Home Health Care
Home is where the heart is. And thanks to our home health care services, you can also receive high-quality medical care there, too.
Medical research has shown that patients often recover more quickly and experience better outcomes when they recuperate in the comfort of their own homes. It gives patients the independence they desire and confidence that they’re still receiving excellent medical care. Let our team of nurses and rehabilitation therapists and medical social workers create a personalized home care treatment plan to meet your recovery needs.
Our home health care services are available in Defiance, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, Williams, and Wood counties in Ohio. We also serve Hillsdale, Lenawee and Monroe counties in Michigan.
Our Service Area
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans cover home health care services. A physician referral is needed, and our staff will contact your insurance carrier to determine your exact coverage so you don’t have to.

Skilled Nursing Care Specialty Programs
Our skilled nursing care services include several specialty programs:
Certified experts work closely with physicians to provide advanced wound care treatments that can promote healing and reduce pain.
Certified wound, ostomy and continence nurses can lead you to the right products and help you make necessary lifestyle changes.
Our team of rehabilitation therapists and expert nurses have the knowledge and experience needed to create a custom home exercise program to help patients recover after injurt, illness, or orthopaedic surgery and adjust to a less demanding lifestyle, if that’s what’s needed.
Our interdisciplinary team helps patients avoid complications, control symptoms, make nutrition and lifestyle changes, and more. These experts routinely work with patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and heart disease, to name a few.
Maternal and Child Health
If you’re pregnant or have just delivered, ProMedica’s specialized nurses can be of great help with hydration infusions, skilled assessments, breast feeding techniques, and infant care instruction. In addition, pediatric nurses, physical therapists, and speech therapists take expert care of children with special needs, while giving families support and the knowledge needed to face possible challenges.
Living with a disease can be challenging. ProMedica offers disease management programs for chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and total joint replacement and rehab.
Disease management specialists create action plans that utilize a color-coded alert system so patients and families are always sure of the patient’s health status.
Infusion Therapy Services
In conjunction with ProMedica Home Infusion Pharmacy, our infusion therapy services coordinate pharmaceutical needs with ordered medical care. This includes home infusion services, aerosol and self-injectable medications, IV antibiotics, pain management medication and more.
For more information, simply call 419-291-0141 or 800-234-9355.
In some situations, private duty health care can help provide care at home, which can potentially delay hospitalization or transfer to an institutional setting. ProMedica’s nursing home health aides, companions and homemaker services are often a welcome option.
Private duty home health services may be an appropriate option when:
- A patient is recovering from an injury, illness, surgery, or birth and care is not medically necessary but extra support is desired.
- The patient’s health condition limits daily activities.
- A spouse or companion is incapacitated and assistance is needed in providing care or respite.
- The family chooses to care for the patient at home.
- Placement in a nursing facility is not immediately available.
- Caregiver responsibilities outside of the home make it difficult to ensure that a patient’s needs are always being met.
- A patient needs weekly or monthly medication set-ups to ensure safe and appropriate medication and administration.
- A patient requires a nonskilled task prior to surgery (for example, enema preparation, etc.).

Personal Emergency Response System
Personal safety is an issue that can weigh on the minds of patients and caregivers alike. Whether a patient is suffering from a chronic illness, a disability or recuperating from a recent illness or surgery, Philips Lifeline may be the answer.
Philips Lifeline is a personal emergency response system that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide peace of mind. All a patient has to do is simply press a button to be connected with specially trained operators who have access to the patient’s current medical information, as well as the names and phone numbers of three patient-selected emergency contacts.
Of course, if someone you love is in need of hospice or palliative care, we can help there, too.
