We provide specialist doctors, skilled nurses, and physiotherapists for home visits who have passed our rigorous hiring standards and have had their backgrounds and medical knowledge verified by senior doctors. We facilitate lab tests at home and medical equipment rentals, making health care more accessible for our patients. As the Medicare program describes, home health care is unique as a care setting not only because the care is provided in the home, but the care itself is "usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective" as care given in a hospital or skilled nursing facility. As a result of using our services, our patients are able to stay in their homes longer, save money, and have peace of mind.

Our goal is to ensure you are satisfied with your care and your goals are met. We focus on listening to your needs and partnering with you to provide the best care and treatment solutions. Our job at Save Your Health is simple: Listen, Understand, Partner, Solve, and enrich each life we serve. We believe home health serves you and your family, or caregivers, so our services include supporting, teaching, and educating your family members and/or caregivers. Additionally, we believe in a focus on your safety and confidence in the home allowing you to stay independent at home. We also partner with you and your physician to ensure your care plan meets these goals. At Save Your Health, our sales and clinical team members act as an extension of the physician’s office team, ensuring your doctor stays informed of your progress, goals and outcomes.

We recognize communication and care coordination with your physician is in the best interest of you and your care. We are working to be a part of the solution to our country’s healthcare challenge – to improve care while reducing cost. Our attention and effort is focused on appropriate care planning and the prevention of adverse events, such as re- hospitalizations, and the appropriate management of chronic conditions, ultimately decreasing the cost of healthcare.
