The mission of Asher Home Health Services is to provide medically appropriate care at home for all persons within a 25 mile radius from the Home Health office in Fossil with the exception to the 25 mile radius rule for patients that reside in the Northeast Wheeler County Health District. Services are provided to all homebound persons and to persons who a physician determines are unable to travel to a medical center provided they have traditional Medicare as their medical insurance. This prevents unnecessary use of hospitalization and skilled nursing facilities. Asher Home Health Services makes every effort to maintain the dignity of patients in their own residence.
Skilled Nursing Care: Registered nurses to assist the patient and family.
Certified Home Health Aide: Assist patient with prescribed self-help including personal grooming and needs for bathing.
Medical Supplies and Equipment: Supplies and equipment such as wheelchairs, walker, commodes, etc.
To qualify for home health care, a patient must:
• be “homebound” or have a normal inability to leave home without considerable assistance
• be under the care of a physician and obtain an order from the physician for home health care
• require the skills of a nurse on an intermittent basis and/or require the skills of physical therapy (when available) or a home health aide
