Home Care

FCHHA provides home health care and support services

“I want to express my sincere appreciation to you and your staff for the care you gave my brother after being admitted several times in the hospital. I especially want to thank the nurse who initially visited him to find out what he needed for services; for his other nurse who worked so diligently with his doctors to resolve his edema problem; for his occupational therapist, who worked on his breathing and the recommendations she gave him for items that would facilitate his bathing, and for his physical therapist, who worked on his balance and strength. I also want to acknowledge his social worker, who helped him with forms for his long term care and who gave us information on assisted living care. These are all very professional people who are truly dedicated to providing the best of care.”

“Mom’s LNA is like a ray of sunshine in our lives with her upbeat positive and caring personality. She is forever gentle with Mom and fullfils all of Mom’s ADLs in the morning with care, respect, dignity and skill. We are so pleased to have her on board to allow us to help Mom stay home as she proceeds through this disease. Thank you for hiring wonderful people who offer wonderful care. One can tell it’s not just a job – the care shines through.”

“Your staff is great.  Without them I know I would have to go to a home. I am very blessed to have them so I may still live at home.”

“The health care my mother-in-law received was excellent. They were very knowledgeable, kind, gentle and always willing to share tips so I could feel more confident.”

“Thank you for your good care of my aunt during her return home from the hospital, her illness at home and the transition between home and nursing home care. These life changing situations are never easy for anyone, least of all the patient. They are scary, confusing and unsettling, to say the least. Thank you for being there for all of us, to help problem solve and to listen.”

“If it wasn’t for you, a lot of people wouldn’t be able to come back home. Hope if I every need you, you’ll be there for me too.”
