When you're recovering from an illness, an accident or surgery, there's no better place to be than home.
Our home health providers will come to your home and provide an extension of the medical care directed by your doctor. We can also help you learn to manage chronic disease and understand your medications.
Home health care is available throughout King and Snohomish counties.
Why home health care?
