Home Health


To reach Goodland Regional Home Health Agency, please call our direct line at 785-890-7685.

Home health is designed to allow individuals to safely return home after injury, illness or hospitalization. Chronic diseases and conditions often require extensive medical management and frequent monitoring of your health status, however, not everyone is physically or cognitively able to return to their physician's office for such frequent visits. It is during these times, home health care professionals can provide short-term or long-term care in the comfort of your home under the direction of your primary physician.

Home health care offers a wide range of specialized services tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Many of the services you receive in the hospital are now available to you in your own home.

We at Goodland Regional Home Health Agency aim to improve our community's quality of life by providing you the tools and knowledge needed to stay safely in the comfort and security of your own home during times of illness, disability and recuperation.

Home health is available to people 18 years and older with either acute or chronic conditions. The home health staff will work with you and/or your family to teach them about their condition as well as how to care for themselves or their loved one.

Home health care is intermittent, with the frequency of visits dependent on each patient's condition and needs. Home health care is not continuous or respite care.

How do I Qualify:
We must have a physician's order to provide care.
Have a need for a skilled nurse or therapist: new wound, new medical condition or diagnosis, new catheter, recent fall, difficulty managing diabetes, recent hospitalization, recent discharge from hospital/nursing home, increased shortness of breath, or new or changed medications to name a few.
You must be homebound. You are considered "confined to home" if the you have a condition, due to illness or injury, that restricts your ability to leave home except with the assistance of another individual or the aid of a supportive device (such as crutches, a cane, a wheelchair or a walker), or if you have a condition such that leaving home is medically contraindicated. While an individual does not have to be bedridden to be considered "homebound", the condition of the individual should be such that there exists a normal inability to leave home, that leaving home requires a considerable and taxing effort by the individual. You can be temporarily homebound.
You must have a face-to-face encounter with your physician with 90 days prior to or within 30 days after starting home health services.
