Southern Illinois Home Care delivers safe and supportive services right at home to recovering, disabled, or chronically ill patients throughout St. Clair, Madison, and Monroe counties. Home care services allow you or your loved one to stay in the comfort of your own home while receiving medical attention and rehabilitative services.

“An individual may receive a single type of home care service or a combination of services, depending on the complexity of their needs and what’s prescribed by their provider,” says Theresa Schultz, Director of Home Health at Touchette Regional Hospital.

Services available:

Skilled Nursing isprovided directly at the patient's home and may not be performed safely and effectively by the patient or their families.

Social Services evaluate the social and emotional factors that impact a patient’s recovery from an illness or disability and provide counseling as needed to the patient and family. They also help patients and their family members identify available community resources with the goal of keeping the patient in their own home as long as possible.
