Our licensed practical nurses provide basic nursing care, working under the direction of Otterbein Home Health’s registered nurses.
Physical therapy. Our licensed therapists assess and plan rehabilitative programs. They and their assistants improve your mobility, relieve pain, increase strength, and improve disabling conditions with movement and massage.
Occupational therapy. Our occupational therapists and their certified assistants treat you through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They help these patients develop, recover, and improve the skills needed for daily living.
Speech therapy. Our speech and language therapists can help teach you to regain powers of speech through strengthening vocal exercises. You can learn news ways to communicate more effectively with your family, friends and doctor.
Home health aide. Our friendly aides are indispensable wherever there is a skilled need. They can change your bandages, applying topical medications, and monitor your progress. They work under the direction on the registered nurse or physical therapist who establishes your plan of care.
Spiritual caregiver. Since physical healing benefits from spirituality, spiritual caregivers will pray, read scripture, or simply chat with you as you wish. We believe you deserve to be comfortable, happy, safe and respected.
Infusion. Some of our nurses specialize in infusion provide care and counseling if you require intravenous (IV) treatments, such as analgesics, antibiotics, chemotherapy or parenteral nutrition.
Wound care. Our certified wound care nurses specialize in the monitoring and treatment of wounds due to injury, disease or medical treatments. They perform a comprehensive physical assessment on each visit to identify any risk factors. They also teach the patient or caregiver to look for early signs of skin breakdown and infection.

On-site visits. To ensure a successful return home, our nurse liaison can visit you at the hospital or rehabilitation unit where you are staying before you are discharged.
