Three services for better health

home healthMercy Home Health offers a wide range of services, including:

  1. Skilled nursing. A nurse will assess your health, provide treatment and education after a hospital stay, or assist you in managing a chronic condition such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or congestive heart failure.
  2. Physical therapy. Most home health patients benefit from therapy to help them get stronger after an illness or surgery. A physical therapist can help you use equipment—such as a cane or walker—that may have been issued in the ER.
  3. Occupational therapy. Therapists can help you adjust to a health condition by teaching you new ways of doing daily activities at home—for example, after a stroke, a surgery or any other condition that affects your ability to be independent with dressing, bathing and food preparation.
