Becoming a Patient

To obtain long-term home care services, patients must:

  • Reside in Erie County
  • Have their physician’s approval with medical orders certifying the need for services
  • Live in a home where healthcare needs can be adequately and safely met

Referrals may be made by:

  • Physicians
  • Discharge planners
  • Patients
  • Family members or friends concerned about the care and well-being of the individual needing care

Upon receiving a referral, an evaluation is scheduled by one of our experienced nurse case managers. This evaluation will determine the patient’s eligibility for long-term home healthcare services.

If the patient is determined to be eligible, a plan of care is established and appropriate services are arranged and coordinated by the professional healthcare team. On an on-going basis, the plan of care is assessed and services are increased or decreased, based on the patient’s needs.
