Home Health

About

Recovering from injury or illness, or managing a chronic condition can be physically and emotionally draining. That’s why Tabitha’s professional home health care teams provide customized support including rehabilitation therapies, medication management, skilled nursing care and other medical services based on your individual condition or disease process.

Home health care is an excellent option for managing your care needs without ever having to leave your familiar surroundings. Understanding home health care choices and parameters is the first step to regaining your independence and enjoying life again.

Tabitha Home Health care offers a full suite of medical and personal care services to help our clients recover at home, find freedom from chronic pain or illness, and continue living life in just the way they imagined.

Vivian’s Story

Vivian spent the prime of her life as a nurse, saving lives and teaching others. During those years, she couldn’t imagine one day needing help of her own. But that day came and after a stay at the hospital for congestive heart failure and respiratory issues, Vivian and her family found themselves needing help.

Tabitha Home Health Care began supporting Vivian with nursing care following the hospital stay and has continued supporting her several years on with caregiver visits and clinical services. A team of home health aides and nursing staff work together with Vivian’s family and physician to manage her illness, keeping her independent and out of the hospital.

Vivian’s Tabitha Home Health Care nurse explains that the partnership between a trusting client, supportive loved ones, home health provider and personal physician is extremely important in maintaining Vivian’s health, and it is this team effort that has helped Vivian stay at home.

Why Tabitha

Tabitha Home Health Care supports clients with:

  • Nursing care specializing in cancer, heart conditions, orthopedics, respiratory conditions, IV therapy, wound, foot and diabetic care, and post-surgery care
  • Physical therapy to improve mobility, strength, activity tolerance and fall prevention
  • Occupational therapy to improve self-care skills, mobility and coordination
  • Speech/language therapy to improve communication, memory, cognition and swallowing
  • Dietitian instruction to improve nutrition and diet as ordered by your physician
  • Personal care and bathing assistance
  • Social work and future planning

Every care plan developed by Tabitha Home Health Care begins with a home safety evaluation. During this process the living environment is assessed for risk factors from mobility/fall hazards to nutritional needs, hygiene processes, emergency care access and more. Once risks are mitigated or eliminated, home health care staff may provide ongoing education and training to the client and their family members or other loved ones in order to maintain safe and secure surroundings where the client can continue to progress and thrive. Tabitha Home Health Care team members are professionally trained and fully vetted with thorough background and reference checks to ensure the safety and security of every client we serve.

Home health care is a wonderfully flexible system that can be personalized on an ongoing, real-time basis. It is often less expensive, more convenient and equally effective as care received in a living community or rehabilitation center.

From Lincoln to Nebraska City, York and Grand Island, Tabitha Home Health Care is provided through an extensive southeast Nebraska geographical area. 

Non-Medical In-Home Support

Through a local partnership, Tabitha can help you or your loved one get in-home support including:

Tabitha's partner caregivers are professionally trained and fully vetted with thorough background and reference checks to ensure the safety and security of every client served. In-Home Support is often paired with Tabitha home health care services and is offered in Lincoln, NE. 

In-Home Technology

Tabitha is proud to offer advanced health care technology at your fingertips to help seniors stay healthy and safe at home, wherever they call home.

VoiceCare emergency response supports independent living with a secure, reliable and live voice-to-voice system. Clients simply wear a personal activator button that, when pressed, will contact designated responders such as family, neighbors or emergency response personnel.

For families who live far away, it’s an extra measure to ensure their loved ones’ health and safety, even when they can’t be there. Tabitha's advances in technology can help close the distance between your loved one and the care they need.
