Home Health Services

Your Partner in Recovery

Loyola Medicine Home Care delivers compassionate, personalized care in the comfort of your own home. Home healthcare is often the best solution for patients as they recover from an injury or illness. We will work closely with your physician and provide care to prevent the need for hospitalization. Home healthcare also can serve as a bridge between your recent hospitalization and a return to daily activities.

Loyola Medicine Home Care delivers quality home healthcare seven days a week and provides 24-hour, on-call access for clinical intervention and admissions. To ensure excellence, all aspects of patient care are managed by the primary nurse or therapist assigned to each patient. Biweekly care conferences involve the entire healthcare team. Loyola Medicine Home Care, which is certified by Medicare and licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health, consistently meets or exceeds national benchmarks for quality care.
