Gentiva Home Healthcare Overview
There are a lot of things about home healthcare that you may not realize if you’re looking into it for the first time. First of all, it’s one of the most underutilized and valuable Medicare benefits out there. But it’s also one of the most misunderstood. Gentiva home healthcare is not a sitting service. Instead it is highly skilled care that comes to you at home. Our mission is to help our patients live more independently with a higher quality of life. We work with your physician to carry out their orders and serve as their eyes and ears. Most importantly, we deliver compassionate care from the heart where you want to be cared for most - right in the comfort of home.
What is home healthcare?
Imagine if a nurse or a therapist could bring you skilled care at home while teaching you how to live more independently so you can stay in your home. That’s what our home healthcare is all about. Our home healthcare services can help you rehabilitate from medical events like stroke or surgery. We can also help you manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, COPD or arthritis. Simply put, home healthcare from Gentiva helps you recover, remain at home, and live your life to it's fullest.

The Gentiva Difference
Many things separate Gentiva from other home healthcare providers. We believe that our clinicians are the best trained in the industry. We continue to innovate and bring new ways to care for patients at home in ways that help them stay at home. We continue to focus on measurable outcomes that provide proof of our success. And we have a track record that goes back 40 years.
Yet one of the main differences isn’t scientific or clinical at all. At Gentiva, we never forget that we are a company that believes in care that comes from the heart. Maybe that’s why more than 30,000 patients a day and over 700,000 patients a year trust us to come into their homes.
