Home Health Agencies
Home Health includes in home medical care prescribed by a physician to receive an in-home nurse, aide, and therapeutic services with the intention of recovery. This is most used after a hospitalization, injury, or illness that prompts the need for rehabilitations when transportation outside of the home isn't possible.
You should ask your physician, or hospital case manager / social worker for a list of recommended home health facilities in your area. To do research in advance, consider visiting the Alabama Department of Public Health to generate a listing of Health Care Facilities from their Health Care Facilities Directory for Home Health Care Agencies. Directions on how to access that is below:
