Home Health Care

Get help at home so you can focus on healing or continue to enjoy your independent lifestyle. You can rely on the helpful, qualified professionals at Essentia Health for skilled home health care personalized to your needs on a schedule that works for you.

When to Consider Home Health Care

Stay in the comfort of your home while receiving a wide range of services. Home health care can help you:

  • Recover after a procedure, injury, or illness
  • Manage a health condition or disability
  • Shorten or prevent a hospital stay
  • Avoid or delay moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility

If you transition from a health care facility to your home, you’ll benefit from coordinated professional care without interruption. You can trust our team to help you communicate and manage services with your primary care team—whether or not they work at Essentia.

Feel confident that you’ll receive high-quality care from a team that includes staff with more than 20 years of experience. All of our facilities that offer home health care services are Medicare-certified.
