Enloe Medical Center has been providing quality home care to patients in Chico and the surrounding area for more than 20 years. We are known for our clinical quality and high patient satisfaction.
In the comfort of a patient’s own home, our caregivers provide quality nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, medical social services, and home health assistance. Based on a physician’s plan, our team teaches patients and their families about the patient’s illness, self-care, and proper lifting and care techniques.
Wound, Ostomy & Continence
Enloe Home Health’s Wound, Ostomy and Continence program sends nurses to monitor wounds and teach patients and their families proper wound care. Enloe also offers a clinic for wound and ostomy services.
When might someone need home health care?
A person may need home health care after a recent hospitalization or after the birth of a child. Home health care services also help with the increased needs of care as we age. It is also available to help manage a chronic illness, or with rehabilitation after a surgery or injury.
How is the service paid for?
Medicare, Medi-Cal and most private insurances cover all of the costs of care, though some private insurances have a co-pay or provide partial coverage. Enloe HomeCare is committed to providing care, and special arrangements for financial hardship can be made through Patient Financial Services.
Financial assistance is available through Enloe Medical Center’s Billing Help Line at 530-332-6300, which is answered by financial counselors. Learn more about billing.
How does care begin?
A patient, family member or your physician can begin the process by calling us at 530-332-6050. As physician oversight and approval is needed to initiate a treatment plan, we work closely with physicians to determine appropriate needs.
Where can care be provided?
HomeCare can be provided in many places of residence, including your own home or apartment, while temporarily staying at a friend or family member’s residence, or a residential care facility. HomeCare is not provided in a skilled nursing facility.
