Redwood Area Hospital Home Care services has been a trusted source of personal healthcare in your home for 25 years.
Our Home Care team meets with clients in their own space and works with them to help make their home the best place for their health. For some clients the goal may be wound care or rehabilitation after surgery. Others simply need help with medications or homemaking.
We work with each client and their physician to create an individualized care plan. A Home Care nurse maintains continuity of care between the hospital setting, clinics, physicians, and other health care resources.
It is important to us that the client and family actively participate in developing their plan of care. We strive to provide education and resources to help aid in recovery and enhance the client’s ability to self manage their health conditions.
Take advantage of one in-home evaluation visit by a registered nurse to discuss care needs and payment options. There is no charge for this visit. Call 507-637-4579 to schedule your visit.
