Why Home Care?
Studies show that patients often recover more quickly at home.
As Nebraska’s first home care agency, Regional West Home Care was founded in 1967 with the mission of providing comprehensive in-home and supportive services for patients and their families. We offer a variety of services from short-term to long-term management care for different illnesses and conditions.
Our home care team helps patients adapt to their new at-home healthcare routine while providing care otherwise only available in a hospital or nursing home setting. This can save patients from undue stress and expense while often affording them the chance to play an active role in their recovery.
What types of services do you provide?
Our services can include: observation and assessment; teaching and training; medication administration (intravenous or injection); tube feedings; tracheotomy care; catheter care; wound and ostomy care; psychiatric, rehabilitative, and advanced illness services and private duty care.
Who will provide my care?
Regional West Home Care provides exceptional care through: RNs, LPNs, physical therapists, medical social workers, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and aide services.
Is home care covered by insurance?
Home care expenses can be paid by the patient and their family or through a variety of public and private sources. Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Administration, Social Services, and the Older Americans Act are a few of the public third party sources that may cover home care expenses.
Private payers may also cover expenses. They include private insurance, long-term care insurance, managed care organizations, and workers' compensation. Some community organizations, such as local chapters of the American Cancer Society, the Alzheimer’s Association, and the National Easter Seal Society also provide funding to help pay for home care services.
Because each situation is unique, we welcome your phone call, and will be happy to discuss your options.
Home care sounds like the right choice for me. What’s the next step?
Tell your physician, provider, nurse, social worker, or family member that you’d like more information, or give us a call. We’ll arrange a time to visit with you, your family, and/or any authorized representative and discuss your individual needs.
