Healthcare Services and Programs
Our patients' paths to wellness sometimes require they continue care at home after they leave OhioHealth Acute or Inpatient Rehabilitation. We provide the expert home health care that can help patients recover, maintain independence and experience the highest possible quality of life — in the comfort of home.
Home Health Rehabilitation at OhioHealth
We like to call it the OhioHealth difference: the largest on-staff team of clinically trained home health caregivers in central Ohio, including nursing and physical, occupational and speech therapy teams. It's just one of many things that makes OhioHealth Home Health Rehabilitation unique.
Our Home Health Rehabilitation therapists:
- Treat a broad range of patients, including those with sports injuries, stroke, neurological diseases and more.
- Receive the same clinical training and support that has made OhioHealth's name synonymous with excellence. They are experts in their fields and areas of specialty.
- Keep a watchful eye on their patients' progress to evolve goals and help them return to normal daily living activities.
- Often help patients by including caregivers or loved ones in their therapy process. Our staff routinely shares tips, strategies and instructions that can help patients between therapist visits.
Length of Home Health care varies based on a patient's needs and insurance coverage. Learn more about accepted insurance plans.
Home Health Rehabilitation is a Medicare- and Medicaid-certified home health service, and it is a provider for most health insurance plans.

What to expect from Home Health Rehabilitation Services
Safety is job #1 for each member of the Home Health Rehabilitation staff. That's because challenges at home can be so different from those at inpatient facilities. Physical, occupational and speech therapists work with patients at home to ensure they can live there safely. In the first session, patients are evaluated by therapists who help them set meaningful goals.
Those goals might include:
- Getting in and out of the front door safely
- Going up and down stairs at home
- Navigating home hallways in a wheelchair
- Getting out of a favorite easy chair
Therapists can make recommendations for patients' home safety including:
- Installing grab bars on their patients' beds and showers
- Adding a shower chair in bathrooms
- Installing a second banister on staircases
- Adding ramps for wheelchair access
