    Once again the Granite Falls Hospital Home Care Department has been named one of the top 100 agencies in the nation according to Home Care Elite. The agencies are chosen based on performance measures, which include quality improvement, patient experiences, process measure implementation and financial management. The data for this information is based on publicly available information. We are very proud of the care we provide and thankful that the hard work and care that is provided is recognized.
    Home Care covers a wide range of services, and is truly a safety net for our health care system. Care can be provided at home to clients that are recovering after a hospital stay, nursing home, may be disabled, terminally ill or have multiple chronic illnesses. The Home Care Team can help individuals to maintain safely at home thru skilled nursing service, therapy services and/or home health aide assist. Home Care is the most cost effective health care service available.
    People of all ages can benefit from Home Care Service. Care can be provided whereever that client considers home, whether that is a relative’s home, an apartment, or congregate housing.
    Many individuals have long term home care, they may require assistance with management of their medications and/or assessments of their health status, assist with personal cares and light housekeeping; care is dependent on each individual’s needs and the type of coverage that is available for them. Some clients only require assistance for a short term, to assist in the transition of returning home from an institutional setting. There may be a need for guidance and education for the client and / or the family, caregiver. Care is very individualized to each person’s specific needs. Safety is very important and our goal is to help individuals to maintain safely at home, empower them to be independent and teach them about their disease process, medications and manage their health care needs ongoing.
