What do we do?
Duke Home Health (DHH) provides home health services for adult and pediatric patients needing nursing, rehabilitation (including physical, occupational and speech language pathology therapies) and home health assistance.
When medically necessary, our services help patients adapt and recover from illness or injury in the comfort of their home.
Our JCAHO accredited home health services are designed to meet the needs of the patientwhile she/he remains in his or her home. With today's shorter hospital stays, many patients benefit from home health services, which may include nursing services, rehabilitation services and/or social work.
In collaboration with the patient's physician, an individualized plan of care is developed for each patient allowing them to remain at home and maintain their independence while attending to their medical conditions.
