We have all heard of the expression, "Home is where the heart is.” There is no better place to recover from a surgical procedure, illness, or condition than one's own home. It is the place where family, friends, and familiar surroundings make you feel more comfortable and recover faster. 1st Option Home Health's home care services are provided by highly trained home health care professionals dedicated to the care and comfort of our patients. 1st Option Home Health is Medicare certified.
As a leading home health provider, 1st Option welcomes both self-referrals as well as physician-directed referrals. You can contact us directly or through your doctor's office. In the event that you are in the hospital, discuss your choice of 1st Option Home Healthwith your physician prior to discharge, and the social services department will contact us. We offer a variety of services to help you get better quickly at home.
