Healing in the Comfort of Your Home
After hospitalization or because of a medical condition, you or a loved one might need help at home. Through Virtua Home Health Care, patients can recover in the comfort of their own home. Our skilled staff helps patients readjust to daily life and help prevent repeat hospitalizations or unnecessary emergency room visits.
Serving residents of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties since 1995, Virtua Home Health Care provides patients of all ages with the following services:
- In-home nursing
Registered nurses coordinate services you needed for recovery, explain care needs to family, monitor vital signs and progress, and update the patient's doctor.
- Physical, occupational or speech therapy
Following an evaluation, therapists create an individualized plan to increase function and quality of life.
Patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, COPD and congestive heart failure can have their vital signs monitored from home. Telehealth technology transmits their heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels and weight to a nurse at Virtua Home Health Care for constant monitoring.
- Nutritional support
Registered dietitians teach patients how nutrition aids in their recovery.
- Social work
Social workers help patients cope with issues related to illness, the recovery process and body image following amputation, mastectomy or other major changes. They make sure patients understand their rehabilitation needs and help them find community resources.
