Home Health Care and Hospice Services

Home Health Care and Hospice are vital services, especially in the rural areas served by Hoosier Uplands. Services provided by the home care staff can prevent or shorten a hospital or nursing home stay. Home Health promotes independent living and speeds the rehabilitation and recovery process by allowing a person to recuperate in familiar home surroundings.

Hospice supports the client and family as they face the last stages of life, by offering support and comfort, primarily in the home setting, allowing dignity, self control, symptom management, and family togetherness.

Hoosier Uplands Home Health Care & Hospice is committed to providing the highest quality and most cost effective home care in its service area. Our focus is on patient satisfaction. We recognize and emphasize the critical concept of provider integration, working as a team with physicians, hospitals, nursing homes, managed care organizations, as well as public and private insurers, in order to deliver health care at home. Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. Outside of regular office hours the answering service contacts the RN or administrator on call.
