The mission of Dunn Home Health Care is to provide the best possible care and service to all of our home health care patients.
Deciding When Home Health Care Is Appropriate
Persons are considered for Home Health Care when their medical,
nursing, therapy, and social needs are intermittent and capable of being
safely met within the confines of their own home. Home care does not
provide ongoing, 24-hour, around the clock or respite services.
Requesting Home Health Care Services
Referrals may be made by:
- Asking your physician
- Inquiring while a patient is in the hospital or other facility
- By calling our Home Care office
Dunn Home Health Care serves citizens within a 25-30 mile radius of
St.Vincent Dunn Hospital. This includes all of Lawrence County and
parts of Monroe, Jackson, Green, Martin, Orange and Washington
Services shall not be denied to anyone on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin or handicap.
We bring a full range of medical and social services to the patient
under the orders of a physician. Intermittent nursing care and other
services are provided to patients in order to restore their health and
independence or to minimize the effects of an illness or disability and
to help the patient and their family or caregiver learn the care
necessary to continue living in the home.
Our services include (more details):
- Skilled nursing
- Home health aides
- Physical therapy
- Medical social services
- Occupational therapy
Dunn Home Health Care maintain contact with both the patient and
the physician. The staff keeps the doctor informed of changes in the
patient's condition and acts on his/her orders. The home health care
team provides services that contribute to the patient's welfare and
shares health skills and information so that the patient and caregivers
can become more independent.
