Home Care and Physical Therapy
If you are recovering from an illness or injury, your physician may recommend home healthcare to help you return to an active lifestyle. At Professional Healthcare Resources, we provide skilled nursing services, providing you with high-quality care in the comfort and privacy of your own home. We understand that each situation is unique, and our caring and nurturing staff works with the patient, family and physician to establish a plan of care that fits each individual’s needs and goals.

Hospice is a philosophy of care
Hospice offers comfort and compassion for those at the end of life’s journey. Hospice neither hastens death nor does it prolong life. It provides care and support for the patient’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs, while offering support for family members. We understand that most people would prefer to spend their final time at home among family and friends, while still remaining under professional medical supervision. Our hospice care makes that possible through skilled nursing, personal assistance, and other support services.
Medicaid, Medicaid Waiver and Private Duty
40% of adults age 65 and up need daily assistance, and 70% will need it at some point. Whether assistance is needed for getting up in the morning, getting settled in the evening or just for the reassurance and peace of mind knowing that someone is there, Professional Healthcare Resources provides the private duty & personal care services and supportive elder care you need to remain safe and comfortable at home. For your payment convenience, we accept private pay as well as Medicaid and Medicaid Waivers. You will also find testimonials and the personal stories and experienced of our patients, employees, caregivers, and others.
