Halifax Regional Health System recognizes that not everyone leaving the hospital is ready to resume a normal routine, so for those needing further help, Halifax Home Health is the answer.

More than 11 million Americans receive home delivered health care from home health care providers. In their honor, Halifax Home Health joins the National Association for Home Care and Hospice in celebrating November as National Home Care Month, with the theme, “Love in Action.”

“This is a wonderful time of year to celebrate the role Halifax Home Health plays in the lives of many citizens in Halifax, Mecklenburg and Charlotte counties. Caring for the sick in their homes is a privilege for us,” said Kathy Scott, manager of Halifax Regional Home Health. “Home care professionals, volunteers and modern medicine make it possible for so many people to stay in the comfort of their home during a time of sickness and we are proud to be part of their health care process.”

Through technological advances, home-delivered health care has grown far beyond basic professional nursing and home care aide services. Halifax Home Health offers nursing and home health aide services, therapy services that include physical, speech and occupational therapists, medical equipment and supplies/laboratory services, plus the CareLink, CareMed and CareVital programs.

“When a member of your family is recovering from a recent hospital stay, struggling with a disability or facing a chronic or terminal illness, home care or hospice services can be the most cost effective and the most compassionate method of treatment,” Scott said. “The best feature of our services is that the individual can stay in the comfort and security of his or her own home and maintain his or her independence and dignity, something that isn’t always easy to do in institutional settings.”

Ask your physician about home care. And, if you’d like to know more about the services provided by Halifax Home Health, please call 434-517-3339 or visit http://www.hrhs.org and click on Health Services.
