Home Health & Hospice
Providing Safe and Loving Care to Our Community Since 1992
Home Care for Franklin County
Lean On Us To Care for You and Your Loved Ones
Our services focus on the home, but reach beyond to friends and family, with many of our staff specifically requested based on the quality care they provide. Lean on us to help in the transition from the hospital or in working with a family member who has a developmental disability, all with the goal to empower patients with the tools, information, and support to make the best decision for their loved ones. We are Medicare and Medicaid Certified and accept private insurance. We do not discriminate by race, color, national origin, handicap, or age.
“It was a tough decision to bring in help for our Mom. We thought as a family we could handle everything ourselves. The care from the wonderful people at FCMC was comforting not just for her, but for our entire family.”
Our Focus of Care
Offering Choices and Self-Determination for Families
Home Health Care
Following surgery or an acute illness or injury, home care is a resource for you or a loved one. For patients whose doctors have determined they’re homebound, our nursing staff of RNs and CNAs are the glue to bring together the level of personal care you need, working to deliver a plan of comfort to prevent you from having to go back to the hospital. We coordinate with everyone from physical therapists for strengthening and movement, to a dietitian, and social workers; all for the best-rounded care in the comfort of your home. Trust us to provide care for the most complex patient needs (diabetic, wound care, high-risk meds, catheter needs) to helping mothers who may need helping bonding or breastfeeding.
We believe that care for terminally ill patients is about providing quality of life and compassionate care to the entire family. Wherever you or a loved one chooses is the most comfortable (in-home, local assisted living or nursing home), our team of providers offer comprehensive hospice care that includes going beyond the daily medical needs. From family bereavement counseling and help planning for a funeral or respite care, to a patient who has individual wishes for end of life pain management; our comprehensive hospice care for all ages serves an essential role to our community.
DDA & Residential Habilitation
The Developmental Disabilities Agency (DDA) program allows us to provide services to members of the community that have developmental needs. Working with people as young as three years old, we concentrate on life skills for people to reach the full potential and quality of life they deserve. Our staff has experience with a wide range of developmental disabilities such as down syndrome, autism, and seizure disorders to behavioral challenges that may require a different structural environment. We also help during life transitions such as when a person leaves the school environment, and provide opportunities for outdoor adventures through Common Ground. Rest assured knowing that caregivers work with the entire family unit for complete care and help.
Home & Community Based Services (HCBS)
When your loved one or the family caregiver needs some extra help in the home, we are the only provider in Franklin County that is authorized by Medicaid to give additional home, community, and personal care services. Our nursing assistants will come to your home for help preparing meals, bathing, pediatric care, or care of a child with special needs. Need help coordinating with other community services like meals on wheels or Pocatello Regional Transit for transportation? Once you’re approved for HCBS, there are so many areas of care we are happy to provide.
AAA (Area Agency on Aging)
Run by the Southeast Idaho Council of Governments (SICOG) office in Pocatello, the AAA for Southeast Idaho is a grant based agency that helps adults age 60 years and older. The program is designed to fill the gap for those who don’t qualify for a skilled plan or Medicaid benefits but need help with light housekeeping, meals, respite care, home safety check, and personal care. Our team offers assistance in applying for a grant or can provide information to help contact the state directly.
Veterans Administration (VA)
Sometimes navigating through the ways and means of the VA can be a stressful for veterans who need medical care inside the home. Our team is here to work on your behalf to get you the full benefits that are available to you. We communicate directly with your VA manager to be an advocate for you or your veteran family member to provide a services plan that gives you the quality care you deserve.
For the times where you or a family member may be alone without the ability to call for help, use our Lifeline personal emergency response system. The system is designed to work with a phone landline for reliability and fits as a pendent around the neck. Once you push the button for help, Lifeline will attempt to contact members on your pre-approved list, then if needed dispatch an ambulance. Our team will also receive a print out of notifications when Lifeline is used to help provide an overall picture of your needs.
Private Duty Service
We realize that not all patients have insurance to cover needed services or may not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid programs. For private pay services, please contact us directly for current rates and availability.
Drug & Alcohol Screening
If your business needs pre-employment, post-accident, or random drug screening for you employees, we offer commercial plans. We work with over 50 businesses in the area to provide drug screening in a professional facility. Call us directly for current rates and availability.
