What are Skilled Care Services?

There may be many things about home health care with which you are not familiar. First of all, it is one of the most valuable benefits offered by Medicare, yet one of the most underutilized. Experts/leaders in Medicare believe that this is due in large part to clinicians and recipients not having a clear understanding of the services offered. Able Palms Home & Health Care is a Medicare certified Home Health agency licensed in the State of Florida. We provide clinical Skilled Care Services, ordered by your Physician, throughout Pinellas and Pasco Counties. We work with your physician to carry out their orders and serve as their eyes and ears. Most importantly, we deliver compassionate care from the heart in the comfort of home. Each care plan is carefully tailored to suit the overall needs of the patient in their particular environment.

How great would it be if a nurse or therapist could bring their clinical skill and equipment right to your home for treatment! In addition, we’ll provide you education to live more independently and stay in your home longer. That’s what our home health care is all about. Able Palms can help you rehabilitate from medical events, such as stroke or surgery. We can also help you manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, COPD or chronic pain just to name a few. Simply put, home health care from Able Palms strives to enhance your recovery, have you remain at home, and live your life to its fullest.

“My mother, Shirley, used Able Palms Nurses and Therapists after she had her stroke in February. Her recovery process was long and hard, but we couldn’t have done it without you! Even though mom never regained all her strength and requires some assistance now, we could make a smooth transition by hiring your home care aides who she was familiar with already and they knew her…”
