In a time when people are living longer and families are busier than ever, it is vital that we assist the elderly age in place. Sometimes families live many miles from those in need, other times family constraints are overwhelming. Family members may have a sincere desire to help but are faced with little time to meet the demanding and essential needs of their loved ones.

MHS Home Health can share the responsibility of providing care for aging family members. We are a locally owned business, professionally insured and bonded, dedicated to delivering compassionate and professional care. Our resources allow us to quickly coordinate, provide and manage affordable care. We have highly qualified personal employees who work closely with the client and family to establish a lasting relationship. Our services are based on Medicare, commercial insurance, Medicaid and private pay.

Physical, Occupational Therapy And Companion Care

Companion care focuses primarily on the client and his or her social needs. Companions offer a wide range of services including:

  • Provide companionship, social, communication
  • Stabilize when walking by holding arm or hand
  • Report unusual incidents or change in behavior to MHS
  • Accompany to appointments and/or run errands

Skilled Nursing

There are times when a person requires a professional who can attend to more personal needs. We can arrange a Personal Caregiver (Certified Nursing Assistant or Home Health Aide), who can provide improved health and hygiene without sacrificing their dignity or privacy. Personal Care includes all the tasks of Companion Care PLUS:

  • Assist with "Hands on" care, including bathing, dressing, skin, mouth and hair care.
