Home Care

Home is comfortable and convenient, which is why being there is sometimes the best medicine. Our Carilion Clinic Home Care programs bring a wide range of high-quality services right to your door. Our electronic medical record allows you to rest easy, knowing that your in-home care is being coordinated with your doctors. You get exactly the care you need, from people you can trust.

We offer home care services for patients of all ages, not just the elderly. Ours is the area's only mother/baby care program. We provide at-home care for pediatric patients. We offer home-based physical therapy, speech language pathology and occupational therapy. We’re proud to partner with Philips Lifeline in making the Lifeline personal emergency response system available in our region, plus we offer sophisticated telehealth monitoring services to keep your doctor informed of your vital signs and symptoms without any need for office visits.

How to Get Home Health Care

Carilion Clinic provides home care services for patients who need help after being discharged from the hospital, but having been hospitalized is not a requirement for receiving home care. You can request home health services by calling 540-266-60000 or 800-964-9300. We’re here Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. On-call nurses are available after hours for any patient or referral source needs. Generally patients qualify for home health if they:

  • Have a medical condition that requires assessment by a skilled nurse or therapist
  • Are under the care of a physician
  • Have a medical condition requiring intermittent care and treatment
  • Have difficulty leaving home or need the assistance of others to do so

Because home health care is a convenient, cost-saving alternative to hospitalization it is covered under most private insurance plans, Medicare and Medicaid. Criteria for admission and reimbursement coverage vary. For your convenience, we will bill your insurance company directly. We’re available to answer questions, discuss your specific home care needs, explain services, and review insurance coverage options.
