Home Health at Eden
Our Home Health agencies are full-service, Medicare-certified locations offering skilled nursing and rehabilitative services. Whether you are recovering from surgery or illness, or living with a chronic disease like COPD or diabetes, our highly skilled medical team of clinicians will create a safe, supportive, and professional environment in your home. This care is provided through one-hour home visits from specialized clinicians and continues until recovery goals have been met. We are a compassionate, cost-effective alternative to institutional care.
Working closely with you and your physician, our professionals craft a comprehensive and individualized plan that can include visits from our registered nurses, home health aides, occupational and physical therapists, and speech/language pathologists. With the aid of our caring professionals, you’ll spend less time in hospitals and clinics, and more time at home maintaining your independence.
Our goal is to help you:
- Make changes to prevent future decline in your health.
- Learn about your condition.
- Manage your medications.
- Improve your safety at home.
- Prevent hospital visits.
Skilled nursing care is provided by a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to manage, observe, and evaluate care. Most often, skilled nursing is needed when an individual is recovering from injury or illness. Our nurses have significant training and experience in treating and educating patients within the home setting. We offer a range of skilled nursing care in treatment areas such as anti-coagulation therapy, cancer care, cardiopulmonary disease, diabetes, IV therapy, medication management, pain management, stroke, wound care, and more.
Our nurses are specifically trained in wound care to reduce complications, improve healing time, and improve patient comfort and outcomes. They are constantly learning about the latest practices and new products and devices. Rest assured knowing that Eden Home Health clinicians are completely capable of caring for wounds, dressing changes, and comfort during the healing process.
Diabetes is a chronic disease, which can be caused by too little insulin or a resistance to insulin, or sometimes both. Eden Home Health case managers will coordinate with our patients’ primary physicians to provide the knowledge and skills needed for our patients to manage this disease.
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
Eden Home Health case managers and clinicians will help patients understand how to manage their disease. They will provide medication education and administration. They will educate the patient on how to recognize changes to how they feel and what it may mean. Eden Home Health is partnered with LG CNS on a Virtual Care Technology venture to help monitor diseases like CHF utilizing a virtual platform care team.
Whether it is acute (temporary) pain or chronic (long-term) pain, it needs to be identified and dealt with in a timely manner to get the patient back to feeling comfortable and happy. Eden Home Health clinicians will work with our referring physicians to come up with a pain management plan that can be implemented to treat the patient’s discomfort.
Rehabilitation therapy plays an important role in helping an individual regain productivity and independence. At Eden Home Health, we offer physical, occupational, and speech therapy services that deliver real results. From improving mobility, reducing fall risk, and enhancing verbal communication, to reducing the risk of aspiration pneumonia, our skilled therapists work with physicians to create a customized plan for each patient’s specific needs.
Physical therapy is a regarded practice to improve balance, strength, and mobility, build confidence, and remain active. The role of a Physical Therapist is to help individuals realize their optimum ability to function. Physical Therapists also work to prevent loss of mobility with fitness and wellness programs that promote healthier and more active lifestyles. They can play an especially important role for those experiencing loss of balance, recovery from a fall, difficulty walking, joint or back pain, hip or knee replacement surgery, recovering from heart failure or stroke, or have a noticeable decline in function.
Occupational therapy focuses on an individual’s ability to perform the broad range of everyday life activities such as bathing, preparing meals, and housekeeping. Occupational therapy promotes independence by improving the skills required to perform these activities and/or teaching alternative ways to accomplish them. Our team helps patients develop and adopt a routine of beneficial daily activities based on the patient’s individual needs.
Speech & Language Therapy
Speech and language therapy can help individuals improve breathing, speaking, or swallowing functioning. Speech therapy focuses on the ability to understand and use words. Speech therapists may help individuals who suffer from:
- Heart Attack
- Difficulty Swallowing
- Difficulty Speaking
Home Health Aides
Home Health Aides
Our home health aides are trained to assist patients with activities of daily living (ADL) such as eating, bathing, grooming and taking vital signs. Home health aides also provide support through care activities such as checking a patient’s pulse, respiration, and blood pressure. These team members work under the supervision of our nurses and therapists to ensure that each patient’s customized care plan is fulfilled.
Medical Social Work
Medical Social Work
Recovering from illness or injury can be a very difficult time. Illness, disability and life-limiting conditions can have impact beyond your physical health. Our medical social workers review the emotional factors affecting ill and disabled patients and provide counseling and assistance finding additional community resources. They often serve as case managers when patients’ conditions are so complex that professionals need to assess medical and supportive needs and coordinate a variety of services. In addition, medical social workers consult with the patient regarding financial, social, and/or transportation problems, help establish long-term plans, crisis intervention, and counseling.
WHAT IS HOME HEALTH CARE?
Home health care consists of skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, aide services and medical social work provided to beneficiaries in their home. Home health care provides medical treatment for an illness, injury or surgery with the goal of helping you recover, and regain your independence.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR HOME HEALTH CARE?
To be eligible for the home health benefit, beneficiaries must need part-time (fewer than eight hours per day) or intermittent skilled care to treat their illnesses or injuries and must be unable to leave their homes without considerable effort. Medicare requires that a physician certify a patient’s eligibility for home health care and that a patient receiving service is under the care of a physician.
WHO PAYS FOR HOME HEALTH SERVICES?
For patients who meet home health eligibility requirements, Medicare may pay for your covered home health care for as long as you remain eligible and your doctor certifies that you need it. In addition, your state’s Medicaid program will pay for home health services, or your private insurance may also cover home health care. Please contact your state Medicaid program or insurance company to learn about their specific eligibility requirements.
WHAT IS YOUR NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY?
It is our policy to admit and treat all clients, without regard to race, ancestry, national origin, age, religious creed, color, gender, physical or mental disability, or sexual orientation. There is no distinction in eligibility, assignment, or in the manner clients are provided home care services by Eden. Any person or organization that may refer or recommend clients for home care service must do so based on an agency’s non-discrimination policy.

What is Hospice?
Hospice is medical care with an emphasis on pain management and symptom relief for patients with life-limiting illnesses, as well as emotional and spiritual support for patients and those who love and care for them. When curative measures are no longer appropriate, Hospice comfort care is a compassionate and dignified option.
Choosing hospice does not mean that you or your loved one is giving up on life. Our experienced team understands the complexity of issues and feelings that surround hospice care and end of life. Our care process is designed to maximize our patient’s quality of life. Our caregivers can provide 24-7 on-call support, clinical and skilled care, as well as spiritual and emotional counseling. We believe that through effective and compassionate care our patients can approach the end of life with dignity and comfort.
Eden Hospice understands that the experience of someone diagnosed with end stage cardiac disease is very different than that of someone with cancer or pulmonary disease. That’s why we offer symptom management to control symptoms and promote comfort. No matter what the disease or diagnosis, we believe in improving the quality of life when quantity is limited.
Our medical directors focus on symptom management and will work with your primary doctors to order appropriate medications. Our philosophy embraces the idea of relieving your pain and other symptoms so that you are in control of your own comfort. Our goal is to make a patient as comfortable as possible.
Supplies & Equipment
Supplies & Equipment
Hospice home care medical equipment can drastically improve the quality of life of those with life-limiting illnesses. Eden Hospice will manage the ordering and delivery process of the necessary equipment.
Medical equipment can:
- Improve Mobility
- Make breathing easier
- Improve quality of sleep and help reduce pain
Eden Hospice will provide you with the supplies and medical equipment related to the hospice diagnosis, including:
- Respiratory equipment including oxygen and CPAP, BIPAP and nebulizers
- Bathroom and shower aids
- Hospital beds
Respite care is provided to you when your family/caregivers need time away. Patients are placed in a contracted facility for a length of time in accordance with plan benefits (typically up to 5 days). The contracted facility will provide care with the hospice interdisciplinary members to continue making visits and maintain emergency/crisis availability.
- Respite care for your caregiver may help prevent:
- Stress, Illness, and Reduced Immunity due to Lack of Sleep
Bereavement care is an essential component of hospice care that includes anticipating grief reactions and providing ongoing support for the bereaved for a year or more after your loved one has passed.
Grieving and mourning are normal. You may experience grief as a mental, physical, social, or emotional reaction. Mental reactions can include anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness, and despair. Physical reactions can include sleeping problems, changes in appetite, physical problems, or illness. At Eden Hospice, we are committed to providing information, counseling, and resources for any reaction you may experience.
Each of us takes their own journey through grief and healing. Allow yourself to open up to the idea that not every person experiences and deals with the loss of a loved one in the same way. As there are many cultural and or religious practices supported in communities to help those facing loss, understand that there is no “one way” or “one plan” that can work for everybody.
- Hospice bereavement programs focus on:
- Helping family members understand and move forward in the grief process by enabling their expression of thoughts and feelings and helping them identify or develop healthy coping strategies.
- Helping families problem-solve around adjustment issues.
- Providing guidance about decision-making.
- Addressing social and spiritual concerns.
- Assisting survivors to adapt to an environment without the deceased.
At Eden Hospice, we are committed to providing information, counseling, and resources. Our Support Groups can help manage the everyday care and emotional challenges of caring for a dying loved one. Our team of professionals and volunteers address the emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients and those who love and care for them.

About Eden Home Care
Eden Home Care provides non-medical services that can greatly impact your health and well-being. If you or a loved one is struggling with prolonged illness, recovery from surgery, physical or developmental disabilities, or simply the challenges of aging—Eden Home Care can help! We offer a coordinated suite of social, advisory, wellness, and even cleaning services to give you the extra assistance or companionship needed so you may stay as independent as possible in the comfort of your own home.
We are devoted to providing the most professional, reliable, and friendly caregivers in the industry. We make sure you are matched with a trusted and friendly home care provider, and services and schedules are tailored to your needs. Caregivers are available for hourly, daily, weekly, overnight, and 24-hour care assignments.
Assistance with Daily Living
Assistance with Daily Living
Activities of daily living are routine activities that people do every day. In-home, personal care services can help you remain safe, independent, and engaged in life by providing assistance with these activities. Professional caregivers such as home health aides (HHAs) or certified nursing assistants (CNAs) can provide ongoing assistance with what are commonly called activities of daily living (ADLs), such as:
Toileting, and Incontinence Care
Maintaining a senior’s dignity is very important. Our trained caregivers understand how it may be uncomfortable to need assistance with toileting or incontinence care. That’s why there is a high degree of compassion and concern about making sure that client’s dignity is maintained when providing these services.
Transferring and Positioning
Moving and placing clients in correct posture position helps promote health and safety and proper functioning. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing and digestion.
Dressing, Grooming, Bathing, and Hygiene
Seniors often need help with dressing, grooming, bathing, and basic hygiene. These services are important in maintaining the client’s physical well-being and often also have an impact on their mental well-being. Being clean and having a more attractive appearance can give seniors a new outlook and help decrease depression.
Mobility and Transfer Assistance
Being able to move about often helps build stamina and can also lead to improvements in increasing energy levels. We provide clients with mobility assistance, which can include getting out of their home.
Assistance with Feeding
Whether it is the result of an accident or another medical reason, there are individuals who may need assistance with feeding themselves. The trained caregivers at Eden can provide the necessary support and make sure that every effort is made to understand the individual and what he or she is coping with.
We help you gain confidence in your daily life by providing assistance for a range of tasks. Many people find that they can continue living independently even longer with the assistance of home care services, which may include:
A growing number of adults are currently taking at least one medication, while nearly one-third of adults take more than four prescription medications at the same time. Remembering to take medications on time can be a challenge, especially for the elderly. Eden Home Care can assist with reading labels and reminding seniors to take their appropriate medications.
Having help with washing, drying, and putting away the laundry can help older adults conserve their energy for more important tasks. Sometimes these services are done in the home and other times assistance can be provided to clients at a laundromat.
Keeping up with housekeeping can be a challenge for many seniors. While Eden Home Care is not a maid service, our caregivers can provide light housekeeping services including dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms, and kitchens. Caregivers also help organize drawers and closets and make sure things are picked up to avoid slips and falls.
Nutrition is very important and helping prepare nutritious meals is often the little extra help a senior needs. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, and some even participate in cooking activities so they become involved in as much or as little as their ability and desire allow. Often just having someone to eat a meal with makes a significant difference.
Many seniors have a problem getting to the store, picking up prescriptions, running errands, going to the beauty salon, and getting to doctor’s appointments. Although we’re not a taxi, ambulance, or limousine service, many Eden Home Care locations provide transportation in conjunction with other personal care and support services. By providing transportation to the doctor’s office, seniors are better able to avoid unnecessary readmission to a hospital or other facility. A trip to the beauty salon is often just what a senior needs to lift their spirits.
For those who live alone, have declining mobility, or who are somewhat isolated from other family members and friends, companion care services can be a wonderful way to enhance your quality of life while improving safety and wellbeing. Social interactions have been shown to have a critical impact on life expectancy and overall health and wellbeing. And there are additional benefits to be gained when using a home care agency to find the right person as a companion. Companion caregivers also provide peace of mind to concerned family members who are unable to provide continuous assistance for their loved ones.
At Eden Home Care, we understand the special challenges of older adults who suffer from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia or memory loss and the stress this places on family caregivers. It is important that a patient’s routines are maintained in a comfortable, safe, and familiar environment. It is also important to have experienced caregivers who have been trained to compassionately manage behaviors such as agitation, wandering, mental confusion, and other conditions associated with dementia. We are committed to offering long term caregiver relationships, for consistency and emotional bonding, to provide comfort and companionship. Our caregivers often feel as though they have become members of the family.
A caregiver, who is a certified dementia specialist with advanced dementia training, is hand-selected to provide care and receives individualized instruction from the care manager on specific needs on an ongoing basis. A care plan is created that includes tasks and activities to create a meaningful and enjoyable day.
Regular follow-up visits are performed by the care manager to re-assess the current level of dementia, making changes to activities according to the results. Each family will receive access to education and personalized training from our care managers.
Home care services can also be used as a source of respite for family or caregivers. Many family caregivers take pride in the care they provide to their loved ones, but the physical, mental, and emotional demands of caring for a family member can be overwhelming at times. Caregiving is a difficult job and very few people are equipped to do it alone. Getting help is essential for your health, which is critical for your loved one.
Whether it’s for a few hours or a long vacation, Eden Home Care can provide the support and relief needed. Respite care can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote the necessary life balance.
There are a number of options for respite support. We will often arrange for a free in-home evaluation to discuss the type and length of respite care needed, and a plan of service will be developed.
Get Started With Your FREE In-Home Assessment
Helping our patients achieve superior outcomes often begins with our no-cost, in-home evaluation process. During our Free In-Home Assessment, we will meet with you and your family and jointly determine the scope of care. We conduct in-depth assessment of you or your loved one’s lifestyle, medical conditions, and the kind of assistance needed.
