Hebrew SeniorLife responds to COVID-19
Hebrew SeniorLife is actively responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. As always, our number one priority is protecting our patients, residents, and staff.
Short-Term Skilled Nursing Visits, 24/7
Hebrew SeniorLife Home Health will send registered nurses and home health aides to your home to provide skilled care, any time you need it. Let us help you through the bumps in the road and get you back on the path to wellness. We can support you with the following conditions and situations:
- Acute illness care for falls and conditions such as diabetes, chronic heart failure, COPD, and cancer
- Post-surgical care following orthopedic, spinal, heart, and other surgeries
- Wound care
- IV therapy
- Physical, occupational, and speech therapies
- Palliative care
Wellness Support and Specialty Programs
Sometimes, it’s tough to get to the doctor’s office to get support and ask questions — whether about new medications, the use of assistive devices, or other concerns. A visit from a home health provider is a wellness benefit you are entitled to through insurance — there is no hospitalization required.
The types of supports we can provide include:
- Home safety evaluations
- Fall prevention strategies
- Medication education and management
- Use of adaptive equipment and patient transfers
- Nutrition education
- Medical social work
- Low-vision strategies
- Telehealth technology
Thank you so very much for all your excellent care for my patient! You went above and beyond the call of duty in every way. – A Primary Care Physician
Eligibility and Payment
Hospitalization is not required — but a physician’s referral is. Services are based on your individual needs and the plan of care is developed in close consultation with your primary care physician. Hebrew SeniorLife Home Health works with all Massachusetts hospitals and physician groups.
In addition to Medicare, we take many insurance plans.
