Home health care from Western Connecticut Home Care and Health Quest Home Care helps people with complex medical needs live in the comfort of their own home. A team of experienced caregivers works closely with patients, their doctors and loved ones to tailor services that promote wellness, independence and peace of mind.

Home health care: Why choose us?

We have been providing warm, attentive, personalized home health services in New York’s Hudson Valley and Western Connecticut for more than 100 years.

These services are available through:

  • Western Connecticut Home Care
  • Health Quest Home Care

Highlights of our program include:

  • Certification and accreditation: Our home health care programs are state-licensed, Medicare-certified and accredited by The Joint Commission. Accreditation means our home health organizations comply with national standards and maintain a commitment to continuous quality improvement.
  • Broad range of services: Our services include wound therapy, post-surgical care, orthopedic and rehabilitative care. We also provide management for medical conditions such as diabetes, heart failure and respiratory illnesses. Eligible patients have access to maternal and child health services that are not widely available elsewhere.
  • Team approach: The home health team includes experienced skilled nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists, social workers and dietitians along with home health aides. We work together to tailor services to your needs. A registered nurse or therapist specializing in home health oversees your care. They make intermittent skilled visits based on your medical care needs.

Care coordination and transitions

Home health teams work closely with the medical staff at Nuvance Health hospitals, physician practices, rehabilitation centers, skilled nursing facilities and community support services. They coordinate care and help patients transition home.

Our coordinated approach includes:

  • Evidence-based care: Clinicians work with your physician and other health care team members to provide you with evidence-based care and treatments. Home health clinicians have access to a wealth of specialists, resources and training, including practices in infection control.
  • Seamless transitions: If you are coming home from  the hospital, skilled nursing facility or rehabilitation center, the home health team is here for you. We work with the facility discharge planners and your physician to coordinate your care. These efforts lower the risk of complications that might send you back to the hospital.
  • Education: Nurses and therapists provide helpful information, so you can learn how to manage your illness, medications, and self-care techniques.
