What is the Almost Home program?
The Almost Home program provides short-term rehabilitative services in a hospital setting. The Almost Home program makes available the full range of Henry County Hospital’s services to its patients, and emphasizes an aggressive rehabilitation and medical program that helps build strength and endurance.
The Almost Home Difference
This program allows patients to stay close-to-home while still receiving the best possible care. Patients will appreciate the continuity of care; having access to the same staff who treated the patient during their hospital stay, as well as the convenience of having instant access to necessary services in one location. Another benefit of the program is the Almost Home Coordinator who works closely with patients and their families on admission and discharge planning.
Who is eligible?
Patients admitted to the Almost Home program must meet the following criteria:
- Prior to admission, Medicare patients must have been hospitalized for acute care for at least three consecutive days; within the last 30 days for the same condition.
- The patient must be admitted by a physician.
- Must be able to tolerate therapy and/or need skilled nursing care.
The cost of the Almost Home program per day is similar to nursing home costs. Insurances such as Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance and Workman’s Compensation can be used to assist with payment. Nursing home insurance policies may also pay for the Almost Home program. Private insurance may require pre-certification prior to admission. For questions regarding payment, contact Patient Financial Services at 419-591-3813.
