What to Expect

Optage Home Care – Independently You

An interdisciplinary team specializing in geriatric care, focusing on treating older adults with chronic conditions or recovering from illness, injury or surgery in the comfort of your own home. Our home care is designed for people who are homebound and need short-term medical care in their homes. We have person-centered care: a comprehensive care plan created just for you and your goals to help you be as independent as possible, improve your health and enhance your quality of life.

When a physician orders skilled home care related to a new medical need, chronic conditions, or recovering from illness, injury, or surgery, comprehensive home care is provided in your own home for a limited time in coordination with your physician and other practitioners to support your independence.
