Home health agencies help patients through recovery. CHAP shares that goal.

Home Health

From skilled nursing services to occupational therapy, home health agencies provide invaluable care and support services to people in their homes.

Whether as part of a public or private agency, providers specialize in skilled nursing services and other therapeutic/rehabilitative services in the home, including occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech language therapy, medical social work and home health aide care as well as nutrition counseling, wound care, palliative care and behavioral health care.  

Their goal is to help patients heal, recover after surgery or learn to manage a chronic illness.  

CHAP shares that goal.
