Thus, while receiving quality health care, the individual may remain at home, enjoying a way of life as closely related to normal as possible.

Visits are made as often as therapeutically necessary.

Patient must be under the medical supervision of a licensed physician to receive skilled visits. The physician prescribes and approves the services to be provided.
