BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – If you’re on the mend after a surgery, illness or injury, chances are you would prefer to recover at home instead of a hospital. That’s why Health First Home Care was created – to bring high-quality, compassionate care to you.
According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), it’s among the best.
During a recent assessment conducted by the federal government, Health First Home Care was awarded five stars in both quality and customer experience – the highest rating available.
“We are elated to learn we’ve achieved this exceptional quality rating from CMS,” said Lottie Odom, Director, Health First Home Care.
“We are committed to providing high-quality care for those we serve and are proud to see our work reflected in the 5-Star rating. Our commitment to providing high-quality care that focuses on assisting those in our community return to their activities of daily living is ongoing at Health First Home Care.”
More and more people are opting to receive medical treatments at home. Home Care services are designed for anyone confined at home who has a medical condition requiring skilled care, which cannot be provided solely by family members or friends.
This care can include short-term assistance following a hospitalization, outpatient surgery, maternity-related incapacity, illness or injury that affects an individual’s ability to leave home to get treatment.
Health First Home Care services include:
▪ Home Health Aides
▪ Medical Social Workers
▪ Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapists
▪ Registered Nurses
In some cases, Home Care can be a cost-effective alternative to hospitalization or a rehabilitation facility.
Our services are available to anyone who has an order from a physician in the State of Florida. We can also work with out-of-state physicians to find you a local physician.
