There are several ways for you or a loved one to obtain in-home care support services, and often times it depends on the level of care required, geographic location or the willingness of a physician to make a referral.
Due to long wait times for referrals or availability of services, many people are forced to remain in rehab facilities, transfer to nursing homes or sent home to unsafe conditions – which often leads to new injuries or illnesses, resulting in additional hospitalization.
At PHS we believe in promoting total wellness – including the health and wellness of individuals in their homes. We support this initiative with a robust selection of cost effective solutions for all life stages. Services can be provided at various frequencies and include 24-7, 365 Emergency Support.
