Home Health - Skilled Needs Services

John Muir Health offers home health services that assist homebound patients of all ages who live in Contra Costa and parts of Alameda and Solano counties. Our patients include those with certain cardiac, respiratory, wound/ostomy, diabetes, neurologic, pediatric, and medical/surgical care needs.

If you are homebound and have a skilled need, your doctor can order our services for you. They include skilled nursing; physical, occupational, and speech therapy; medical social work; nutrition counseling; and Certified Home Health Aide services. We work closely with you, your family and your doctor to provide the best care possible.

An exception to the homebound status is the Maternal/Newborn/Pediatric Home Care Program which is a unique service that provides assessment and care to the newborn and mother, and information/instruction to the family.
