Home health is a service for the recovering, disabled, or chronically ill person, providing for treatment and/or effective functioning in the home environment.
Hitchcock Home Health is a licensed, Medicare certified agency, and has been serving Aiken County since 1971.
We offer a full range of services to physician referred, homebound patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
These services include nursing, nursing aide, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social work, and speech pathology.
Care is available from the most basic assistance to high-tech medical treatment, such as IV therapy and parenteral nutrition. Home care involves the individual and the family in the care that is delivered. The patient and the family are taught to participate in their health care, how to get well, and probably most important, how to stay well.
We accept Medicare assignment, Medicaid, private insurance and some United Way funds are available for indigent care.
