UM Chester River Home care helps patients maintain optimal health and independence in their home setting, which can include a family residence, a group home or a residential care facility. We undertake several initiatives to help our patients achieve and maintain optimal health in their home settings, including:

  • Educating patients and their families to properly use equipment at home
  • Ensuring compliance with medication and rehabilitation regime
  • Assisting hospitals and physicians in decreasing patient hospital length of stay and readmissions
  • Increasing safety awareness
  • Decreasing fall risk.

Working with a patient's primary health care provider, our home care team develops an individualized program of care to meet the patient's needs. Each patient will receive a detailed care plan, and progress will be reviewed and care plans updated as necessary every 60 days

Our skilled nursing services include:

  • Cardiac care
