Home Health Aids - Knox County Ohio Mount VernonThe Knox County Health Department has been providing home health services for 50 years – we truly are your “Hometown Home Health” agency.   Our program offers an alternative to extended hospital stays and nursing homes by providing professional medical and personal services while teaching the family ways to take a more active role in the patient’s care.

 All medically related services are administered under a physician’s plan of care. The client’s assigned case manager works with the physician to be certain the client’s condition is followed very closely.

It should always be your choice when deciding on a Home Health program; an agency should never be assigned to you. Call us at 740-399-8011 to see how we can help you.
