ELITE Recognition

Home Care Elite Recognition
For the ninth consecutive year Foothills Visiting Nurse & Home Care, Inc. has been recognized as one of the top Home Care Agencies in the country by HomeCare Elite. Measures for recognition include quality of care, quality improvement and consistency, patient experiences, process of care measures and financial performance.

Foothills Visiting Nurse & Home Care provides home health care for people in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. As patients return home after receiving medical care, Foothills' home care services help them continue the recovery process at home. The type and frequency of care needed are determined on an individual basis and always with the concern and respect that have become hallmarks of the Foothills' staff.
Foothills operates with the sensible balance of state-of-the-art technology and the compassionate, individual attention and care each person deserves. In addition to home nursing services, physical, occupational and speech therapies, as well as the services of a dietician, are available.

Foothills provides medical social work services to help patients and families with the complexities of insurance and finances. If personal care is necessary, home health aides, supervised by a nurse, are available to help patients with the activities of daily living and to encourage independence.

Foothills provides services in specialized areas, such as: mother and child care, wound care, IV therapy, and nutrition counseling. Telemonitoring, ultrasound, bladder scans, pulse oximetry and anticoagulation therapy are some of the technologically advanced services patients may receive in their homes.
Foothills reaches into the community with events including flu/pneumonia vaccination clinics, blood pressure screenings, cholesterol testing, foot care clinics, bereavement groups and in-home cosmetology services.
The mission of Foothills' Medicare-Certified Hospice Program is to enable people to spend the final days of their lives at home, in peace and comfort, with the loving support of their families; and with expert pain and symptom control provided by hospice trained nurses. In some cases, hospice services can also be provided in a skilled nursing facility or hospital.
The cost of home care services are usually covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance plans. At Foothills, costs are not a barrier from providing the care a patient needs. Private donations help to cover the costs of care for those who may not have insurance coverage.

"Because We Care" Capital Campaign for Expansion!

The agency has operated out of its present home since 1976, with one addition made in 1991. As home health care needs continuously increase, Foothills VNA and Hospice has been keeping pace and providing quality care while envisioning and planning for this expansion.

A Systematic Plan for Expansion

Through careful evaluation, professional management and responsible planning, the steps leading to this addition have been underway for some time.

In 2002, Foothills purchased a house at 84 High Street and acquired new space for parking.

In 2006, the property at 82 High Street was purchased and razed to become the site of the new addition.

In 2008, the property at 66 High Street was purchased and razed for parking required for the addition.

In 2009, the process came to fruition with the start of construction of the addition.

We look forward to serving you in our new facility!
