Home Health Care
Sometimes you need a little help at home. Maybe you recently left the hospital with a wound that needs more care than your family can provide. Or you're coming home after having had hip or knee replacement surgery and could benefit from physical therapy.
That's where Frio Regional Hospital's Home Health Care Services come in. Our skilled nurses and other specialists can provide a wide range of care in the comfort of your own home. We serve the population of Frio County and the surrounding areas, including La Salle, Medina, Atascosa and Webb counties.
Our home health team works for you
Our Home Health Care team includes licensed and registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, home health aides and a social worker. And we have the only Home Health Care team in the area that includes physical, occupational and speech therapists.
Our goal is to help you regain the ability to perform daily activities like bathing, dressing and making meals. We want to help you return to as independent a life as possible.
We offer complete home healthcare
Among the home health services we can provide are:
- Catheter care.
- Intravenous or nutrition therapy.
- Medication and other injections.
- Occupational therapy.
- Patient, family and caregiver education.
- Physical therapy.
- Speech therapy.
- Wound care.
Our team comes to you as often as your doctor orders, depending on the therapies you need and the orders your doctor has written. We keep in close contact with your doctor, so your whole healthcare team is aware of your progress and your health. And since we're connected with a hospital system, we can connect you with medical professionals quickly, should a complication arise.
Connecting with our home health team
We accept private pay, private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare replacement plans and traditional Medicare coverage.
You do need a doctor's referral to receive healthcare at home. We work with discharge planners, assisted living facilities, physicians, community groups, churches and pastors in Frio County to get those referrals. Any referral paperwork can be faxed to us at 830.334.5806.
If you'd like more information, please call our Home Health Care Services Department at 830.334.2058.
