About Medicare Home Health Services

Castor Home Health, The Joint Commission Accredited agency for quality and safety

About Medicare Home Health Services

Castor offers home health services that are readily available to assist our patients at home, assuring that the patient’s safety and overall comfort will be responsibly and professionally tended to in a fashion that enables our patients to maintain their independence while receiving the appropriate level of supportive care. Home health care is far less expensive than the care received in hospital settings or within skilled nursing facilities. Castor services can be customized to perfectly meet the highly individualized needs of patients with respect to the number of visits scheduled, level of service required for individual ailments, and additional considerations such as assistance with tasks, appointment making and more.

Castor Home Health services offers to immediately begin providing you in-home care and assistance in a highly professional, compassionate, and empathetic manner. Doctor’s orders are needed to start care. Once your doctor refers you for home health services, we will schedule an appointment and come to your home to talk to you about your needs. We will also talk to your doctor about your care and keep your doctor updated about your progress. We see you as often as the doctor ordered. We will coordinate your care and communicate regularly with you, your doctor and anyone else who gives you care.
