Nurse and CNA's in your home
Worth County Public Health offers home care to the residents of Worth County.  Our goal is to keep you in your home safely as long as possible.

Nursing:  We have nurses who provide skilled services in your home.  We offer both short term and long term care.  Whether you need assistance after coming home from the hospital or you need assistance with your medication set up, we are here to assist you.  We can bill your insurance or you can pay privately according to your income.  Some of the skills we provide are assessments, INR's, blood draws, wound care (including wound VACs), injections, catheter care, colostomy care, teaching, medication management, and others.

Home Care Aides:  We have certified nurse aides that complete a 75 hour certified course and 16 more hours of training to care for you in your home.  Our HCAs provide personal cares, which includes bathing, shampoo, shaving, catheter care, hoyer lifts, and others.

Homemakers:  Our homemakers are also certified nurses aides.  They provide light housekeeping which includes vacuuming, dusting, floors, laundry, errands, bathrooms, or other light cleaning you are unable to do yourself due to your health.

Respite:  Our home care aides will provide short term and intermittent respite for an individual that is providing daily cares to a friend or family member.
