When You're Sick or Injured, There's No Place Like Home

    It's a known fact that recovering from an illness or injury at home instead of in a hospital offers important advantages for everyone involved.  Patients can heal in privacy and comfort, surrounded by their families and loved ones.  And with the addition of experienced health care professionals to their medical team, physicians can better coordinate care.

    With the help of Home Health Services of Venice, a state-licensed and certified home care agency, recovering at home is a viable option for many people.  Our skilled and compassionate caregivers offer a full array of home health services.  Anyone can request our help, including patients, family members or physicians who want to ensure that their patients receive excellent at-home care in lieu of or in follow-up to hospitalization.

Medical Advances Make Home Care Safe and Effective

    Advances in medicine, technology and the skills of home care professionals are making it possible for people to stay in their homes and receive excellent care for a wide variety of conditions.  Many therapies that used to be available only in hospitals can now be offered right in the home, from IV therapy to wound care.

    Research has shown that home care is not only economical, but also medically advantageous.  Wounds heal more quickly, patients recuperate faster and take increased responsibility for their own care.  Education is a key component of care, and helps both patients and their families gain independence.  It also helps patients with chronic conditions learn how to better manage their own illness.
