Memorial Hermann Home Care provides Medicare-certified care for you in your own home–promoting safety, health and independence. Home Health Services is staffed by experienced, licensed clinicians who are trained to provide in-home nursing care, wound care and rehabilitation. Usually covered by insurance, skilled home health nurses and therapists visit you in the comfort of your home under the direction of your physician.

Our competent, compassionate team of nurses and therapists helps you maintain your independence in your own home. They teach you or family members how to safely do the things needed to manage your medical condition at home, such as correctly take your medications, care for your wounds or other complex nursing needs. Our full-service respiratory care program includes oxygen services as well as CPAP and BiPAP. Through these services, we relieve families from having to do medical management and clinical caregiving, so they can spend more quality time together.
