Southwest Florida Home Health Care offers patients with a diverse array
of home health care services, from skilled nursing and rehabilitation to
personal care , with a licensed staff of experts devoted to the quality
care you deserve.
We provide the following types of services...
Upon arriving at your home, our seasoned Nursing staff will conduct
a comprehensive assessment of your health status and evaluate the
environment to proceed with admission to our agency.
The information obtained will then be discussed with your physician to
determine your individualized goals and create an appropriate plan of
care. The procedures used and education provided to each patient
and their family include cardiovascular care, respiratory care,
catheter care, ostomy care, bowel/bladder training, medication
management, wound care, diabetic care, pain management, diet
teaching, and safety precautions in the home.
Our trained Physical Therapists collaborate with you and your physician to
establish a customized program designed to improve ambulation,
balance, transfers, strength, range of motion, and pain management.
Our therapists will also give you an individualized home exercise
regimen to follow, and help you to establish an effective home safety
program to reduce potential falls in your home.
Our expert Occupational Therapists work with you and your physician
to design an individualized program for improving your ability to perform
activities of daily living (ADL's) such as personal care, dressing, bathing,
toileting, and light meal preparation. Our professionals will also implement
a home exercise program to increase your strength, teach you energy
conservation techniques, and educate you in using adaptive equipment.
Our knowledgeable team of Speech Language Pathologists partner with
you and your doctor to enhance your abilities in relation to such areas as
oral motor skills, vocal quality, articulation skills, swallowing difficulties,

Under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or qualified Therapist, our

needs while you are receiving skilled services from our agency. Their
duties include checking your vital signs as well as assisting with bathing,
grooming, transferring, ambulation and toileting. Our Home Health

light housekeeping in an effort to maintain a safe environment.
A qualified Medical Social Worker is available to work with you, your
family, and your physician to address the social and emotional factors
related to your illness and need for care. Their role is to assess and
evaluate your home environment, financial needs, and the current
