Home Healthcare Nurses provide at-home nursing care for patients, often as follow-up care after discharge from a hospital or from a rehabilitation, longterm care, or skilled nursing facility.
Home Healthcare Physical Therapists provide treatment to individuals to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and function throughout life. This includes providing treatment in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors.
Home Healthcare Speech Language Pathologists assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, and fluency.
Home Healthcare Occupational Therapists work with individuals, families, Insurance assessments for long term groups and communities to facilitate health and well-being through engagement or re-engagement in occupation.
Home Healthcare Medical Social Workers assess the psychosocial functioning of patients and families and intervene as necessary.

Home Health Aides assist elderly, disabled, and ill patients to live in their own homes rather than in a health care facility. HHAs contribute to the efficiency and quality of the health care system. The primary role of the HHA is to perform assistive duties, such as personal hygiene, grooming, transfers (bed to chair), range-of-motion exercises (moving the joints), and proper positioning of the patient.
Ambercare is looking for exceptional people with a tremendous capacity for caring to offer their services as a hospice volunteer. Hospice volunteers invariably say that this experience changes them. They learn to communicate in ways that increase their own appreciation of life, and their approach to daily living takes on a more holistic perspective. They gain a great deal of inner knowledge and are rewarded with personal satisfaction.
