At Horizon, we understand that most people prefer to stay in their own home, especially when recovering from an injury or illness. When you are at home, you can retain your sense of independence and dignity, while being in a comfortable, familiar environment, which can often speed up the recovery process. Home health care is delivered in the patient’s home or home setting such as assisted living or retirement community. When a physician orders home health care, our team delivers a broad range of skilled services that may include skilled nursing, therapy, social work or a certified nursing assistant.
