Home Health
Home health services are skilled home care services which allow our patients to recover at home. Our team of healthcare professionals assists our patients with managing their illness or recovering from an injury. 
Disease Management Programs
 Our nationally recognized disease management programs provide specialized home health care for chronic illnesses and have been proven to reduce hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

  • Cardiac Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Orthopedic
  • Mental Health

Telehealth Monitoring
As a component of our Disease Management Programs, Alterna-Care partners with Honeywell HomMed™ to provide daily monitoring of vital signs, weight, blood glucose, and pulse oxygen levels.  We review vital signs 7 days a week and contact patients if they test outside their established range.  With web-based access, both families and physicians can login to view patient vital sign transmissions.  Telehealth monitoring coupled with acute nursing care, has dramatically improved the health and quality of life for our patients who suffer from chronic illnesses such as diabetes and congestive heart failure.
