Home Health Care
What We Provide
Silver Cross Home Health offers comprehensive in-home services for patients who are ready to complete their recovery in the comfort of their own homes. Our expert staff provides a full range of skilled services and wound care supplies to make recovery at home easier.
Patients recovering at home heal faster when they become partners in managing their own health care.

To qualify for home care services, Medicare patients must be homebound, in need of intermittent care and under the care of a physician.
In addition, anyone who requires professional medical assistance to remain at home may request our services. We also care for patients who have come from other health care facilities and reside in our service area.
