Adventist Health Home Care Among Nation’s Home Care Elite
 

November 19, (Clearlake, CA): Adventist Health Home Care Services in Lake County were named to the 2012 HomeCare Elite list compiled by Outcome Concept Systems, Inc. (OCS), a Seattle-based company providing data products and benchmark services for home health, hospice and private duty agencies. The performance criteria included: quality of care, quality improvement, patient experience, process measure implementation, and financial performance. 

"Our goal is to provide the best and safest care possible, and this distinction further validates our commitment to quality and dedication to our mission," stated Sherry Mendoza, chief operating officer of Home Care Services for Adventist Health.

If you or a loved one has health problems due to disability, surgery or chronic or acute illness, you could benefit from home care services by staying at home and still receiving the care you need. Often, home care services can help you avoid hospitalization or decrease the time you stay in the hospital. Home Care’s team of nurses and other professionals offers treatment as well as education, to you and your family members. The team will teach you how to manage health care needs safely and confidently, especially when care includes complicated medications, procedures and/or medical equipment at home.

"This award comes during our recognition of November as Home Care Month," stated Patricia Rutherford, Director of Home Care Services. "Our Home Care team is committed to providing excellent care, right at home. It is a pleasure to work with such a dedicated group of health care professionals." 

Adventist Health Home Care offers specialized skilled services, including rehabilitative exercises and instruction. To access Home Care Services, please talk with your primary care provider about a referral.
