Home Health Monitoring for Heart Failure and COPD (Community Health Services)

Home Health Monitoring is free service offered to clients in their home.  Besides measuring their blood pressure, pulse, weight and oxygen saturation, clients complete a daily care plan designed to help them better recognize and respond to their heart failure or COPD symptoms.  The information is sent to a nurse who monitors and supports the client.  Biometric reports and any medical concerns are communicated to the client’s family physician.  Patients only need a definitive diagnosis and be symptomatic to qualify for referral.   Palliative Care and Multi-morbidity coming soon.
