Every day, our Commonwealth Home Health family is helping people. We stand shoulder to shoulder, helping the patients in our care live fuller, healthier lives. We do this because helping people is, quite simply, the reason we exist. It’s our purpose.
As a proud member of LHC Group, one of the nation’s leading providers of post-acute care, we share an unparalleled commitment to patient care and clinical innovation. Our commitment to innovation and service excellence influences every facet of patient care and is the cornerstone of our industry-leading clinical programs.
Our approach to patient care starts with education. We teach our patients the tools they need they need to self-manage and identify red flags that may cause their condition or symptoms to worsen – promoting early intervention and greater independence.
Call Us First
With the Philips Lifeline medical alert service, provided as part of the plan of care to certain qualified patients, a local on-call nurse is available any time of the day or night to help manage our patients’ pressing health issues. When a patient pushes the Lifeline personal help button, he or she will be contacted right away.
Telehealth is a proven tool to reduce avoidable hospitalization and ER visits. By continuously monitoring and assessing our patients’ vital signs, we can improve clinical outcomes for individuals with heart failure, COPD, diabetes, hypertension and other chronic conditions.
Our comprehensive Beyond Balance program focuses on reducing the risk of injury and falls for at-risk patients or those who have fallen in the past. We take a holistic, individualized approach to balance and mobility, providing in-depth treatment strategies designed to help promote functional mobility.
For seniors living with diminished mental health, proper care can be the difference between golden years and stolen years. Our compassionate medical social workers and licensed nurses use a multidisciplinary approach to build comprehensive behavioral health plans that help patients and families live the healthiest life possible.
Patient Call Back
Our commitment to the patients in our care doesn’t end with discharge. A member of our team will make two calls to patients after home health services have ended to check on their recovery and progress. This service is one more way we’re helping keep our patients out of the hospital and in the comfort of home.
Online care community
A strong support system is an important part of healing for both patients and caregivers. We’re proud to offer access to the CareFlash service. It takes just a few simple steps to create a secure, invitation-only website that allows patients and caregivers to involve loved ones in the recovery process.
