Home Health Services

Consider Home Health services if you or a loved one are recovering from a hospital stay, have a chronic health condition or need specialized care related to aging or a disability. In most cases, services require an order from your physician. Riverside’s Home Health Care teams are passionate about helping you recover, regain your strength and maintain your independence in whatever place you call home.

Comprehensive Health Services in the Comfort of Home

With Riverside Home Health Care, you’ll have support from a skilled, multidisciplinary team that provides an array of personalized services that may include:

  • Nursing services: Certified nurses provide you and your caregivers with general health education and assist with skilled nursing care, including injections, IV therapy, wound care, monitoring vitals and serving as a liaison with your doctors and other health professionals.
  • Therapy services: These services may include rehabilitation through physical, occupational and speech therapies to help you regain strength, mobility, communication and other activities of daily living.
  • Symptom management: As part of your total plan of care, your care team can help you manage and minimize the pain you feel following a procedure or due to arthritis, joint pain, cancer-related pain or other chronic conditions.
  • Fall prevention training: Falling after a hospital stay or due to balance or aging issues can create significant setbacks. Our specialists can work with you on activities and exercises while helping you avoid potential fall hazards in your home.
  • Home safety evaluation: As an essential preventive measure, a licensed health care professional can thoroughly evaluate your home to help you identify and remove potential health and safety hazards.
  • Orthopedic and total joint care: We will help you maximize mobility and regain function following major surgeries, including hip, knee and total joint replacements.
  • Balance testing and training: To fully enjoy and embrace life, you want to be able to get around without risk of falling or hurting yourself. Whether normal aging or recovering from a major procedure or illness, our trained professionals will meet you where you are, evaluate your abilities and empower you through techniques to improve your balance and mobility.
