Southland Home Health’s team of knowledgeable professionals is dedicated to excellent, compassionate care for patients, clients and their families.
Southland Home Health is a home health agency who prides themselves on giving our patients the highest quality of home care. Our home health care professionals include RN’s, LPN’s, CNA’s, and home health aides, who provide care to those desiring to remain living at home as well as those who are in need of wound care and skilled nursing.
We work closely with both the patient and the physician to determine the exact level of home health care needed. The care provided may be temporary, consisting of a few days a week for a few short weeks, or it may be essential to be seen daily for a couple of months. Whatever your needs, we will provide the care that is necessary to restore optimum health.
Southland Home Health believes that home care should be more than just nursing attention. We believe that in order to provide the highest quality of care, we must treat our patients like our own family. We select only nursing staff who have strong backgrounds in providing reliable care. We have ongoing training for our nurses and aides to ensure they see patients as more than just medical situations; our patients become our first priority and are as important to us as our own family.

Home health includes a broad spectrum of care and social services, including nursing, therapy treatments and/or assistance with the activities of daily living. Increasingly, the home is the appropriate place to deliver these services for those who wish to remain independent but have the need for care that is beyond the scope of family’s and friends abilities. Home care providers deliver highly skilled services in conjunction with modern technology that enables the elderly, chronically ill, disabled and recuperating patient to receive sophisticated medical treatment in the comfort and privacy. Being in their own surroundings can be more soothing; therefore, more conducive to recovery.
Home health care is available for anyone. Medicare, commercial insurance and private pay arrangements are all possible payment sources for home health care services. However, third party payers have specific criteria that must be met for coverage of services.
Home health is an essential part of healthcare today, touching the lives of nearly every American. It includes a broad range of professional healthcare and support services provided in the home. As hospital stays decrease, increasing numbers of patients need highly-skilled services when they return home. Home health is necessary when a person needs ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. Home health services include assisting those persons who are recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill and are in need of medical, nursing, social, or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with the essential activities of daily living.
