Lake Regional celebrates Home care and hospice month

November 28th, 2012 in News

During November, National Home Care and Hospice month, Lake Regional Home Health is reminding consumers about the benefits of home care.

Lake Regional Home Health provides quality care for people of all ages within the comfort and convenience of their own home. Home health care requires a team effort. Physicians, nurses, aides, rehab therapists, social workers, dietitians and family members provide patients with an effective treatment plan for a safe, positive recovery.

"Lake Regional Home Health offers an opportunity for patients to receive physician ordered care in their own homes," said Lisa Mitchell, R.N., BSN, director of Lake Regional Home Health. "Patients are happier and recuperate much faster in their own homes. Our goal is to return them to the level of independence they enjoyed before their illness or procedure."

Home health costs often are covered by private health insurance programs, Medicare, Medicaid, veterans' insurance, workers' compensation or automobile insurance. For more information on Medicaid and Medicare coverage, visit

Lake Regional Home Health is licensed and certified by Medicare/Medicaid to provide intermittent skilled care to homebound patients in Camden, Miller and parts of Morgan counties. It also is accredited by The Joint Commission. For more information, or to determine if you or a loved one are a candidate for home health care, call Lake Regional Home Health at 573-302-2860.
