You don’t have to leave your home to get the skilled healthcare services you need. ThedaCare At Home can help.
Who We Serve
ThedaCare At Home serves people of all ages throughout Wisconsin’s Fox Valley region, including adults, children, and infants. Most have short-term skilled care or rehabilitation needs following a hospitalization or illness. Others need temporary or ongoing assistance for chronic conditions, such as congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hypertension, cancer, or diabetes.
The services you receive are customized to your needs and wishes, as well as your doctor’s recommendations. You have the final say on which services you will receive. We provide ongoing progress reports to you, your doctor, and your entire ThedaCare team to ensure you’re getting the care you need. We can also keep your family members informed, too.
The care providers who visit your home are locally based ThedaCare employees who are highly trained in their fields. Members of your care team may include registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, rehabilitation therapists, medical equipment specialists, respiratory therapists, and wound specialists.
Scheduling Home Care
Anyone can request an initial home care visit, including you, a family member, or your doctor. However, before you receive care, you will need a doctor’s referral. To arrange an initial visit to assess your situation, call 920-969-0919 or 800-984-5554.
Following the initial visit, we’ll help develop a schedule that suits your healthcare needs and living situation. For emergency or same-day needs, a registered nurse is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Paying for Home Care
After your initial home care visit, we’ll develop a service plan, which a nurse will review with you. You’ll receive an estimate of the costs and insurance coverage for your services before you sign up.
Most of our services are covered by insurance if you meet certain criteria. Generally, you must require assistance to leave your home, such as needing a cane, walker, or another person to help you. You must also need skilled nursing care, physical therapy, or speech therapy. If you have just been discharged from the hospital, you will likely meet these criteria.
