Medi Home Health and Hospice, Virginia
Who We Are
Medi Home Health and Hospice helps an individual and their family share the best days possible as they live with a life limiting illness. Care is available 24 hours per day by a special team of caregivers chosen to meet the unique needs of clients and their families. A nurse provides care and instructions on dictations, assesses symptoms, and communicates with personal physicians. A social worker assesses resource needs and provides support to patients and their families. A home health aide provides personal care and some homemaker services. Volunteers run errands, or even just sit and read to patients. A chaplain is available for spiritual support.
The program serves anyone who is in the end stages of a life limiting illness such as heart failure, lung disease, liver failure, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, ALS, or if there is a sudden decline in health with no specific reason. Care is provided in the comfort of the private home, a personal care home, assisted living facility, in the hospital (under special arrangements) or in a nursing home.
Medi Home Health and Hospice continues to provide support to family members through mailings and phone calls to see how they are doing. A grief counselor is available to provide individual counseling and support if needed.
