Helping patients live well at home
Psychiatric home health care is a clinical specialty of home health services in which psychiatric nurses, social workers, home health aides, and occupational therapists visit the patient with a psychiatric diagnosis in the patient's own home.
Services from BJC Home Care are provided by experienced psychiatric nurses who are master’s degree graduates. They follow a plan of care that is developed and signed by a psychiatrist in consultation with the psychiatric nurse and reviewed at least every 60 days by the psychiatrist. Psychiatric home health services may include skilled assessment, evaluation, psychotherapy, teaching and counseling.
