What is home health care? Home health care is skilled medical care delivered in the comfort of a patient’s home. Trained medical professionals, working under the direct supervision of a patient’s physician, provide home health services. Home health care includes a wide range of medical, social and therapeutic treatments that help patients return to healthy and active lives.

Do you need your treatment progress monitored? We help you follow your doctor’s orders to speed your recovery.
Are you at risk for falls? Our therapists can help you understand physical risks and limitations and coach you to be safe at home.
We help you stay connected when it matters most.
At PCH Home Health, qualified home health care patients have access to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with the convenient Philips Lifeline medical alert system. This one-touch button device, worn as a pendant or wristband, connects our home health patients to a certified Lifeline professional for immediate assistance.
And, because we know a strong support system is an important part of healing, we offer our patients free access to private, online care communities. It takes just a few simple steps to create a secure, invitation-only website that allows you to involve loved ones in your recovery.
