A*Med Home Health

Caring, Comfort, Compassion...for all your home health care needs.

Philosophy, Mission, and Vision
A*Med Home Health's philosophy is founded on the principle that home health care is an essential component in the delivery of health care. The agency is committed to providing the highest quality services to its clients. It is A*Med's belief that by utilizing and collaborating its resources in the continuum of care, quality and excellence are achieved.

A*Med's mission is to provide excellent care and achieve positive outcomes for its clients through comprehensive, cost effective, and quality services. Enhancing the health and well being of its clients promotes wellness. Utilization of available resources, consumer surveys, staff involvement, state and federal regulations, recognition of community and industry needs, technology, education, self evaluation, leadership, and financial stability will promote this mission.

A*Med's Board of Directors, in 2002, developed a vision statement to confirm its belief that Home Care is an essential part of the health care delivery system. Our agency's focus is to improve the quality of care available to the communities we serve.

Private Pay Services
Our goal is to help you maintain your highest level of independence through our in-home services. These services are available 4-24 hours daily.

During your initial visit our coordinator will perform an assessment of your environment, lifestyle, and health status to create an individualized plan to meet your needs. We work together with you, your family, and anyone else you designate to assist in meeting your needs.
