Our Commitment To Veterans

Liberty is not free, it is protected by our men and women in uniform - we honor their sacrifice.
America’s veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country and we believe it is never too late to give them a hero’s welcome home. That’s why our hospice is taking part in the We Honor Veterans program. Our staff understand the unique needs of veterans and are prepared to meet the specific challenges that veterans and their families may face at the end of life.

We have embraced our mission to serve America’s veterans. It’s our way of saying thank you for the sacrifices they have made in serving us.

  • I work in the health care industry and I work with many healthcare professionals. However, when healthcare hits home and personal you want the best care for your loved one. Noni is not only professional and courteous, she is also a person with a great heart for her job. I am blessed to have met you and was able to choose Advanced Home Health and Hospice. Your staff is dedicated to patient care, and is amazing, please a big thank you to everyone.

  • In November 2017 I had a cholecystectomy. As a result, Josh arrived and did a marvelous job of working with my body to restore it. He has been very supportive in working with me and has been enthusiastically helping me meet my goals.

  • Elisa’s treatment and professionalism was the best I’ve had since moving to California, I was presently surprised. We had a good connection, and she showed me exercises I didn’t even know were possible for her to perform.

Frequently Asked Questions

Home Health

Are your services covered by Medicare?

Yes, most services are covered by either Medicare or private insurance.

How do you select your nurses and therapists?

We consider: experience, compassion, and ability. We also carefully screen all employees for criminal records and driving violations. And of course, we check all references thoroughly.

How long does it take to get a nurse or therapist?

Your nurse or therapist will perform their first assessment within 24-48 hours of receiving an order from your physician.

What if my nurse or therapist is sick or goes on vacation?

Another experienced, caring nurse or therapist will provide the needed services. And of course, we inform clients of any changes prior to sending a substitute.

Why should I use your service instead of another home health agency?

Advanced Home Health is locally owned and operated and provides superior customer service. We are also active and involved in the communities that we serve.

How do I qualify for Medicare covered home health services?

You must have a medical need for skilled nursing, physical therapy or speech pathology.

You require intermittent services. Continuous care is not covered.

You must be under the care of a doctor who is willing to participate in managing your home health plan of care.

You are homebound, meaning that your condition keeps you from leaving home without the help of an assistive device or another person to help you. You doctor may also advise that leaving your home home isn’t recommended because of your condition.

Hospice

When should a decision about entering a hospice program be made?

At any time during a life-limiting illness, it’s appropriate to discuss all options available, including hospice. Hospice accepts patients who have a life-expectancy of six months or less.

Should I wait for our physician to raise the possibility of hospice, or should I bring it up first?

You should feel free to ask your physician for more information about hospice care at any time. If you are interested in how hospice might be able to assist you, our staff is also available to answer any questions you might have.

Is all hospice care the same?

No. Many communities have more than one hospice. Medicare requires certified hospices provide a basic level of care, but the quantity and quality of all services can vary significantly from one hospice to another. To find the best hospice for your needs, ask your doctor, healthcare professionals, clergy, social workers or friends who have received care for a family member. You may want to call or meet with the hospices and ask questions about their services.

Can a hospice patient who shows signs of recovery be returned to regular medical treatment?

Certainly. If the patient’s condition improves and the disease seems to be in remission, patients can be discharged from hospice and return to aggressive therapy or go on about their daily life. If the discharged patient should later need to return to hospice care, Medicare and most private insurance will allow additional coverage for this purpose.

What does the hospice admission process involve?

One of the first things the hospice program will do is contact the patient’s physician to make sure he or she agrees that hospice care is appropriate for this patient at this time. (Most hospices have medical staff available to help patients who have no physician). The patient will be asked to sign consent and insurance forms. These are similar to the forms patients sign when they enter a hospital. The form Medicare patients sign also tells how electing the Medicare hospice benefit affects other Medicare coverage.

Is there any special equipment or changes I have to make in my home before hospice care begins?

Your hospice provider will assess your needs, recommend any equipment, and help make arrangements to obtain any necessary equipment. Often the need for equipment is minimal at first and increases as the disease progresses. In general, hospice will assist in any way it can to make home care as convenient, clean and safe as possible.

How many family members or friends does it take to care for a patient at home?

There’s no set number. One of the first things a hospice team will do is to prepare an individualized care plan that will, among other things, address the amount of caregiving needed by the patient. Hospice staff visit regularly and are always accessible to answer medical questions.

Must someone be with the patient at all times?

In the early weeks of care, it’s usually not necessary for someone to be with the patient all the time. Later, however, since one of the most common fears of patients is the fear of dying alone, hospice generally recommends someone be there continuously. While family and friends do deliver most of the care, hospices may have volunteers to assist with errands and to provide a break and time away for primary caregivers.

What specific assistance does hospice provide home-based patients?

Hospice patients are cared for by a team consisting of a physician, a nurse, social workers, counselors, home health aides, clergy, therapists, and volunteers. Each one provides assistance based on his or her own area of expertise. In addition, hospices provide medications, supplies, equipment, and other services related to the terminal illness.

Does hospice provide care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

Hospice staff is on call for emergencies 24 hours a day. Hospice care does not include a nurse in the home 24/7. If you require more care than can be provided in the home, some hospices have their own inpatient facilities. Most communities have nursing homes, inpatient residential centers and hospitals with hospice care options.

Can a hospice patient who shows signs of recovery be returned to regular medical treatment?

Certainly. If the patient’s condition improves and the disease seems to be in remission, patients can be discharged from hospice and return to aggressive therapy or go on about their daily life. If the discharged patient should later need to return to hospice care, Medicare and most private insurance will allow additional coverage for this purpose.
