Once the decision is made by you and your doctor to get home health services, A Loving Heart staff will come to your home for an assessment of your medical condition and needs. We will work with you and your doctor to set up a plan of care, including the services, treatments and equipment needed.
At A Loving Heart Home Health Care LLC, our goal is to help our clients achieve the best quality of life possible. We understand that one solution does not fit every situation so we take the time to listen and learn about each client's needs and preferences. This enables us to tailor a care program that maximizes the client's independence and dignity.
Understandably, most seniors prefer to stay in the familiar comfort of their own homes. This is more doable than you may think. We can arrange for medical and non-medical visits from registered nurses, physical therapists, social workers and home care aides.
We are a Passport Provider and accept private pay.

Physical therapists assess and treat people with problems from injury or illness. They develop individual treatment plans that address disorders of nerves and muscles, limits in range of motion, poor balance, weakness, and difficulty walking or getting around. Therapists teach patients exercise plans that may reduce recovery time and help them reach their previous functional level.
The goal of physical therapy is to help you rain strength and movement.
Occupational therapists assess and treat patients who had injury or illness leading to limitations in activities of daily living. Occupational Therapy focuses on the restoration of the functional aspects of daily living. This includes training to increase independence in dressing, bathing, combing your hair and other general household activities.
