Home Care Services
Understanding the Role of Home Health Services
Crozer-Keystone's Home Health Services provide care in the comfort of patients' homes. These patients may be newly discharged from the hospital, referred directly by physicians' offices.
Coordinated Team Approach to Care
Health care and supportive skilled services are provided through a team approach that incorporates the quality care that has been a CKHS tradition. The Home Health team, a group of highly skilled professionals, works in cooperation with patients' physicians to formulate an individualized plan for care. Our registered nurses and therapists coordinate your home care services under your physician's guidance. Even though we keep your physician up-to-date on your home care progress, you will continue to make regular office visits.
Crozer-Keystone Health System (CKHS) offers home care services through our office at Drexeline Shopping Center.

Benefits of Home Health Care
There's no place like home" is a popular saying. Often, patients recover more quickly in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their own homes.
Through the use of a home health care program, patients and their families are assured that a highly skilled professional staff provides care for individuals or those making the transition from hospital to home.
Home health care may shorten or eliminate the need for an inpatient hospital stay or may help the patient delay or avoid a nursing home placement.
