Who Needs Home Health?

Home health might be ideal if you've experienced any of the following:

  • Diagnosed with an illness
  • Change in your health condition
  • Changes to medication
  • Recently hospitalized
  • Fear of falling or feel at risk for a fall
  • Concerns about safety and independence at home
  • Require assistance to leave home
  • Need help with Medical needs
  • Needs assistance with Medications
  • Concerns for safety/mobility

Home Health Services

Home health can include one or several types of care, but our most common services include:
 
  • Skilled Nursing
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Home Health Aide services
  • Medical Social Worker care
  • Private Duty

Assisted Living

With assisted living you’ll have the best of both worlds — help if you need it and your independence.

We think personalized care is part of aging well, so if you need a little extra help with daily activities like dressing or medication management, we offer assisted living with private residences, an engaging social calendar and restaurant-style dining.

Other benefits:

  • Qualified staff assists with taking medication, getting dressed and bathing
  • A variety of floor plans, from studio-sized to two-bedroom apartments
  • Classes, parties and outings

It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to you, so we can understand your needs. We partner with you, recognizing your individual needs and preferences, adjusting services to meet your changing needs and create a customized living experience.

With our personal service system, you can live your life the way you want. In addition to medication management and personal check-ins, many of our communities also offer home health services with licensed professionals. 

We understand assisted living is more than just care. It’s a lifestyle. We know close friendships and meaningful relationships play an integral role in aging well. Research shows that staying connected with family, friends and your community is more important in predicting our longevity and quality of life than our age. 

That’s why we offer programs like Brookdale Celebrates, so residents can connect with friends and family by celebrating exciting cultural theme with parties, social events and dining experiences offered each month.

At Brookdale, we’re not just changing perceptions of aging. We’re celebrating aging by redefining what it means to live well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Home Health

Brookdale home health is a Medicare-certified agency and a fully owned subsidiary of Brookdale Senior Living. We offer services when you need to be more independent in your home (or in a senior living community), or you are transitioning from a medical care facility back to your home. We assess the quality of your abilities in order to reduce or prevent further decline, safety risk and injury.

We assess your ability to perform all tasks up to and including high-level skills and activities. With this approach we can identify needs early, and truly enrich and enhance your life. By working under the supervision of your doctor, we strive to return you to medical independence as quickly as possible.

If you have Medicare, your home health services may be covered up to 100 percent. Medicare Part B covers 80% of the expenses with a required patient co-payment of 20%. Medicare Part A covers 100% if you meet the following requirements:

  • Home health services are ordered by your physician and deemed medically necessary.
  • You need skilled care from a licensed professional.
  • You need short-term intermittent care.
  • You are homebound.

Brookdale Home Health also accepts most insurances, long-term care, and private pay. We will call your insurance company to verify benefits and discuss them with you before starting services.

Home health might be ideal if you've experienced any of the following:

  • Diagnosed with an illness
  • Change in your health condition
  • Changes to medication
  • Recently hospitalized
  • Fear of falling or feel at risk for a fall
  • Concerns about safety and independence at home
  • Require assistance to leave home
  • Need help with Medical needs
  • Needs assistance with Medications
  • Concerns for safety/mobility

Medicare Part A covers 100% of the following services: skilled nursing visits (RN and LPN visits), physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work, and home health aide services to assist with bathing up to two times per week. Medicare B only covers therapy services; it does not cover any nursing, social work, or home health aide services. 

When home health is started, your doctor will initially certify for a 60-day episode. You can be recertified after the initial 60-day episode should conditions warrant. (Brookdale Home Health’s typical benchmark is 45 days.)

An RN Case Management team will be assigned to you and they will work with you to coordinate visits. Aside from illness and personal time off, all efforts are made to keep the same nurse and therapists with the patient through the entire home health episode.
