You Have The Right to Choose Your Home Care Provider

Why Choose Us?

TECHNOLOGY & PERSONAL ATTENTION

Foothills operates with the sensible balance of state-of-the-art technology and the compassionate, individual attention and care each person deserves. In addition to home nursing services, physical, occupational and speech therapies, as well as the services of a dietician, are available.

LIVING AT HOME . . . BUT NOT ALONE

Foothills provides medical social work services to help patients and families with the complexities of insurance and finances. If personal care is necessary, home health aides, supervised by a nurse, are available to help patients with the activities of daily living and to encourage independence.

BEYOND TRADITIONAL HOME HEALTHCARE

Foothills provides services in specialized areas, such as: mother and child care, wound care, IV therapy, and nutrition counseling. Telemonitoring, ultrasound, bladder scans, pulse oximetry and anticoagulation therapy are some of the technologically advanced services patients may receive in their homes.

SERVICES FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY

Foothills reaches into the community with events including flu vaccination clinics, blood pressure screenings, foot care clinics, and bereavement groups.

HOSPICE SERVICES

The mission of Foothills' Medicare-Certified Hospice Program is to enable people to spend the final days of their lives at home, in peace and comfort, with the loving support of their families; and with expert pain and symptom control provided by hospice trained nurses. In some cases, hospice services can also be provided in a skilled nursing facility or hospital.

AFFORDABLE HOME CARE

The cost of home care services are usually covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance plans. At Foothills, costs are not a barrier from providing the care a patient needs. Private donations help to cover the costs of care for those who may not have insurance coverage.
