EveryStep Home Care
Home health care services, assist homebound individuals with health and medical conditions that can be treated at home. Home health aides assist with personal care and basic health care needs. Skilled health care services may include home visits and rehabilitative support from registered nurses (RNs), physical therapists, occupational therapists, or speech therapists.
Medicare will pay for home care when skilled services are necessary, usually following a surgery or acute care stay in a hospital or facility. Persons are considered home bound if they have an illness or injury which restricts their ability to leave the home unless assisted by others. EveryStep Home Care is a non-profit home health care provider. Visit our EveryStep Home Care page or call VNS Home Care at (515) 558-9591 for more information.
