At KershawHealth, we truly believe there's no place quite like home. We also recognize that sometimes you need specialized, professional care. That's why we've put together a team of caregivers who are able to provide a wide array of services, from nursing care to rehabilitation. If you're recovering from an illness, injury, or surgical procedure, home might be just the right place for you.
Of course, with KershawHealth Home Health, you'll have all the advantages of local care. Access to all the expertise the KershawHealth system offers. A care team that lives, works, and plays right here in Kershaw County. A team that is here for you, with the care you need.
There are many reasons to seek home health services on a part-time or intermittent basis. You may need professional care at home following a hospital, rehabilitation or nursing center stay. Perhaps you want the support of professional staff working directly with your own physician, without the expense of a lengthy stay in an inpatient facility. You might even seek home care as a way to develop or improve the skills needed to continue independently living at home. Whatever you need, we'll work with you to ensure you get the most appropriate care available.
Our caregivers are always here, close by, ready to help you and your family. We work with your doctor to ensure that you receive the right care, at the right time, right where you’re most comfortable. And because we're located right here in Kershaw County, if you ever have a problem or concern, you'll have someone local to talk to.
Our registered nurses are available 24/7. They perform a wide variety of medical services, just as they would in a hospital setting. Managing medications (including IV medications), evaluating patients' response to care, and educating patients and families - they are the cornerstone of our care. We also have registered nurses who are certified in advanced wound care to provide an added level of expertise to our team and your care.
Our team of certified therapists carries rehabilitation programs directly into your home. Physical therapists help increase strength, stamina and flexibility to get you on the move again. Speech therapists help help patients regain the ability to speak and swallow properly after a stroke, injury or illness. And our occupational therapists help patients regain their ability to perform the daily tasks of independent living, like dressing, bathing or doing household chores. Finally, registered dieticians help patients and families develop eating habits that assist in healing, work in cooperation with medications, and enhance overall well-being.
Our home health aides help patients bathe, take care of their skin and perform simple exercises, while social workers provide counseling, improve the home environment and provide information on community resources.
We're KershawHealth, so you can count on the quality of our care. We were named as one of the Home Care Elite, placing us among the best home health providers in the nation. We also have one of the lowest re-hospitalization rates in our area, keeping you out of the hospital and on the road to recovery.
If you have a need for skilled home-based care, our services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, VA and most private insurance. A physician referral is required for our care.
