Interim HealthCare of East Tennessee is a locally owned and operated part of the Interim HealthCare family. Our professional nurses, aides, and therapists live and work near you and are focused on your Jefferson City area.

What is Home Health Care?

You may be unsure what home health care services actually are. In most cases, patients utilize this type of care when they are recovering from a hospital visit or procedure but would rather convalesce at home, as opposed to a noisy, busy, and expensive hospital. Doctors are overwhelmingly supportive of utilizing home care services when possible.

Depending on the level of care and specific needs of each individual patient, we arrange for one of our qualified nurses or aides to come to your Jefferson City-area home on a particular schedule. Your caregiver will check on your vitals, administer IV medications, or look in on wounds. These services are most often utilized by seniors but we actually serve patients with chronic and acute conditions of every age and even have a specialized pediatric program.

Home health care services are usually ordered by a doctor for a limited amount of time. If extended care is necessary, we can assist with that as well. 

Interim HealthCare of East Tennessee works directly with and bills your insurance company, just as your other medical providers do. Insurance companies are generally very encouraging of home care services, since they provide a significant cost savings over hospitalization.

As mentioned, we offer different types of home health care services:

  • General home health care
  • Infusion therapy. We assist with home IV infusions of several medications, eliminating the need to make a trip to the hospital infusion center.
  • Physical & Occupational therapy. A professional therapist will come to your home and work one-on-one with you to recover your physical abilities.
  • Wound care. Our Enterostomal therapy team can assist with home treatment of issues such as acute wounds, ostomies, leg ulcers, wound draining or fistulas.

In addition to home health care, Interim HealthCare of East Tennessee also offers:

  • Pediatric home care
