Home health services provided by qualified and caring professionals
We understand how important it is to feel comfortable with the people who are caring for you or your loved one. That’s why we only hire skilled and health care providers who are considerate and gentle and work as a team to help you.
Since 1994, we have proudly provided home care services to patients and families throughout Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties.
Our specially trained home health team members ensure the highest level of expertise when working with you and your physician in developing your individualized plan of care. Your physician certifies that you are eligible to receive home health services, directs your plan of care and receives updates from the home health team on a regular basis.
Our specialty programs include:
Skilled nurses assess your health care needs, evaluate, and monitor your health condition. They provide treatments and educate you and your family about your care. The nurses teach you about your medicines, home safety and how to manage your health so you can stay independent at home.
Home is the best place to regain your strength and independence. Main Line Health HomeCare and Hospice’s rehabilitation team, which includes licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists, will help you improve your quality of life at home, establish a safe environment, and help you get back to the things you love and enjoy.
Medical social workers
Medical social workers assist you with social and emotional factors related to your medical condition or recovery from an illness. Medical social workers provide support, short term counseling services, and provide information about care options and assist with accessing available community resources.
Registered dietitians evaluate special dietary and nutritional needs related to your health and medical condition. They provide education and counseling about your needs to help you manage your illness. If your doctor recommends dietary changes, or if you are undergoing treatment that affects your appetite, you may benefit from the services of a registered dietitian.

Caring and adapting to the changing needs of a person with dementia is not easy.
