Our goal at Magnolia Home Health Agency is to teach patients and their families independence and knowledge of their health and to keep them in the community.

Magnolia Home Health is a Medicare-certified agency.  In order to enter a Medicare-certified home care program, a person must have the need for “skilled care” provided by a registered nurse, physical therapist or occupational therapist.  The patient must also be homebound and under the care of a physician.  Once these requirements are met, the patient may be eligible to receive other home care services.

We accept referrals from hospitals, physicians, and rehab facilities.  We serve qualifying individuals residing permanently or temporarily within a 35-mile radius.  We accept many different sources of payment including Medicare, Medicaid, Worker’s Compensation, Commercial Insurance, and private pay.

Skilled Nursing

Upon admission to Magnolia Home Health Agency, a registered nurse will make an evaluation visit to your home.  A collaborative plan of treatment will be developed with your input, approved by your physician, and implemented by our team.  This personalized plan will be reviewed every sixty days, through consultation with your physician.

Physical Therapy

A physical therapist provides treatment and instruction to help restore a patient to his/her highest level of function.  Therapy may focus on overall strengthening, or on a specific problem caused by an injury, illness or surgery.  Instruction is also given to family members who are encouraged to participate in the treatment plan.

Point of Care Documentation

All licensed staff has been highly trained in point of care charting.  Computerized charting is done in the patient’s home to enhance patient involvement.  The system provides better communications between the patient and the caregiver.

Home Based Telemonitoring

Telehealth is a home monitoring system that provides daily clinical information on the patient’s health status.  Monitoring is for patients with diagnoses such as heart failure, lung disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.  We offer the ability to assess the patient’s weight, blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen levels using a small computer left in the patient’s home.  The computer then transmits the information to a nurse who monitors the patient’s status and communicates with the patient’s physician.
