What is Home Care?

Home Health is care provided in the home by one or multiple skilled professionals. These professionals could consist of a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist or a social worker who meet, discuss and work together as a team to treat an illness or injury with the goal of keeping the patient out of the hospital, regaining their independence and becoming as  self-sufficient as possible.

At Las Cruces Comprehensive Rehab and Home Care we offer a unique type of service. Our focus is on continuity of care. Once admitted into our home care program you will be followed by a Registered Nurse or Physical Therapist who work in the outpatient clinic as well as in the home. This allows them to be fully aware of your needs when the time comes to transition from home to the outpatient clinic setting new goals consistent with your progress gained while in the home setting.

• Monitoring serious illness and unstable health status
