Home Health Care

When you or your loved ones need assistance with day-to-day health and personal care or the support to manage a new or chronic health condition, you can rely on home health care services from Ballad Health.

Get Skilled Health Care Without Leaving Home

  • A registered nurse (RN) on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week

  • Assistance with processing claims from commercial insurance providers, TennCare and Medicare
  • The Safer Steps program, which can help you become more independent by reducing your chance of falling in your home.

Telehealth (Telemedicine) Services

Ask your Ballad Health home health care team if you qualify for telehealth services, a remote monitoring program to help you better manage your chronic health condition.

Using wireless, at-home devices, your care team can communicate with you, recognize important indicators (warning signs?) as early as possible and help avoid unnecessary hospitalizations by keeping track of several vital signs, including your:

  • Blood pressure and pulse
  • Blood oxygen level
  • Blood sugar (glucose)
  • Heart rhythm
  • Weight

You might be a candidate for telehealth remote monitoring if you live with a chronic health condition such as:

  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Diabetes
  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
