Based on a long-standing record of excellent care, Adventist HealthCare Home Health recently received approval from the Maryland Health Care Commission to expand its in-home healthcare services to residents of Frederick County, Maryland. These services are an important option for individuals with chronic diseases or those who are recuperating from an illness, injury or surgical procedure.
“Adventist Home Health has provided quality in-home services to the region for 45 years,” said Keith Ballenger, president of Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services, a division that includes Adventist Home Health. “Our caregivers provide compassionate care to help individuals return to their normal activity or successfully manage their medical conditions. We look forward to expanding our service area to meet the needs of Frederick County residents.”
Adventist Home Health’s caregivers and support services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Assistance is provided for the full spectrum of healthcare needs, including nursing, therapy and other support services.
“Coming home from the hospital with medical needs can be overwhelming when recuperating,” Keith said. “By providing individualized support, we can help you or a loved one avoid hospitalization and continue living independently.”
Adventist Home Health’s compassionate caregivers offer skilled medical services, such as wound care, IV therapy and medication management. Individuals with therapy needs can rely on our physical, occupational and speech therapists to help regain movement and physical function after a stroke, heart surgery, or knee or hip replacement. Furthermore, chaplaincy services are also provided to meet spiritual needs by holding in-home prayer services and connecting individuals to other spiritual resources in the community.
