Services We Offer

Whether you are recovering from an illness, surgery, or need temporary assistance managing your health, our highly skilled professionals are backed by the resources, depth and the mission of Providence Health & Services Alaska.

A medical prescription from your MD, DO, or DPM, is required for Home Health professional health care services. Many of our patients are referred by local and out of state hospitals, as well as community physicians from around our great state. Most insurances require you to be homebound while we provide our intermittent skilled care.

Intermittent Skilled Nursing Services

Nurses provide a wide range of professional services, including, but not limited to, medication management, wound care, ostomy education and care, diabetes, COPD, CHF education and management, behavioral health, catheter management, as well as palliative care. We work directly with your personal MD and you to establish the best treatment plan for your immediate needs. Nurses connect you with other specialists and community resources when appropriate, to support your overall treatment plan.

Rehabilitation/Therapy Services

Depending on your plan of treatment, our qualified therapists provide physical therapy, occupation therapy and speech therapy as prescribed by your doctor.

Medical and/or Licensed Clinical Social Work Services

Clinical social workers provide the assistance needed to help support a short and long term health care plan. They are able to connect you and your loved ones to community resources that enhance your individual treatment plan.

Chaplain Services

Chaplains are able to provide spiritual care in person or by phone.  

Home Health Aide Services

Some insurances will pay for home health aide care while receiving intermittent skilled care from our nursing and/or therapy staff. This may include bathing, showering, shaving and dressing.

A registered nurse is on-call 24 hours per day seven days a week. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, VA, and private health insurance.

Late 2020 will bring Home Health to the future with the start-up of our newly developed remote patient monitoring project.
