Home Health

When you or a loved one is recovering from an illness or injury, or managing multiple chronic diseases (such as COPD, diabetes, high blood pressure or CHF), there’s no place like home for rest, healing and comfort. And there’s no team like Baton Rouge General Home Health to support you. When your doctor prescribes our home health services, an experienced team of medical professionals work closely with your doctor on a unique plan of care. Available 24/7, our nurses, social workers, therapists, nurse aides and other healthcare professionals take pride in being there for you and your family as we help you regain your health, strength and independence. We do everything to keep you safely at home and out of the hospital as you heal.
