Home Health Care

Quality In-Home Care

Scripps Home Health Care offers quality health care in the place people are most comfortable — their home.

Our professional team of nurses, therapists and other staff provides personalized attention and cost-effective care, allowing patients to remain as independent as possible.

Home health care is for patients who require skilled intermittent care.

Additionally, we coordinate home health care with other programs at Scripps, including palliative care and hospice.

Who Qualifies for Home Health Care?

Home health care is for homebound patients who:

  • Require skilled intermittent (part-time) care
  • Have a physician to order care, and follow up
  • Be homebound (either patient’s own home or that of a friend/relative—not a skilled nursing facility)
