Healthcare in the comfort of your home
Whether you’re recovering from an accident, surgery or illness, or are living with a medical condition, we can give you the care you need — right at home.
What is home healthcare?
When you’re going through rehabilitation or recovering from illness or injury, home healthcare professionals come right to your home to provide the healthcare services you need.
Our caring group of nurses, aides, social workers and physical, occupational and speech therapists can help to people who:
- Are disabled with a caregiver present
- Have a chronic illness
- Have been recently hospitalized
- Have had outpatient surgery
- Have multiple health problems
Home health services include:
- Home health aide
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Skilled nursing care
- Social work
- Speech therapy
You or a loved one can live safely and comfortably at home throughout the healing process with the help of our specially trained team. And access to Geisinger's electronic medical records system through myGeisinger makes it easy to keep your doctors up to date on your progress.
What home healthcare can offer
Our home health nursing care team can provide wound care, ostomy care, catheter care and infusions whenever needed. We also offer support for bathing, nail care, oral hygiene and other daily activities.
And when our team leaves your home, you’ll get detailed instructions for chronic conditions like heart conditions and diabetes, as well as medication administration. So you always have what you need and know what to do at home to stay healthy.
Expert physical, occupational and speech therapy care
Physical therapy can include rehabilitation, gait training and mobility, as well as exercise programs to relieve pain and regain muscle strength and joint movement. Occupational therapy can help you relearn physical activities and may include suggested modifications to your home to best aid in your recovery.
And, if needed, our speech therapy services can help people recover from swallowing issues and throughout post-stroke care.
