Full Spectrum of Home Care Services
Sentara provides a full spectrum of home health care to meet the individual needs of patients of all ages.
Physicians, patients, and family members experience the ease of dealing with just one home care agency and the peace of mind knowing that agency is backed by Sentara, a health system nationally recognized for its excellence of care.
We work in concert with physicians to coordinate the multiple therapies and home healthcare services each patient may require – from skilled nursing care and infusion therapy to respiratory services and medical equipment.
In addition to routine home healthcare services, we continually introduce innovative, state of the art programs and services:
Patients participating in our telehealth program have the ability to check their heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar and other vital signs whenever necessary using high-tech, self-monitoring equipment – a service that offers more frequent interaction between patient and home healthcare staff in addition to regular home nursing visits.
Patients receiving intravenous medications through infusion therapy at home find it safer and easier than ever thanks to our state-of-the-art, user friendly, ambulatory infusion pumps.
Through the respiratory therapy program, patients can maximize their independence, mobility and quality of life with the most up to date oxygen technology.
