Respiratory Care at Home | Respiratory Disease Care

What is Respiratory Disease Care at Home?

New Century Home Health Care provides skilled nursing services for patients with respiratory disease to help them heal at home and get back to being independent again.

When a physician writes an order for home health care services, one of New Century Home Health Care’s registered nurses will visit the patient’s home to assess their needs.

The nurse will ask the patient questions about his/her hospital discharge instructions, diagnosis, symptoms, medications and more. This information helps the nurse create a unique plan of care. 

At New Century Home Health Care, we believe the healing process is quicker in the comfort of one’s home where you feel more at ease and secure when surrounded by loved ones in a familiar setting. We bring the highest level of service into the home with compassionate care and understanding.

Our team of Skilled Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Medical Social Workers, and Certified Home Health Aides closely work and coordinate with our patients’ physicians to address our patient’s individual needs.
