Jefferson Family Home Care  of Fairbury, NE– the home health agency of Jefferson Community Health Center – had a lot to celebrate in November: November was home health month; the agency celebrates 30 years of service to the community this year; and they have recently been named to the nation’s and the state’s HomeCare Elite.
Home health patients and their families are grateful that the caring staff of Jefferson Family Home Care have been there to support them in so many ways.
Home care is designed to provide services for the homebound person who needs the skilled services of a nurse or therapist. Home health is patient-centered, and goals might include recovery from an illness, healing of wounds, getting a patient back on their feet and moving again, keeping them out of the hospital, or assistance with certain procedures or treatments.
