Home Based Services

Home Health Services

Home health care is a blend of health care and social services, which are provided in the home to promote, maintain, or restore health or to minimize the effects of illness or disability. These services are appropriate when homebound patients’ needs can be met with the support of professional health care workers on a part-time basis. It can be an alternative to extended hospital stays and long-term care. Ministry Home Care providers formulate an individualized treatment plan to help you live as fully and independently as possible.

Patients remain in their home while the skilled team of professionals comes to care for them in the environment where they’re most comfortable. The home health staff members provide the care during intermittent visits, and provide education to the patient and/or caregiver, so the care can be continued between professional visits.

Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies provide funding for doctor-ordered home health services. We can help make sense of your coverage. Through our Community Care program, we work with patients and their families to be able to afford home health services. We are patient-focused, and strive to be fiscally responsible, conscientiously stewarding the funding provided for our patients' care.

Hospice Services

Hospice care is a service to support people by providing end-of-life care when the patient’s condition is considered terminal and the patient is no longer receiving curative treatment. The hospice team works with patients to manage pain and symptoms so that their remaining time may be spent in peace and dignity.

Dedicated to quality of life, hospice offers a support system of professional staff and volunteers who assist the patient and their family in meeting their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Hospice care stresses the importance of human needs that go beyond the physical care of the patient. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death; hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process.

While Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies provide some funding for hospice care, many patients are uninsured or under-insured. Ministry will not turn these patients away. As part of our mission, we provide this important end-of-life care to everyone who is medically eligible, regardless of their ability to pay. We rely on the support of individuals and organizations to make this possible.
