers on-call services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Home Health care is not just for post-surgery or hospitalization. In fact, the National Home Care Association study of home health agencies has determined that 36% of Medicare beneficiaries did NOT have a hospital or nursing home stay. Their physician's office initiated or ordered home health care services for them.
