Home Health Care
Welcome to CFS Home Health Care
There are two primary types of home health care services, though sometimes it can be hard to determine which is the right fit for you. Within Community First’s health care continuum, we offer both clinical and non-clinical support you can count on by one trusted provider.
Colonial at Home provides non-clinical support to help with everyday activities like bathing, dressing, meal preparation and household tasks to enable independence and safety. This type of home care can be customized to your loved one’s specific needs and does not require any qualifying medical conditions or a physician referral. This service is private pay. Rates are billed hourly, and there is a minimum visit of two hours.
Bridges Rehab at Home provides short-term clinical nursing care and therapy following an injury or illness. To be eligible for services, you must have a temporary homebound status and be referred by a physician. Home health care is generally reimbursed through Medicare or insurance plans.
